So……I have had the busiest month ever….!!!! Juggling day job and art studio!! Mental fatigue.
I only breathed a sigh of relief TODAY…. knowing that I’m not preparing for a craft fair or working on a commission neither am I working my day job (school’s out for summer break).
I have been pulling myself in all directions!!!! Burning the candle period till my fingers were dripping with hot wax….what a burn!
Not once did I watch Netflix or Amazon Prime…..at least not till today.
Now that I can rest…. I appreciate the hard graft I have put in these past 5 weeks!!! It took me 5 weeks of pulling myself in all directions to complete the commission I was working on. I loathed and loved every minute of it ….the adrenaline rush of racing deadlines really is something.
Boxed and delivered.
Wraparound case binding
Concertina fold pages (work in progress)
Cover – acrylic and gesso over gold leaf (work in progress)
Painted (work in progress)
When I started painting the covering for this journal….I kept doubting myself.
The finished product blew me away….didn’t know I had it in me to complete this commission….just knew that I had to carry on.
And the buyer was delighted. Sigh of relief.
