A New Chapter

The book that has sat by my desk for nearly twenty years.  My anatomical guided me through gross anatomy and sixteen years of medical illustration.

But, I've had a change of heart.

So when I serendipitously stumbled upon the book below at a recent estate sale I took it as a sign.

It's time for a new chapter.

To spend more time in "the studio."  In front of an easel rather than a computer.  Working for myself rather than for a paycheck.  An opportunity to be more creative.

And to spend more time enjoying the "home arts."  

After all, Mischief and Mayhem are my most important clients.  And likely my most difficult ones as likely fewer blog posts as I navigate this new "industry."

No, you must share this anatomical find! I have quite a few in my library but always lust after new ones.

Carol, the atlas can be found below..

The old book chronicles artists over throughout time....I was attracted to the wear and patina of the binding....and the title of course ha

What are some of your favorites from your library?

Couldn't be more proud of you, and so excited to see where this new chapter leads.
A fan of you,

A wonderful decision but check in from time to time, please!

So excited for you Jennifer! Can't wait it see what you create when you have more time. What you have been doing with NO time has been incredible.

Good for you, Jennifer! I'm thrilled you are taking this next step in your life. I haven't regretted for once my choice to give up a steady paycheck for more time to paint - although I somehow find myself with more on my plate than ever and sometimes I have to discipline myself to just pick up a brush. I hope that you will pop in from time to time and let us know how it's going, and that you will keep in touch.

Congratulations! XOXO

Jennifer C. Webb said...

Thanks y'all. Excited but a little myself some time with the girls before hacking a plan for the future. Then full steam ahead!

Jeane: have thought about you and Patricia a good bit the past few months and your courageous leaps into living a creative life

Lissy Parker said...

Congratulations! You will never regret it. I considered my son my job-they are only little once. Now mine is in college and I have tons of time. Paint your little heart out-but let us know how you are.
Xo, Lissy

Congratulations for taking the first step "In the studio" and garnering a game plan to set up a plan to reach your goals of spending time painting while caring for your children, your home and husband. It is one of the most rewarding things you will ever ever do.
Keep a journal. Progress makes perfect. Do what you love. Find joy daily.....doing what you want In and out of the studio.

Woodside Park said...

Congratulations and wishing you the very best, Jennifer! I opened Tone on Tone almost 10 years ago, and left a solid corporate j-o-b. Would do it all over again. Take care, and stay in touch :)

Jennifer C. Webb said...

Thanks Patricia, I'll be checking into your blog for Monday Motivation every week!

Loi: I had no idea, so thankful you left the corporate world...Tone on Tone such a success and inspiration to all.

Mr Paul said...

How exciting Jennifer, can't wait to see where your new chapter will take you. What new paths will the studio open? Paul.

Jennifer C. Webb said...

Thanks Paul. So much I want to try...trying to channel all that inspires me into art. Have been stock piling mediums and surfaces...can't wait to get started and see where this leads

Jennifer C. Webb said...

Thanks Lucy! Starving artist at 40...with roots showing, I just need to make enough to have my hair highlighted.
