I have a lot of work-in-progress right now. Paintings, photography, website, love life, holiday social life... nothing of which is going particularly well but moving in the right direction.
I have taken on the challenge of teaching myself HTML and CSS. Once I started freelancing I knew it would be the best way to get my work out there by building my own portfolio site. I looked into A LOT of sites that you can just drop you're content into, but really what's the fun in that? Plus, I'm a curious person. I love learning new things all the time. I bought a couple books, picked friend's and colleagues brains and off I went. And here I am now, at a standstill. I know what I want the site to do and how I want it to function but I think I am getting myself in a little over my head. Any help/guidance is always welcome.
Finally have started painting again. It's always something I love to do but finding the right time to just dive in and get my hands dirty is always my biggest challenge. For some reason anytime I really get started on a painting and get into it someone always calls with some FANTASTIC idea to go do something. One Sunday I declined all offers and sat and got my visions onto my canvas. While this masterpiece is well on it's way... once again, I find myself at a standstill.
Photography... well, I can't really say I have too many projects going on right now but a few Christmas cards will be in the making in the next couple of weeks. I'm realizing that I love my photography more and more every time I do it. I am starting to think it may be something I would like to invest a little more time and money into. I usually like my results so much more than a lot of my painting and graphics work. (Will share some of the recent headshots in a moment)
Personal life... not too much to say. Men come and go, friends are always there. That is one thing I have to say I am truly thankful for this holiday season the friendships which are continuing to grow!
Quote I am living by at the moment, "...we are here for a good time, not a long time."
