Hi, i'm Julie and I'm a visual artist. I work with a lot of different materials, including clay, paint, wood, and fabric. My studio is in Little Rock, Arkansas, and this blog is where I share studio goings on, new work, and occasional whatnot.

sassy, taxes, and getting organized...

today's painting:

this is the other sassy painting.

i like this little gal.

i have decided to make a canopic jar for my little myrtle's remains. actually, it is technically not a conopic jar as these were used to hold organs, which is gross, but i like that word better than urn. i love egyptian art and so i thought this would be most appropriate. here are some beauties:

myrtle's will be made of clay.

on a more administrative note, i spent the last 2 days working on my 4th quarter taxes. what fun! but now that that is done, i can concentrate on my.....

GOALS for 2013! -for the blog; monday-fridays, weekends optional:)

(this is a working list)

1. make art everyday
2. post everyday
3. monthly studio projects updates
4. weekly studio projects updates
5. a photo a day

oh, and

6. finish and publish website
7. stock etsy shop
8. have a thriving veggie garden!

does that seem ambitious? well nothing can beat doing a painting a day, but i just couldn't do the same thing again. seriously. but i am not abandoning the project all together. i will continue the small scale paintings a post them as i do. perhaps one a week, perhaps more. but i am interested in some new bodies of work i've been kickin' around and am planning 2 art shows outside of arkansas this year. plus i MUST revisit clay which took a MAJOR back seat last year. i'm super excited to get started!

this weekend i'm gonna firm up my plan and then hit the ground running on monday! yay!

happy friday everyone!
