Art Supplies Subscription Boxes

At the end of last year, I unsubscribed from the Smile Create Repeat box because I thought that it wasn't very cost efficient. The amount of the content often fell 10$ short and so I stopped receiving those boxes. However, I still receive the Art Snacks boxes as wells as the ones from Scrawlrbox. You get a lot of nice supplies for your $$$. I really like them, and they keep on challenging me every month. It's such a nice way to discover new supplies and get out of my rut.

The challenge each time is to draw something with only the content of the box. The Scrawlrbox even gives a theme.

Great news!

In March, I'll be having a show at the Ethel M. Weymouth gallery! I've been busy drawing for the show, but soon, I'll be listing animals and other art for sale.

New Look

Sandrine's Gallery's new look is coming along nicely. Just a few more slideshows need to be added to the gallery, and it will be done. Then, on to the store to add more items. There is a light at the end of the picture editing tunnel! Yeah!!!

In the meantime...

Last week I received some great news.

In September 2013, I sent out a painting to enter a juried art competition. It came back last week with a first prize. How exciting!
It's now ready to go to a good home.

Busy, busy, busy!

I know I haven't been posting a lot lately.

In December I'm usually very busy with Christmas custom portraits, which of course I cannot show just yet, or I might ruin someone's surpsise. So until I can show you what I've been up to, here are a few drawings I did not too long ago:

All the wonderful pictures....

... you can find on Facebook!

I particularly like this one. It reminded me of a conversation I had with my 9 year old this afternoon. She told me she was worried no one would remember her once she's dead.

So we talked about all the great things she could accomplish that would make people remember her, like Abe Lincoln or George Washington (just quoting her). She could become a great president, and finally achieve World peace. But she told me she doesn't want to be president, that the job is too tricky. So she'll have to invent or discover something. Or just be a great artist.

As for me, I don't really care if I'm remembered after I die. I just want people to buy my artwork now because that's the most gratifying feeling, and also because I need to start saving money for my daughter's higher education!
