I’m feeling very inspired and quite relieved.

Over the past several months I have received a small handful of emails from people wanting to know when or where they could buy more artomat paintings. It makes me feel good to know that people were actually searching out my artwork specifically, but nervous because I hadn’t settled on what to paint next. I had a couple ideas floating in my head but nothing I felt great about. My heart wasn’t in any of these ideas and so it was very hard to actually get started. I have all my canvases built and covered and gessoed but they just sat there blank, mocking me.

Sunday it finally came to me, I put together several things in my head and it just clicked. It is silly that this idea had not come to me before. I have been filling pages in my sketchbook with concepts and even starting and completing a couple pieces. It feels so great to be working, to be productive and inspired. Obviously, it is a much preferred state compared to the other option, which is guilt that I am not doing anything and constantly looking for inspiration but finding none that speaks to me.

I am excited to share what I have been working on, but need to wait till I am further along and have more of my work completed before then.

Happy, Happy, Happy


Hi, I'm Robyn and I was Hatched from a Kinder Surprise Egg. Graphic Designer by day, Maker of things by night. I have worked as a graphic artist professionally since I was 16 years old. Went on to get my Bachelors of Art from NIU. I like to share my Artwork online at flickr.com/photos/robayre and on my own personal website http://www.robayre.com. I also have an online shop http://www.robayre.etsy.com where you can find more of my "crafty" sorts of things, as well as a random piece of artwork here and there. Oh, and I'm also an occasional contributor to Artomat (artomat.org).
