I’ve got a working scanner again. I need to get though a little backlog of smaller works that need scanning. I started with my most recent painting of Notre Dame.


Got Back to the States about a year ago. Now I’m living in Mountain View, CA.
Thing have been… complicated, but my new studio space is nice.

First Feature

I got my first ever redbubble feature, it was in the New Orleans group.

It was just a little vacation photo I posted for one of the contests. I did get some good shots on that trip though. We’d spent the weekend at the Myrtles for our 10th anniversary.

First Sale in a Brick and Mortar Shop

I sold my first piece over at Magazine Metals, and the lady wants a pair of earrings to match the necklace.

There is another JAJO Expo coming up but it has been moved from October to November 21, and this time there will be no door charge. will have some of her lovely clothes there this time as well.

I’m getting some matte for my prints. I sold three last time unmatted. And I’ve already sold one of my left overs over on Etsy.

Sales and Such

Ok, the traffic at the JAJO expo was pretty light but I still made $60 over table money. Granted table money was only $25 which is very low. $27 of that was friends and family purchases but the rest was all strangers.…

We met some nice people and made some contacts, one of whom we will probably buy many clothes from in the future.

I sold two prints which is my first art sale to a stranger. Next time I will have them properly matted instead of just in clear bags.

I might end up putting some matted work on Etsy or eBay at some point too. Maybe even some original drawings.

I brought some stuff over to Magazine Metals b/c the guys at Reservoir said they might like my stuff, and they said I could leave everything I brought for consignment. I’d passed by and seen the cool stuff in the window bef

JAJO Arts and Craft Fair

I’m going to be doing my first craft fair on July 25.

It will be at Zeitgeist Multi-disciplinary Arts Center, 1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd between Terpsichore & Euturpe, from 11:30-5:00.

I’m going to be selling chainmail jewelry and prints. There is supposed to be one every three months so I might do this one again if I sell anything.

Studio Woes

There is a leak in my studio but nothing was really damaged. The only two painting that got wet were already pretty marked up from Katrina. However there is a huge puddle right in the middle of my work area. I pulled out the wet ones and used the blow drier on them for a bit. I’m not sure if I’m going to try to get the new stain off of the big one yet, I feel like it’s seen enough bleach.

Hopefully this will be resolved pretty quickly.

Rae has also started on the additional lights that I need for that room but she’s also just been swamped by homework so I don’t really know when I’ll have those.
