In the meantime, I am looking past the 22nd of April, and starting to plan what comes next. I am thinking of taking the next step in website development and creating a website for posting artwork that is for sale. My plan is to have a website without the pop-up ads that my free website currently has! The only issue at the moment is to come up with a domain name. I had hoped to use my blog name (artbyam) as a domain name, but Amanda-Marie in Denver, Colorado, seems to have beaten me to it. Her website address is artbyam.com. I suppose I could use the .ca version, but people might get lost in Denver when looking for me online. Another alternative that is not yet taken, and yet is very simple, would be amlawrie.com or .ca. Hmmm. What to do....

I have to say that I really do like this self portrait. I rushed right out and found a mat and frame to fit it, too! And to think I made it all with words! Only the blue shadows on the face are actually scribbles; the red, yellow and black are words.

Terrapin (9" x 11.5")
"Toward the Light" is a bit different for me, as it can have all sorts of spiritual meanings, depending on the viewer. That being said, I often see faces and figures in random patterns (spackled ceilings, bark on trees, etc.). The swirls and patterns of paint on this monotype, combined with the bright yellow cloud-like shape in the upper left-hand corner, suggested an ethereal scene for these figures.

Now I need to peruse my other monotypes and develop two of them into abstract pieces. I think finding people and animals is easier!!!
