Down and Dirty

Time to get down and dirty, back to the nitty-gritty, and other last generation cliches….

Wasn’t my art supposed to be about healing?

As I rush around producing merchandise for shows, and feel the angst of the approach of another Christmas Rush in retail….

Something stopped me, and told me to get back to my priorities.

I’ve been saying an affirmation in the morning that compassion and love will guide me, and that I be in alignment with the flow of life.

So maybe it’s time to do affirmations that my artwork is also in alignment with compassion and healing.  So, I will start….in addition to my charity donations.  So, I’m starting another leg of the journey.

Oh, and yes, no holiday drawings yet….but here’s some of my best spring/summer art to bring back good memories….as we approach the winter solstice.

That’s enough for now.  Stay warm.

Happy Freaking Holidays!

As I promised, as last year, I will not post any holiday images until after December 1st.

However, my life is about the holidays already.  I’m going to be doing an art and craft fair in Danbury, Connecticut on December 6.  Among other things, I plan to be selling some handmade Christmas cards….and making some to send to the special people in my life.  I’m still at my day job, which I quit, at last count, three times already.  We’re gearing up for the holiday rush, there.  I will be one of those unfortunate retail workers who will be working Thanksgiving Day.

So, to keep everyone cheery on this cold,late autumn day: A blast from the past.  Happy Summer Memories to all!

It was a dark and stormy day…

Typical November day here…gray, rainy, brown leaves….a totally depressing mess.  Around the corner lurks the (gasp) winter holidays…which some love, some hate,  depending on your life and/or disposition.  Or your job….hello to my fellow retail workers!

So, no wonder I had to make peace with November.

Having left my day job in an ambulance, no less (I really like to go in style), I have lessened my schedule.  Listen, I love doing my artwork, but I need something to break it up…and hopefully find inspiration for the next drawing.

So, here is: Making Peace with November:

novemberSo, see you during the Christmas rush!  I’ll be the one wearing a rhinestone wreath and hawking olive oil….once again.

Life is a badly written soap opera

Did I use that title before?  I think I either used it, or something similar.  Anyway, I guess repeating yourself comes with age.  So, if I did, my apologies.

The soap opera has been at my day job….yes, I’m still there, filling in while the manager takes vacation time.  Intrigues and plot twists galore….only not all that interesting.  Like a bad soap opera.

So, I’ve been away from my artwork due to lack of time.  I’m getting back into it, and as promised, I’m working on “Making Peace with Novemeber”  Here’s the sketch.

Seems like it needs a color punch up of some sort.  Stay tuned for the next episode…or not.
