Hello! How is everyone in LiveJournal Land?
I've been enjoying this week, putting most of my time towards a book cover commission for author Lewis Allan
. I'm really enjoying this piece, and what I've read of his book is fantastic, blending the mythos of vampires and angels. I've been working on this piece throughout most of yesterday and today.
I also started a new page/category on the SilverFlame Art site-- The Wilderland
. This will be a collection of my faerie-themed sketches, paintings, short fiction, prose fragments, and the occasional poem. This will be frequently updated with new and old creations, with no real schedule.
Speaking of Faerie, I haven't had a chance to work on the Midwinter Blessings
piece this week due to my focus on the large commission. I'm hoping to dedicate at least a few hours to it, hopefully at least completing the grayscale figure. It can be difficult to juggle multiple painting projects at once, which is one of my goals for improvement this year. I get so caught up in a single project during one sitting that I spend all day working on it. I'm thinking, actually, that it might be beneficial to schedule days
for each project, rather than trying to do a little at a time on each every day. Though the latter sometimes works too, if I'm having difficulty with focusing or getting things to look right. I guess it never hurts to mix things up a bit.
How is everyone? It's been so quiet on here!
