Time For New Ideas!

It's been a long time. I have been a tad busy but everything is going great. I have been accepted as a finalist for The Icon Prize . A chance to participate in this project, the republished book cover for the wonderful novel "The Unfastened Heart", is very exciting and I am truly honored. I know, I know - it sounds lame but it's true!

Also, I have just returned from a workshop at the Watts Atelier studying with Jeffrey Watts . What an experience! I will write about this in a blog by itself soon.

I feel the need to stretch my artistic wings! I have some new ideas for the next stage of my artistic journey. It involves abstracts...

Every time you knowingly hurt someone you lose a piece of yourself. I believe we are a culmination of not only our environments but also our actions. In the end, how much of us is left? The working title of my new series is titled “Fractured”. I am not sure when I will have the first painting completed or even started. I am sketching out my ideas now. I hope for productive thoughts, exciting ideas and I wish the same for you.

Best Regards, Monica
