Ides of August by Sheree Greek

Well, this summer is passing by all too fast. I barely get a start on things and the ground shifts in another direction.

me OMG.jpg

The astrologers are chalking it up to eclipse season, and all answers will be clear by the middle of September. I am hoping so, because there are too many questions that are unanswered in my realm this season.

Like -Should I stay or should I go?

Jobs in my neighborhood have been relatively short supply this Summer. I have been picking up some odds and ends but nothing that steadily cover the bills. Timing was not on my side in these matters at all.

So, the next decision I had you make was to give up my art studio on Cannery Row. This studio has been the calm in my storms over the last 3 years. My sales never paid the rent and this Summer everything seemed to dry up in said sales department. So, I have decided to cut this cord loose.

I have loved being down on Cannery Row, all the old history and fisherman tales, it's quite intriguing. As the rents increased and the availability of no water for clean up became more annoying, I realized last month that this was no longer the right space for me.

The other piece of the story was- should I move back east to be closer to my Family? I thought that the answer was yes back at the end of July. The Universe has clearly had another plan for me, and that story is unfolding. Truth be told I am waiting patiently for the enlightenment.

So, I am in the middle of a major clearing of a 7 x10 foot storage unit and packing up Medusa's Emporium. Yikes what have I gotten myself into. As of September 30th this will no longer be my home away from home. A bit melancholy yes, but excitement for a new adventure is stirring,

Well, so many things to do -here, there and everywhere... Time to get cracking.

Yes, my Tarot Majors series was suppose to start today. That just went to the back burner. I think my next post will be about the backstory for that project... stay tuned.

Time Flies when you are having fun... by Sheree Greek

and it flies even when you are not having fun. It flies my friends- morning.noon.night

So I hid this blog for a couple of years not feeling the need to speak my mind about all things My World, but that changed today when I received an invitation to join an art/bloggers group.

Thank you Gesso Primed for the invite, I'm excited to inspire and be inspired.

So tonite I get more acquainted with the group and make a plan to do the work. Its time to start showing up again and I intend to do just that.

There are changes in the works on a couple of fronts and I am hoping that they will happen quickly, although everything does truly arrive when it's suppose to. 

So let's get this party started...

So much for posting often... by Sheree Greek

I have 2 other blogs out there in Cyber-space and they have never stayed up to date. 

I try not to beat myself up for it , but it does weigh on my conscience- not posting in weeks.

Please know I think of this blog often and am continuously doodling thoughts and comments to post. Reality sets in and blogging is usually my last thought of the day /and or week.

I have been busy with a few projects that leave me little time for sketch and or writing these days.

Only time will tell if these projects turn a profit or not.

Until next time you all-

Hopefully, I spy a big bag of cash when these projects are complete. xoxo -sheree

and August Touches down... by Sheree Greek

August is always a little bittersweet for me. Only a few more weeks of summer to go and what to do about it? For me it's painting. I've had some exciting things happen ion my desk this Summer and I believe this fall will offer a few more interesting invites. So August "let's get this party started.

Here are a few of the projects I have been working on-

It's a dreary Monday in my neighborhood, I hope the Sun is shining in yours. Friday can never come to fast!

Have a great one you all, xoxo sheree

The Ides of ...July by Sheree Greek

 4th of July Town Celebration- Pacific Grove,CA

4th of July Town Celebration- Pacific Grove,CA

When the 4th of July appears on the calendar this is my signal to get busy with Summer. You know walks on the beach.  Waiting for the moon to appear on those long slow evenings. Cooking outside or inside? Any or all of the above for me.

So off I go looking for the ideal summer stay-cation. Well maybe tomorrow, because there's some work started at Medusa's Emporium and it does need to be completed.

I have been working on sketches for my next "Dream " portrait. The painting on the easel is the start of the background and the image of the girl has been laid in (although not in this photo). So far so good.

I have also been asked to participate in a project that is very exciting for me. Stay tuned- I am still getting the news together.

 A fashion likeness I did for Stylist blogger Pilar Scratch--A very fun project.

I will be chasing my Summer dreams the next few weeks and not sure how much time I will have to check in here...but I will when I have news about town.

Stay Calm and carry on with the Best possible Summer you could ever have. I'm giving it my best shot!

In the Studio this week... by Sheree Greek

Last week was a crazy week. I had time in the studio, but also had some outside meetings with things that just plain needed to get done. So much to do so little time...

I am just about complete with My Venetian Dream painting. At this stage of the game I live with the painting a bit to let her tell me what is missing. I see a few slight finishing touches but overall I am pleased with the outcome of this 15" high x 30" long acrylic on canvas.

I also had a lovely meeting with a woman from a local business which inspired this fashion illustration. I am hoping more girls in the beach theme pop in for a visit. This girly was fun to complete.
