While the last few months have been different to say the least, it’s great to be back here at our little castle in the clouds.
Since I haven’t stopped designing while away, we decided to continue SleepySundays here for a while to showcase any new designs.
I’ve had dreams lately again of other worlds. Some just like this one & some completely strange & just as beautiful. Some brought ideas for other projects that I’ve written down for later use. That was some of the inspiration behind these upcoming designs.
Alright friends & friendly strangers, we’ve got some great news!! We were able to save our business & website just in time! You know what that means, don’t you?? #SleepySundays resumes this Sunday & I’m taking requests for my services starting right now! Back to work!
Sundays lately have been a rest time for my family, but I still feel a draw to my work. So I’ve been working on some background sets in my spare time. This is one of those sets from a surreal series. I like the color palette for this one & may use it for another.
While most of you wait until October to see some of my horror-inspired designs, I remind you that horror is where my love for art and design began.
With a string of vivid dreams and nightmares lately, it’s no surprise I took a break from my tradition of spring floral sets to work on a horror piece.
My personal life has my career feeling like bloodletting lately. My love for art has not left me, however, the strain of having to design on a schedule has been a nightmare. Art has been a cathartic release, even if the scheduling causes me pain.
Financial stresses make operation a lot more difficult as well. As always, we will see what the cards hold.
With all that’s been going on lately, my dreams have been more vivid than ever. So I revoked the power of an old tradition between my grandfather & I & started noting a dream journal of sorts again. In a recent dream journey, a woman told me “Beyond the forest path, there lies another world.” So that was the inspiration behind this title & that is exactly the direction I followed.
