This week really was a great week. I managed to get some studio time in and work on another new piece (see picture). I am always thankful for studio time; my little moment of sanity for the week.

Proud of the progress so far.

And when they do manage the sell, they so often sell themselves short. Myself included. I think there are several reasons for this.
