You know...all the cold, rainy weather we've been having in my area is really getting to me! And there seems to be no end in sight....rain, snow showers, and outright snow are all in the forecast through the weekend. Yuck!
So I went looking for something to cheer me up today...without having to go outside. I worked on a couple of paintings hoping that would do it...which it did...a little. I visited all the blogs I followed...and realized that it had been awhile since I had done this. Oops! Looks like I missed some great postings...fortunately they were still there, waiting for me. Good stuff everyone! Great ideas, great postings, great art work. Reading all of this helped....
This also helped...a Facebook posting by my friend Chelsea C., a recent grad of DAAP, who's looking for her big break. Recently she received a commission to design artwork for Macy's Music Festival that takes place every summer in Cincinnati. I was fortunate to see her earlier sketches so it was very exciting to read her posting and find out that they are using her work as the banner art for the festival's website! Isn't this great stuff! A big congrats to Chelsea!!!

So...I don't feel quite so glumpy...still a little....maybe chocolate will help!
