As Promised…And Now I’ll Shut Up About It

I kept promising an event at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Danbury, and darned if it wasn’t today.  I was there.  Met a lot of very nice people, gave out some business cards.  I had to take my old New York City business cards and cross out the address, and then write in “Danbury”.  Something very ominous and final about that act.  Even though my night time dreams are mostly set in the Big Apple, my day time reality is really, really gone from there…most probably forever.

By the way, does anyone really know why New York City is called the “Big Apple”?  I’ll be damned if I know.  Once I tried looking it up on the omniscient site Google, and no, Google had conflicting reports and reasons.  So, unless some bolt of lightning strikes with the right answer, I guess I’ll never know.

So, here’s my set up at the show:

Also, in the past week, I had the sad task of drawing a sympathy card for a friend of a friend.  Somehow, it does make a difference to make a drawing sometimes, even if for a bright light in a dark time:

And now, I can start to spend my time going back to the art I want to do.  So, for instance, there’s this remake I wanted to do..remember my Rainbow?  The one I decided was my worst piece of 2015?  I hope to make improvements on it.  I was so decidedly overconfident and cocky while I was drawing it..and you know what they say about pride.

So, here’s the revisit…not sure how I’m going to redo it, but I do know:

I’m going to get small.

Giving Me a Break!

I would have done the worst of 2015 today, but I am feeling less than in good spirits.  It will pass, but in the meantime, I’m going to be good to myself, and pass on posting the bad stuff.  What is meant to be a light hearted, not taking myself to seriously post, is turning into a drudge.  So, I’m giving myself a break.

I did do the still life, “A Box ‘O Bling”, but it’s sketchy because my concentration is worse than normal, while I go through this mood adjustment.  Here it is:

So, I’m going to work small for a while, though I do have big ideas.  So, thanks for all your support in 2015, have a wonderful New Years!  See you next year!

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year….

Unless you work in retail.  So, to all my retail working brothers and sisters in spirit, keep your chin up!  It’ll be over sooner than you know it.

So, as promised, it’s after Thanksgiving, and I’ll rolling out the little Christmas cards I have done.  I’ve got to be careful here, I don’t want anyone to see their card on the blog before they get it in real life.  So, I start with this one, for my brother and his wife who have limited internet access:

So, I’ve had a few distractions at work…..gotta get back to doing these.
