...I just wanted to break my 2019 posts up into different blocks of time for my own organization. I worked on what wound up being a prototype set of Northern Fish ornaments for my man for the first part of the year but then we split up and I sold off the set. When we reconciled, I reworked a new set and I think they turned out far better than the originals. Truth: art improves with practice and experience. I'm impatient by nature so my last thoughts don't always coincide with who I am :| Below is the first set as it was intended and then the second stellar set that turned out even better.
...The lake/island scenes were given as intended with the set of fish ornaments and magnet. These two projects really pushed me outside of my comfort zone as an artist and I felt really connected to them as someone who grew up camping and fishing but also because it afforded my love a special Christmas.
...Below is a kids craft project that I turned into something a little more artsy and fun for my buddy Lindsay for Christmas as well. I didn't end up posting to Instagram mainly because I forgot but...no time like the present (pun intended lol).
More on 2019 in my next post...
