I know I know...where have I been... eeeh everywhere but posting.
How are things? I'm not answering that question. You answer that question. I felt like seeing it was spring when I posted something it should fall when I recap. The air is just as chillie. I have been keeping busy with work and life of course.
Plus there was that period of time I had no power charger for my laptop that of which is when I decided to work on a painting I was hired to do. a 3 foot by 2 foot painting..that took me over 2 weeks today..give or take my still amazing talent of laziness.
Plus I was side lined by having to make my own canvas and the treating process for the canvas took sometime. It was my first time making and stretching my own. To say the least it was...interesting. Not that difficult but I am very good at multi-tasking. Though there were times when I wish I had two more hands.
After that project was over there was the reward of getting it off of my desk. It took up space or which I was glad to have back.
Would I do a canvas that big again? Yes, I was exhausted hand painting it, my shoulder hurt from the out reaching strokes but it was worth it I enjoyed the mass. Just next time I want to paint something brilliant for myself.
Of course that will result in more idle standing about thinking or staring or just risking nothing and go forward with it. And yes I know I am not seen as the traditional painter here, but in fact I am. That is where my heart has been since I could pick up a brush. And honestly it felt nice to have that side noticed and wanted..for once. Instead of not.
But ah well I've been on Deviant long enough to know how this place works. 10 years and nothing short of a slap on the wrist of notice. Or praise. I do get frustrated honestly. But that doesn't mean I am ungrateful. I am and I did take a long break from my work because I was sick and distracted. In truth even though my digital work is powerful and amazing it doesn't embodied the passion it once did.
I make work in a dying art..even my latest job has my work being dumbed down.. perhaps I should just be happy for the option of a pay day.. any sort of pay day..
I don't know I started to ramble, sorry about that. Rambling and ranting seems to be a new habit I need to drop quickly.
So what else have I done.. I removed all that carpet from my down stairs...so glad that stuff is gone. My wood floors give away any unwanted visitors to my downstairs. Thankfully they rarely stay..
Thats about it I think I've done more stuff but you don't need to ready a 4 page essay about what I did this summer.
Hard to believe its almost over right?
