New Art, New Job!

 
My two latest pieces made their way into my Etsy shop this week, and me without a single post about them until today...such neglect! Since my previous hexagon piece sold, I wanted to give it a new spin with a new color combination. I love the yellow and teal pops of color! The green mod piece is definitely fun, but a bit more dreary than I originally intended. Painting without a real plan sometimes takes me down paths I didn't expect, and I'm always glad for that process. Somewhere out there, there is a room begging for both of these pieces to call it home!

I plan on beginning a new piece tonight in hopes of getting two or more pieces added to the shop before I begin...
You heard it right. The interviews went better than I could have ever hoped, and I was lucky enough to receive an offer shortly after. I couldn't be more excited to join the working world again, although there was a certain joy in taking a break from answering to the man. Perhaps someday I can rely solely on Etsy and my blog, but until then mama's gotta help pay the bills! I kick off my new endeavor on Monday as a Marketing Coordinator for a privately held, medium sized company in Overland Park, KS, so I plan on having a full weekend of painting before then. Thanks again for all of your good luck wishes, it must have helped. :)

Till next time folks...
