2nd Cup of Tea...

I am very excited to finally have my website completed. Well, enough so to put it up. Perfectionist me keeps saying "there is still much to do and improve upon!" but that is quickly hushed up by excitement.

First of all, happy 2010! A new year to make good on new beginnings and seeing new possibilities. It's true, when you set up smaller goals and you can achieve them it does much for your moral. With so much going on, it's easy to get caught up with a list that keeps growing.

Someone close to me said "Just give yourself an hour to focus on one thing you really want to do. And do that everyday." Simple, eh?

Here is my new growing list:
• Sketch everyday
• Go play with Prosculpt
• Continue my Magdalen story


  1. Hi Melissa, I love the website!
    Your artwork is so beautiful.
    I wish you would have been around when I wrote a children's book about a tea party. I never found the right illustrator. So in 2009 after years of sitting in a file I eventually started doing the work myself. I figured better late than never! I hope to complete it between shows and commissions by 2011.(fingersXXcrossed)

    The "hour a day" thing is so vital thanks for sharing it!

  2. Hello Rosanna, Thank you! It would have been a lot of fun to part of a project that included tea. But I am glad you were able to move forward with your creativity -crosses fingers with you- Life can be hectic, but I have no doubt that you will be able to accomplish your children's book.

    Post your progress! (It will inspire me to continue on with my Magdalen story)

  3. Hi Melissa, thank you for stopping in my blog for your kind words about my work! You do such beautiful illustration that I feel honored to receive such a compliment from you! Your work is really great, love your sense of color too! Kisses. Patrizia
