New Look for a New Year

A Happy belated New Year!

2017 was a busy year with work and family. I had the privilege of being a TA for a couple post-graduate classes at UCONN last spring, in addition to my full-time job as a CPA for a Big 4 Accounting firm here in Hartford. I painted the exterior of our home, which was a huge project that consumed my summer and into fall. We took a couple family vacations to visit family in Utah and a Notre Dame football game. I was asked to be the leader of the girls' youth group at church this past fall, which is ongoing and a new time commitment. And before I knew it, it was 2018! Looking back, I managed to get my 2017 NaMoPaiMo horse base-coated, but no further, and I made it to a couple shows in the Region. 

2018 is already off to a stronger start on the studio front than last year. www.FeldmanStudio.com has gotten a long overdue and much needed facelift. I'll keeping tweaking away at it, especially the view for mobile devices. And I'm thinking about trying to participate in NaMoPaiMo again this year. Who knows, maybe I can even finish last year's horse?

Thanks to Jen Buxton for this motivating event! NaMoPaiMo has taken on a life of it's own - with well over 200 participants! February has now become National Model Painting Month! From beginners to professionals, it's a great group to motivate everyone to paint and complete a model in the month of February. February is especially challenging given it's one of my busier times of year in public accounting, but I'm going to give it a shot. Brenda Bednar's show in early March is also motivation to have a new face ready to show. It's the first show in awhile in Region X that has the Artist Resin breed and workmanship on a Saturday, so I'm super excited! Showing around here is so awesome that most of the shows are a two-day affair. Since Sunday is my Sabbath, that means I'm showing in the AR/CM performance division on Saturdays (not that I'm complaining!).

Little Oliver was chosen as he's little, I have no painted pony foals, and he was mostly prepped (allowed in the rules). I plan to paint him a bay or chestnut tobiano in pastels and acrylics. I think he'll make a cute little Chicoteague pony! Wish me luck!
