To say that 2013 has not been my year,would be an understatement. While on vacation in Florida last week,I tripped an fell on a boat dock. I suffered an open dislocation of my right index finger. Needless to say, it will be a long road of physical therapy before I can paint again. Thank you for stopping by my blog to check the progress of my painting. I am considering teaching myself to paint without using my index finger!

At any rate, if this seems a little lacking,it is because it is. I still have a long way to go on this project. This is the point at which I must silence my inner critic,and carry on with what I know I need to do! And by silence,I mean blindfold, gag and bind her and put her in the corner. Honestly, do all artists go through this?
In the mean time, I have created more designs for my Zazzle shop. Here is just one of them:
Last year, I entered the Art Prize contest in a nearby community. I am beginning to plan for this year's entry. I am thinking of doing something along the lines of this painting, perhaps in 3d or sculpture form. If I do this, I will most likely blog about it!

Just to check in, yes I am still working on the painting from the previous post. Got very much side tracked by the holidays. A particularly nasty case of the flu was involved,as well. I have been busy, though. I have set up a shop on Zazzle http://www.zazzle.com/maryscove. Please check it out,when you have a moment. For those who are not familiar with Zazzle, it is a web based company that prints designs on merchandise. So if you would like one of my designs on,say, a tee shirt,this is the place to go. They have literally hundreds of options,mugs,clocks,hoodies,cards,messenger bags. I will strive to have different designs for this shop,than on my Etsy page. Though,if you would really like to see those designs on Zazzle merch, just let me know!
