So! I will splurge out to you my news, the posts I missed, and all the rest :D Because so much good luck and fortune has come my way!
You all may know I am having a free giveaway of 2 archival signed prints of a painting of the winners choice right now on my Facebook! I was really lucky through the share of Tammy Mae Moon to be seen by the creative director of The Forgotten Goddess! She asked me to send some paintings to her for a show in Hollywood at the end of March!! Talk about pressure :P
I had just started my next Bird Girl, with the same gorgeous model as my Rebirth girl - Michelle. She was originally supposed to be a Bird Girl, before my tangent with my deer painting. I picked out her bird to be a Golden Eagle... which I am now trying to rush and finish to send to the Forgotten Goddess asap!!

Since I needed to get Rebirth ready to send right away I took it to my art supplier Martin - who did a beautiful job framing her

This week I was actually inspired by my models. Especially during this time trying to think of a collection to paint and put together for my show, I have met some really cool people! They are my true inspiration this week, as they help me come up with ideas, deal with my crazy reference sketches I send them and are all around really sweet people:

With the show in Hollywood, an art show over Easter with the Skurup art group, and a solo show in Malmö, I have my year pretty much packed for as long as I can see it at this moment.
Wish me luck with all the stuff Ive got to accomplish, and thank you for all the support so far!!
I hope to get better and better and create a fantastic collection...
which btw will be titled.....
Very me right? I think so. Should be fantastic.
I will be sure to keep you all updated, and until then!
All the best from me :D
