Winter is Coming.

I lied.

It’s here.

I had a very cold, early bike ride this sunny, Sunday morning.  The kind where the sun is deceiving and you think it’s going to be warm.  Nope.  Windy and cold with a bite.  The kind where you wrap your head with your scarf and wear sunglasses only to end up fogging them up every 2 minutes. The kind where your thighs hurt from the cold.

Life is constantly changing.  Throwing challenges.  I’ve (barely) been able to get through them.  I can only hope it will get easier from here.  I think adversity has seemed a little more intense because I recently found out I have actually been sick for a few weeks and didn’t know it.  It all makes sense now.  I’ve begun to create a new support system of amazing people and it helps quite a bit.  Allowing someone to be close to you is a freeing feeling.

What else is happening?

. Maintaining friendships.
. Building relationships.
. Adding to my portfolio.
. Saving money.
. Learning from this new step in life.
. Slinging coffee, eating ice cream.

Christmas is almost here.

 I’m taking commissions for 8 x 10 drawings for the season!  I have a few clients booked already and I can’t wait to show you all what I have been working on.  Sadly, it will have to wait until after holidays.  So, if you are interested in giving someone a “Forsyth Original” (I crack myself up), please send me an email and we can work out the details.

Well Hello Again.

Well, hello again.

I had to take a brief hiatus from the bloggosphere. I became very caught up in work and then had to take a short leave for an emergency over in Scotland. I figured I would take the few personal moments I had to myself to take some inspiration with me.

I have also decided to start selling some of my designs to the Society6 website.  There are a few options and the prices are fairly low!  I figured, for the moment, it would be easier for me to go through there then to try to get all these things done on my own.  

In my own personal art news, I will be starting a new painting this week and I’m so excited to be finally getting back to painting.  I’m also taking a dip into a little more type and simple design type work for the online shop.

I can’t wait!

For now, take a look at my new shop!
