Turning point?

Life is always an adventure. Along the way, there are many different changes and surprises. Sometimes things happens all at the same time that you have to decide which way to go. My husband made his decision already. He decided to work for a company that is far away with better pay. However, he has to separate from his family since he cannot always come home due to his assignments. That is his turning point. However, it's my kids' and my turning point too. We all hope for the best but sometimes things just won't go in our way. We just have to "go with the flow". I'm currently working on Pam and Cathy's book. At the meantime, I also have to carry on my day job as an administrator in a small firm. And Pam encouraged me to go full-time on the illustration career. It remind me the time when I took Andrew Hamilton's painting lessons back in 2002 or 2003. He asked me why I took his course. And I said I want to be an illustrator one day. Will it be my turning point? We will see...

About Pam and Cathy's Children Book

I was pretty excited to work with Pam and Cathy about the new books they are planning. It's a great opportunities that I can get involve with the kid's book publishing. The only thing I'm concerning about is not having enough time to work on it =) Not because of not enough "time" to do it, but the hours are mostly "broken hours" during the days or nights that sometimes it interferes with the painting flow or inspiration process XD
I guess as a freelancer, time management is an important task to learn in order to make the most use of the time and produce the optimal results in a timely manner. Now back to work again =P

Holiday Paintings

It's getting cold and snowy at where I live (North of Toronto, lots of snow already in November) So I decided to do some holiday pain...
