monday morning inspiration

As I've taken the first few steps into displaying my work in public, I've learned a whole lot. I didn't realize how much work goes into it and I'm feeling exhausted. There's so many little details and touch ups here and there... my clothes have speckles of paint, in my house lingers the faint stench of uv protective spray, and my mind is on overdrive. My index finger is a little stiff from my obsession with getting perfect pictures and my wallet feels lighter but I have pretty new business cards on the way.

I've decided it would be nice to put together a portfolio of my past work to have with me at the wine tasting this Wednesday. I decided this yesterday and with volunteering today and trying to finish homework and 2 more paintings, I haven't really left myself much time to put it together... but here are a few of pictures of my work old and new (I don't have pictures of a lot of my earlier work so this starts last year)... I'll start with the oldest and move towards the newest and hopefully my journey on canvas inspires you on this monday morning.
