Whew.

Wow, April was a whirlwind. And the first half of May...wait, how did this happen? It's May 20th? Head down, blinders (mostly) firmly in place means SO much has transpired in the creation of this fresh new aspiring artists' life: 2 new paintings done, 1 nearly done and 2 more underway, a website I built myself (YAY!), fancy business cards, a new 'job' for which I get PAID to paint and chat with interesting folk at a gallery, was commissioned to do a couple of paintings (double YAY!!), got art test printed on tights and scarves (result = awesome!), made paper prints of my art made for distribution in galleries, hooked into various social media networks, acquired a car, a kundalini dance habit, weekly kirtan addiction, regular jungle hikes and dips in the ocean...and made friends with our goat neighbours. Whew. That's a few things. Not to mention visits from 4 friends during which I took 'time off' to be both a tour guide and tourist. What a blessing and a solid reminder of the sheer awesomeness of this place (and that i need to take breaks from my computer/studio now and again). 

Next goal: keep up with social media! (ie. blog more!)
