A New Year means a new start and I have finally gained a room for my portraits, a proper studio! The feature wall has been painted and finished in green to match my website with two Portraits hanging and I am currently having a logo made to put on the opposite wall the other side of the room.
I have an ‘office’ desk where I sit at my computer to do all my admin and my Portrait bench which currently has Anya sitting on it waiting to be framed.
I have a fantastic new daylight lamp with is going to enable me to work longer in the evening (normal house lights make everything very orange) and an all important ‘Simon’s Cat’ Calendar to keep track of the date!
Over the weekend I am going to set up my packing and posting corner where I have invested in some sturdy planks of wood and a saw to ensure all Portraits stay flat and protected in the post with cut to size packaging.
My easel is currently looking at me longingly to start some Oils and I have a Cat to draw for the Society of Feline Artists. On top of all this my website is currently under going a revamp on the Cat, Dog and Horse pages and I will be adding a whole lot more information about my Portraits in one big update.
I hope you have all had a fabulous New Year and everyone who ordered a Portrait from me in 2011 will be back for 2012, don’t forget Valentines day!
