I'm Back! Finally...

Hello my fellow bloggers, artists and friends!  I can't believe I've been away this long!  So much of life happening and finally I am able to get back to the things I love - like making art in my studio!

First up, Butterfly Girl is begging to be developed so I am revealing her true identity - Jessalyn Bella -aka- Butterfly girl.

Jessalyn Bella aka Butterfly Girl

I'm in the process of redesigning her wings so they will be easier to reproduce as she goes on her adventures.

Butterfly Girl

I just wish I had some extra time to learn how to use my Bamboo tablet but for now I will continue to do her by hand.  I work so slowly that I could never do this for a living even if I wanted too! Ha!

My studio re-organization is done and I've added artwork from a very talented artist, Magaly at The Itsy Bitsy Spill. I just love the fun vibe and energy her artwork gives me!

The weather has been so dark you can't see the wonderful colors on the wall or the paintings - oh well, better luck next time.

I will try and get by your blogs for a peek, I've missed you all so much!

Forever in art,

Jessi -aka- ?

Butterfly girl is beautiful! I have a Bamboo tablet and it's gathering dust on the shelf because I don't know how to use it!!

The artwork in your studio looks great. Very colorful!

So glad you are back! It has been a long time. Of course, your art work is gorgeous, as it always is. I think the time you put into it is well worth it. Your art space looks so nice and clean and organized. Very nice and good for added inspiration. Hoping Spring will get here soon! Peace and blessings to you!

Hey Girlie! Great to see your post. Butterfly girl is very sweet. Love the detail you've sketched on her wings. As for your art space...WOW. It's obvious you've been a busy bee/butterfly. Hope to see more soon. BTW what happened to Sung-Hee? Have you heard from her? She shut down everything.
