It has been a crazy spring and summer, and I have been both overwhelmed and underwhelmed by all that has been going on. I have been working on more of the Female Archetype Project which will be soon transforming into the Human Archetype Project as I begin to incorporate male archetypes. I have been feeling pulled in a million directions while trying to do research for the book writing aspect of the project, focus on my own spiritual journey, pay bills, work with clients and all of the million day-to-day things which come up constantly. Mind you, I’m not complaining, being busy is a good thing… But it has also caused me to reassess my life, my goals and my focus.
Bearing in mind that I love working with my clients, creating art with and for them, I have decided that I will be severely limiting the commissions I take on going forward. I will no longer be creating more standard portraiture, but will be only taking on commissions that go along with my painterly style. I will only be taking 6 more portrait commissions this year and only 12 a year hereafter. I will still be taking business and actors headshots and taking occasional model development sessions, as they do not take the same amount of creative energy in post-processing and act as a left-brain balance to my personal work.
So, that being said, if you are interested in commissioning a portrait, now is the time to start the process! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form on the Contact page to get in touch and we can start planning!
And, to wrap up this blog post, here’s some eye-candy… One of my recent additions to the Archetype Project: “Great Mother, Babalon” with beautiful Aepril Schaile. I have two more images I am working on for this trilogy and I can’t wait to be able to share them all soon!
