Here’s an update on my small project that I’m working on during my lunch breaks. Day two progress. The main thing for me is to push through and not get bogged down. I have a tendency to over think what ever I’m working on. I either take forever to complete something, or more often I stop in frustration and never revisit it again. This has driven my wife crazy, watching me view a project from all angles, best one is upside down, (the art, not me) for hours, and then quit. So I’m trying to work quickly, for me, and avoid the slowdowns and brain freezes. Having the lunch time time constraints help. What do you think so far?
I am trying to force my self into a pattern of doing something art wise everyday. Started this today during lunch break. Working from a striking photo my son Kyle took. And yes, it’s supposed to angle off the surface! Will post the progress.
Well here we go. I have occasionally thought about doing a blog over the years, I’m sure many of you have too. Honestly, this time I have just rushed into it, deciding to do it. So this will be a work in progress as I figure out what I want to write, post, create here. I plan on writing about some specific themes, themes that are important in my life like art, music, photography, faith, memories, family, friends. I will be looking for feedback from any wayward souls who have stumbled into here by design or accident. I’m purposely avoiding politics with this blog. Why? Because I feel that area is so toxic right now, we could get way off course. I’m not afraid to tell you where I stand politically. In fact let’s get that out of the way once and for all, and move on. I’ve been a registered, voting Republican since the age of 18. I voted republican in every election until 2016. I no longer view things through the same lens as the GOP. I would describe my current leanings as Independent/liberal. So there you have it. Let’s move on.
A little more about me. I’m 57, I make my living as a graphic designer, I’m married with three adult children. I’m a failed artist, we’ll talk about that in later posts. I’m an amateur photographer. I love music, but I’m not a good musician. I have recently had a bout with cancer. We’ll talk about that in a later post. I’m a spiritual traveler, having recently “deconstructed” from my past beliefs. We’ll talk a lot about that. I’m very nostalgic, ask my wife, I drive her crazy with my looking back! I’m hoping for feedback here, and I suspect my thoughts on faith will bring that.
So join me, let’s have some fun!
