Sweet Panda in Progress

Hello hello,
Another progress shot of my latest painting.

I'm still not quite happy with her overall look and the background. I'll work some more.
I'm also in the middle of cleaning my other desk, where I put some of my fashion magazines, art books, and my drawings. I want to try to sculpt and I need a space. It will be something tiny, perhaps the size of a mini Blythe doll...something simple. I've been doing research for these past three days about which material I should use. I first thought of polymer clay, but then I don't have a toaster to bake it, besides it'll be smelly. So I said nay to polymer clay. Then I read about no bake clay. It sounded nice and easy to work with. I bought the clay, simple tools and an instruction book. We'll see how I like it.
I don't have plan to switch to sculpting at all. It's just something that I've been wanting to try for a while. I'll be good to nourish my artistic spirit for painting ^_^

Oh, we did go to Michael Shapcott's opening last week. It was a nice day. My honey and I went to a Korean restaurant before the opening...yummm. The Gallery itself was located near that restaurant. The opening was really cool. Michael was friendly and we talked for a bit to him before the gallery got more crowded. We also got a chance to meet David Apuzzo, the Gallery owner, and Melissa, Mike's fiancee.
Here are some of the photos from the opening

Now I need to get back cleaning my desk:)
