Later days...

Man, I am not as good at blogging as I used to be. I think that I've wasted so much energy on trying to think up clever facebook status' that I have killed my creativing writing skills. I recently remembered my first and original online blog...before the days of livejournal and xanga. I went and searched for it, and not to my surprise, they had deleted it. But, alas, all I had to do was reactivate the account, and there it all is. I guess it's true that you can never get rid of anything on the internet anymore. From 2002-2005 I poured my little heart out to a small group of readers. If you're bored and feel like checking out some pretty sweet teenage angst, check'r out.
My tree and earth painting sold last week in a Cadet fundraiser auction! I wasn't able to make it, but I heard the young lady who won it was really happy. Mmmm it feels me with warm fuzzies.
I just finished this painting over Easter while I was visiting my family. We had a fun family auction, and my aunt scooped it up. Here it is...

Daisy in the Rough
16x20 acrylic on canvas.


In other news...I bring my portfolio into Capilano University this weekend. I'm actually quite excited to have it all put together and submitted. These past few months of stressing, creating, worrying and lack of sleep..I just can't wait for it all to be in there. Then I can relax, and know that I did everything I could, submitted my best. I feel more confident in my portfolio then what I originally felt at the beginning. Everyone think a few positive thoughts for me to get accepted!

Thanks scott! It's nice to be able to look back and see how I've evolved and changed...and in the many ways I haven't haha.
