I've been sitting here, staring at this journal page for ten minutes, and I still can't think of a single interesting thing to say.  How prosaic is my life at this particular moment!  Eat, sleep, hassle the mainframes, make art, read books; lather, rinse, repeat.  We'll just call this a place-holder statement until something I have something more interesting to say.  ;p

Thanks; I'm glad you enjoy my work. 

I get my stones from a local rock and gem show that comes through a couple of times a year.  There's a dealer out of Arkansas who brings in most of the stones I use in my art.

Hey there Rachael!
I love your new stuff! I've done plenty of new artworks but they're pretty big (14 x 17) but I was able to scan them all by sections and forwarded them to a close friend of mine who has photoshop and he will stitch/connect all of the pieces for me. I might upload a work in progress photo of the artwork which I'm working on these days, there's a dragon in it.
The art is about some of the things, creatures and apocalyptic scenarios that I had seen in my dreams a while ago. I can't wait to finish it. Been searching for new jobs these days and I am also going through personal dramas and things in that nature that prevent me to work on my art from time to time.
anyhoo, I hope all is well!

Take care and catch you later:)
