Three jobs?

Soooo working three jobs now. Two full time and one part time. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME.

Long story behind it but my hours will die down in two weeks ( a bit at least). And I have some art to show, once I have the energy. But for now, I have five hours asleep ahead of me so it's bedtime.

Still makin da art.

So I'm trying to move my life forward a bit. I believe I am going to be applying to the graphic design program and the advertising program at Algonquin College here in Ottawa and see if I get in to one. Perhaps then I will be able to make my creative Visual Arts degree more employable. We shall see.

In the meantime, I am of the realization that no matter how much research into calls for submissions, etc I am doing the fact of the matter is I don't really have any art to submit. All of my good artwork is either in my parents house, destroyed by my horrid ex boyfriend or left behind to my friends once I moved. The tiny paintings I've been making aren't going to cut it. I've been buying some slightly larger canvases, but I do wish I had more money for big ones (like the five foot long painting I made once that didn't fit in a cab so I had to walk it home). Hence to be an artist - I must make art!

So I've been working on this. (Not quite finished)

Once again, terrible cell phone picture, but you get the idea. It's from an actual photograph that was not posed, caught in a moment when me and my friends were all laying on the floor cuddling. (We are wearing togas, it was a toga party for my birthday). There is a concept behind it, a reason for painting it, but if you want to find out what that is just ask!

So yes, I am still alive and painting. I will update with anything else in the future. In the meantime, any opinions on this one I would love to hear!
