Snow is here! As a child this was a special day. As an adult — ack, this means snow shovelling, white knuckle driving and walking the trails with ice grips on my boots and counting the days until winter is over. An attitude adjustment is required.
Life gets in the way of enjoying life. I’m a certified pessimist, so of course my thinking is; if all is going well then surely it can’t last. As expected my pessimism is vindicated by Life. Time to wallow in self-pity, it feels so good! I’m kidding, I think?
Time to take time to discuss what I did this time in the past. Time is linear so they say, or is it? I’m no expert and explaining it but I am an expert at experiencing it.
Me, me, me .. why a blog? It’s all about me. Why write, why draw, why paint, because its all about me. Did I mention this about me? Go ahead, I dare you to read about me, or not!
Junk, it’s all junk! It was required and desired in the beginning … but now it is just junk. Why is it still there? Too many things that serve no purpose. Make an effort and clean it up, or not.
When I discover new drawing or painting techniques I tend to exploit myself. More often than not this sends a work to the trash can.
