Well, hello again! As a teacher, the new school year getting rolling has REALLY kept me busy. I also had quite an unfortunate event kick things off -- my MacBook got stolen while I was at school on the first day of conservatory teaching :( I did have anti-theft software installed, but I haven't been able to track it. More importantly, I did have cloud back-up of my hard drive data through Backblaze -- yay! So glad I had my computer files backed up. That includes these Norse digital paintings! I was able to set myself up again on my partner's 2011 MacBook that wasn't really getting used that much. Phew. A crummy thing to happen, but it could have been an even bigger disaster.
Anyway, that whole experience put a crimp in my workflow for a bit... but I feel like I'm getting back on track. Been working on the Odin painting, as you can see above.
I also was able to get recommended through my mentor, Dorte Christjansen, for an artist profile for The Signal Tribune, a local paper! The Signal Tribune serves the city of Signal Hill, which is very unique as it is completely contained by the larger city of Long Beach, where I reside. The interview, including images of my work, is scheduled for the Oct. 3 edition. Yay!
Okee doke, back to work.
