Artist's Choice - Best of 2019 by Amy Crook

2020 is here!

It’s been 2019 all year, hasn’t it? But I still made a lot of art, including five Floating Galleries with 9 paintings apiece. Here’s my favorite dozen from the past year!

May 2020 bring us all clarity, compassion, comfort, and joy.

So, what’s in store for 2020?

I’ll be sticking to this every other month schedule for the Floating Gallery, so expect 9 new pieces in March. Ash Ghost now has a short story and just needs a bit more love to become a zine! That and other new work will show up on my Etsy shop. My commissions queue is always pretty full, and I always open it to Patreon supporters first. They also get cat pics, sketches, wallpapers, and other goodies — consider joining us! I’ve also got a new novel and at least 2 short stories coming out in 2020 on Amazon.*

Don’t worry, I’ll do my annual kitties post in a few days. =^~,~^= You can meet the new girl!

For the new decade, I need to pick out a smoother, more productive path for my creative career, and try to find a way to keep myself sustained both financially and personally with significantly less stress. Thanks for all your support!

*I know they’re evil, but they’re also the easiest way for now.
