And hello!

Welcome to my new blog! I finally did it! I hope you will join me on this new blogging adventure :)
If you live anywhere near the central time zone, you will probably notice that I am still awake at 2 AM, but for whatever reason, I find that I am most productive and creative late into the night. When I can, I sleep/nap most of the day and then I love to paint at night. Must be one of those artist/creativity?craziness things! Right now, it's storming outside, which I love- there is something so cozy about being inside when it's raining outside, and then hearing something so powerful in the thunder. And I am watching the I Love Lucy marathon :)
This is actually the episode I'm watching. Love this show. After all these years, it still cracks me up!

So let's have a little bit of getting to know you since this is my new blog----
I love love love anything artsy! Painting is my favorite thing, and I feel God has called me to a life of creativity. I just received my undergrad degree in studio arts, and I will be starting grad school in the fall.
My blog name comes from the idea of "reverie" which I used for my BFA exhibit. I base a lot of my current pieces on this idea of reverie, which I defined in my artist statement like this: The word “reverie” comes from the Old French rêverie meaning “revelry; delirium” and from Middle French resver meaning “to dream; to wander.” The dictionary defines “reverie” as “A state of abstracted musing; daydreaming” or “The condition of being so lost in solitary thought as to be unaware of one's surroundings; an illusory mental image” Within a psychoanalytic perspective, the term reverie refers to “an imaginary representation created to help realize a desire.”
So put that with a word describing a state of color, and tada..... "Shades of Reverie"

I do believe that is all for now. Let me know what you think about my new blog!
