the Awakening

I took a really long hiatus from from art...around two years.  I think the last piece I completed was in December of 2012.  Yeah, I suck.

On the plus side.  I'm waking up.  I just finished a painting of my friends daughter which is the first portrait I've ever painted.  So that was a challenge.

Zoe wasn't too crazy about it at first but I think it's grown on her now.  I think she felt a little freaked out by it.

Something else that is helping my creativity is I moved the easel and paintings into the bedroom.  It's working out well.  Just aggravates the hell out of me that I didn't think of it two years ago.  It's nice to wake up in the middle of the night, see my painting and if anything is bugging me about it I can fix it immediately instead of waiting until the next morning when I more than likely wont remember it.

I'm also working on three new ones at the moment.  These are from my imagination which is where I'm most comfortable.  I've had a lot of ideas bouncing around in my head during my slumber and they caused my style to change...I hope for the better.

The December Art Walk is coming up pretty quick and I'm looking forward to showing.  This will be the first time every piece of mine will be brand new and never before seen.  It will also be an unveiling.

Today is my day off and most of it has been tied up with running errands.  It's getting to the sweet spot of the day.  Twilight is approaching, the Cicadas are singing, a far away train is blowing, the temperature is dropping, the comforting dark is coming, and my paints are calling
