I’m not going to lie, this is not an original design. The beginning of February was really busy for me and I just didn’t have any ideas for what I wanted to be my cover page. I found this on Pinterest and thought it was really cute, so I went with it, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.
I don’t think I mentioned it in my last monthly update, but I’ve gone back to work 4 days a week with two days in the office. It’s been nice to have a routine again. I have off every Friday to focus on my art and it feels really good to take that time for myself to do something I enjoy. It’s nice also to have it at the end of the week so I can turn on some music to just decompress from the week and paint.
I’ve been doing a pretty decent amount of painting, but haven’t had many sales yet this year. I’m not necessarily worried about that though. I feel like this year is about building up my portfolio and making new pieces to offer on my website so that next year I’ll have this catalog of products that I can just promote and add to.
The second half of February was kind of strange because Freya was spayed. She did well and she’s so active that I was worried she would hurt herself. I had to sedate her a bit, but she seems to be recovering okay and I’m glad it’s over.
I’m ready for March and hopefully some warmer weather. I’m over shoveling and I really just want a nice day where I can clean up my yard and get ready for spring.
