I'm back...doing a lot of miscellaneous stuff lately...organizing the studio, taxes(!), updating files, cleaning out old stuff etc..etc.. so the blogging has taken a backseat...but saw "Julie and Julia" last night and it certainly pushed blogging back to the forefront! I'm not about to cook every recipe out of a book within a year's time, but I do have some other studio goals I'd like to achieve. I was looking back through some old sketchbooks yesterday and that is one thing I have been doing more of...just plain sketching. It's great practice for both your eye and hand.
