Happy 09!

Hope everyone is having a good start to 2009! Sorry for the lack of posts, but it's been a busy couple weeks.

I've finally got a few photos from the show opening last month, which comes down in a couple days. Sadly, I forgot to take many pictures of the event as I was usually in the middle of talking to someone.

Some of the crowd. Lots of former colleagues and pals.

Me bredder.

Niece.

For my first art project of the year, I was asked by my sister in law to paint a castle mural on cloud wallpaper for my niece's 5th birthday party. Used a couple tiny stickers for the castle reference, but altered the design and colors. I ran out of time to do some of the nice detailing I wanted to do, but the kids seemed to like it nonetheless.

Mixing colors.

Action shot.

Final product.

A gaggle of princesses.


Lastly, I have a bunch of goals for the New Year and beyond:

1. Get better at painting
2. Start working on my next solo art show for Sept.
3. Finish my website
4. Start selling stuff on Etsy
5. Do studies of artwork I admire (goes with #1)
6. Take a painting class (goes with #1)
7. Clean and organize the garage
8. Get into some group art shows
9. Finish watching the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVDs
10. Finish watching My Life As A Teenage Robot episodes
11. Play more soccer
12. Be a better husband and more patient person in general
I have more, but that's enough for now...
