Keeping Busy

Life is a funny thing, I've noticed. One minute you're despairing of ever creating a new group of friends or of breaking into the graphic design circles in your new town and the next minute you're swamped with freelance work, friends and opportunities. Not that I'm complaining.

I've found a couple of artists who hold an open studio night once a week and I've been painting with them. It's truly the highlight of my week. Their influence is helping me to continue my efforts to loosen up, not be so detail-oriented, and experiment.

I see that while I've been away, Blogger changed their formatting. I'm sure I'll get used to it but things aren't working very smoothly this first time round. Getting images exactly where I want them in the text is still challenging. What does everyone else think of the new Blogger? 

Work In Progress on another toucan. The eye's not painted yet, so it looks a little freaky. My new mentors are threatening to hide all my small brushes so I'm forced to get over my aversion to the big ones.
