My [relative] internet silence

I know I've been kind of MIA from this blog, updating my website, etc. Everything is fine here, no worries there! I got a full-time job, which is both less stressful and pays rather better than being a full-time artist. I'm still sculpting and painting! It's just a lot harder to make time to update the blog, re-write stuff for the website, etc. than it used to be. Not to mention that everything seems to happen in the fall! Renaissance festivals, horseback riding for the first time in well over a year, and I finally got my dream car (thanks to working two jobs--the model horses and the day job)--all these things eat up time, and I find that if I pass on these enjoyable things I end up incredibly stressed and no work gets done anyhow. Happy Maggie is much more likely to get stuff done than grumpy Maggie. Don't get me wrong--I love sculpting. I wouldn't do it if I didn't. But it's hard to sit inside sculpting on a cool sunny day when the road and the forest are calling.

Evenings are much easier to work in, and yet they seem so short. I've always worked better at night; too bad I now need to get to bed by about 11:30 if I want to have any hope of being coherent in the morning! Speaking of which...

Will update with photos of recently completed finish work when said photos have been a) taken and b) edited. May be a while.
