New York! New York!

Great News! My College Choir will be performing Brahm’s Requiem at Carnegie Hall in New York this May! I’m so excited, I cannot even express how wonderful this opportunity is! During our time there, we will also see Wicked on Broadway (yet another dream come true!) This is proof that God truly listens to our prayers, and gives us our hearts desires. This has been such a constant encouragement for me, even through the roughest of times. Big and wonderful things are happening in my life at the opportune time, just as He has planned! And I know He will continue with these plans in my life. This trip and performance wont be the last big thing I do in my life, but the starter of many big and wonderful things that will happen with God’s help 🙂

So furthermore I would like to apologize for not updating TSOTS lately, but as you can see I have been quite busy lately. I have been especially busy rehearsing Brahm’s Requiem, which is 95 pages and 7 movements of German sheet music. Its definitely a challenge, but a life changing one that I am willing to take on!

We will receive a bit of free time for ourselves to visit restaurants and shops, so I’ve been doing a bit of research online, looking for shops in Manhattan that sell Victorian attire and goods (Because I’m a Victorian Girl at Heart! ❤ ) I know there is bound to be some (or maybe not and I’m just silly 😛 ) But there must be something for everyone in New York! Right?

So if anyone out there knows of a Victorian – type shop  located in Manhattan, please drop me a note in the comments!

p.s. I promise to update my art soon!

thanks,

“Within Each Other we Made a Home” (beginning stage)

Some art in progress, I still have a lot to do on it, but I’m really excited about it. Obviously this piece isn’t going to be realism or stylized realism, its going to be more of a stylized animation. These two characters have quite a story to tell, but I’ll wait to share that until it is complete 🙂 this piece is called “Within Each Other, We made a Home.” — ThissideoftheSea
