Hi there, fabulous folks. I do hope your 2018 is wrapping up in a satisfactory manner. Over here at Number Four, Eliot is getting ready to go sell cheese to all those people who left their party provision shopping to the last minute, and I'm trying to cross off a few more things from the 2018 to-do list, including posting this painting (sorry for the light imbalance on it; I don't have a scanner so I have to take photos; the results are sometimes mixed; maybe I'll make a scanner my $500 a month goal).
2018 has been a year of many changes. Some hard, some good, some both. One of the biggest changes is I'm no longer working full-time. I'm a freelancer and part-time professor, and will be through May 2019. It's giving me a lot of creative time to focus on making things. Like this cool New Year's Eve painting, of all the gang together at peak glamor and confidence, as one might wish they had ever appeared in-text. And you, my dear fans and patrons, are a part of that. So thank you. I hope your 2018 has been much calmer than mine, but hopefully fulfilling and interesting all the same. And I hope we all have a 2019 that replenishes us body and soul. We mcfreakin' need it, am I right?
Two more things!
1. I'm thinking of rustling up a scanner by hook or crook or possibly the local library, and maybe investigating selling prints on Society6. Of this piece, and anything else I scrounge from around the house. If that sounds like something you'd be into, comment here or tweet at me (I'm @larazontally, if you didn't know).
2. Patrons at the $1 level get to see process shots of this painting, in this post! It's like getting the cut scenes from a book! Except with art!
Anyway, that's all for now. Drink bubbles and pop poppers tonight, and let's tackle tomorrow when it arrives.
