It is flat-out embarrassing how long it has been since I updated anything here! I've been checking my messages and watch lists regularly, but darned if I could be moved to post. This past year saw the hardest post-con crash I've ever had thanks to a year that was quite unusual and very busy overall. It genuinely felt GREAT to just say "To heck with it" and do a great of genuine nothing--save reading, cleaning, and relaxing--for a few weeks and to just let the holidays be the holidays.
That said, a few paintings did fight their way past my laziness, and I'll be catching my gallery up today. I also want to extend a BIG thank you to Pam cybelemoon.deviantart.com/
for gifting me a shiny new DA subscription! Mine ran out some time ago, and I confess, my missing it (but not being willing to pony up the monies to renew it after such an expensive year) was another reason for my absence. Now, to stage a semi-triumphant return!
Some of Pam's lovely jewelry:
Update: The newbie paintings (some of them, anyway!) are up!
May you all be well and wonderful, and Happy New Year!
