Musings of an Artist

  1. Down the Rabbit Hole and Back Agian

    Though I have not been entirely absent from Litnet I have not been here and about as much as usual, and it certainly has been a good long while since my last blog post. I have been a bit busy with this and that, so here are some of the highlights of my life, of what I have been most recently up to.

    Since my gallery experience, of which I have told you about it had helped to refocus my attention back on my artwork again. So I have been creating visually a lot more lately which had
  2. Well you cannot please everyone

    I still have a sort of whimsical attachment to the mushroom, part of this reason is because of my ever
  5. Painting Again

    Finally I have started to paint again, previously for sometime now I have been unable to do so. First because during the time I was in school I did not have any time to paint, and then once I was out of school for the summer (I never take summer classes) I had lost the room that more or less served as my studio as it were, so I had no space in which to paint. The family room dubbed "My Office" because I am really the only one who uses this room and spend most my time here, formally had ...
