Being a resident of the United States I celebrate Thanksgiving with my family every year. I had a nice holiday and ate too much as usual.

7 hours is the amount of time it took me to create Kitty Lander, start to finish. I decided to take a break from my Crystal Cove mermaid piece this week and do something different. Since I’ve been wondering about the amount of time I spend actually creating art, I timed this one too.
24 hours into the piece, this is what I have. The mermaid is much further along. Everything but her fins and hair is colored in.
12 hours into my latest colored pencil piece, this is what I have so far. I’ve given this piece a working title of “Crystal Cove”.
How long does it take me to make art? Recently someone asked me how long it took to finish one of my colored pencil pieces.
This is my pencil box with some of my colored pencils. I have a nice case for them. It usually sits on the floor somewhere.
In the interest of expanding my social media presence, I now have an account on Instagram. My user name there is “dancortopassi”.
I have added an events calendar to the website. This is similar to the “shows” link on the old site. It will display upcoming art shows in chronological order.
I have added a contact page to the website. The page has my email address as well as links for Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and YouTube.
I now have an account on Pinterest. There isn’t much there yet, but I plan to add more as time goes on.
