So I have been in some planning stage for the paintings, in Dec. 2013 I quickly painted up the last three paintings for 2013 with were the last three for the Female Protagonists in Film series.  The paintings are, Nice Outfit (Self-Portrait as Elle Woods), Pretty In Pink (Self-Portrait as Andie Walsh), and Loser (Self-Portrait as Josie Geller).

Also, in early January I started a new blog, Underexposed, which is dedicated to featuring newly emerging artists and sometimes feature news about art and art history.

Here are the links to my website and facebook which are updated with the new paintings.

I have been unable to upgrade my account for WordPress, so I cannot upload pictures at this time, so I’ll try to link through google until I can upgrade.

So about three weeks ago I spilled gesso on my carpet and freaked out, then Libby and my Mom saved me by prescribing the cure of Goo Gone and Carpet Cleaner.

Also for the past couple weeks I have been making sculptures and books. I do not have any pictures of my recent books yet, I am going to wait until I am finished making the box for my two “Andersen” books and completing the altered book and mini book that goes inside the altered book to take pictures and upload them to the blog.

I have decided on a final display for my Marie Antoinette paintings, also I have some awesome news that I will share probably sometime next week.

Also two weeks ago was the “Under Pressure” printmaking show at the Cummer of which Brianna, Sara, and myself attended to see the great Don Martin’s work (my independent study professor/book arts professor/gives me pep talks and has a mustache) and Ryan Tempro (classmate friend who paints with the impossible knife aka the palette knife). Their work was groovy along with the screen print I got from the UNF demo kids. Also because food is awesome, the food was awesome and I drank that wine faster than my norwegian blood could catch up with and the man that checked my I.D. took forever, I don’t think he believed I was 21.

In addition to art making I have been busy finishing papers, artist re-enactments etc. and its been awfully boring having to work on those projects, but I will soon be able to just sit down scan drawings and make sketches for my new series of paintings I am planning for 2013. Also I have been trying to make an effort to hang out with friends and do fun things, because it seems art tries to take over my life more than it should and that I can handle sometimes, so a little outing is nice once in a while or just plain messing around in the studio and not doing anything art related. I even listened to the Spice Girls CD “Spice” three times over the weekend and had my own personal dance party, along with spending two days with Callie doing random fun stuff. Thanksgiving I spent with my parents brother, Callie, Sofi, and Callie’s parents, it was really nice and now I think I’m just writing a journal entry… I’m going to stop and leave you with the Spice Girls.
