If you were a follower of this blog in the past, you may be wondering what happened to all the older stuff. Well, it’s been deleted. I am taking this blog, and my life in a new direction. It is my aim to become a working artist. That would be the opposite of a starving artist, I suppose. Instead of musing about the creative process in general — in which I was boring myself — I will be showcasing my artwork along with the same sort of snarky commentary that my Facebook friends seem to enjoy so much.
So, keep coming back to see the finished art ready for the marketplace, to see art in progress, and to read about the adventures and misadventures surrounding it all. I’ll let you know when I’m going to have an exhibit so you can come see my work in person, and when I’ll be entered in a show or contest, so you can vicariously participate in my successes and help me lick my wounds when those clueless judges do me wrong.
You can participate in my art too. I am planning to let my readers occasionally vote on which direction a piece should take, or what subject matter to tackle next, or even to submit a photo to be considered for subject matter. Because I am not above a little bribery, I am also toying with the idea of giving away some freebies — my art on a T-shirt, perhaps. Of course the best way to participate is to purchase art. There will be opportunity for that too! I have to sell the stuff or I’ll run out of walls to hang it on.
