Night Tree Icicles (graphite, 8.75 x 6.5 in)

Hello. I’m all done with this drawing now. It’s drawing #7 of what’s going to be a large amount of drawings (don’t know the exact number yet) for the Taiga Series. I’m feeling pretty tired from working on it, ha. Like I kinda feel like I just got run over by a truck. As much as I enjoyed working on this, I am happy to be moving on to the next thing.

On September 11th I’m going to be taking part in the St. Louis Park Art Fair and I’m so excited! It’s been a long time since I’ve been in an art fair. The amount of things I need to do to prepare for it I’m finding is overwhelming, but I like that. After a year of quarantining and nothingness, it’s refreshing to have a massive to do list. I will do my best to update here more often as a way to hold myself accountable with my progress! I want to be sure I get everything done.

A few weeks ago, I visited the studio and art business of a local artist here in the Twin Cities whose work I’ve always admired, Heather Renaux (https://www.heatherrenaux.com). All I can say is the visit left me incredibly inspired. It also left me with this clarity I have been searching for all the last year, like, I left realizing I knew what I wanted to do with my art. I want to have an art business! Like really have one, not half-have-one, like I have over the years. Getting a glimpse into Heather’s art practice was like getting a glimpse into how I could one day make a full-time living from my art, if I could manage it that is… I’m definitely ready to try. I feel like I’ve been treading water for years, not really knowing how to apply my art to the real world. But now here’s something that’s giving me all the feels and motivation. Maybe this is it!
