Brush with the Past

12/09/09

For the first time in a long time I got my paintbrush out today.

I have had mixed feelings about Art and what I have to offer. With the dismal performance of this years Affordable Art Show I felt disassociated with the whole ordeal of this thing called Art. I didn’t want anything more to do with it.

The last week though has opened my eyes to my gifts and abilities in this area, and I realized I need to keep pursuing Art – not for the recognition of others, but for myself. I needed an outlet for the stress.

With Spring coming, I felt no better time than to get out there and create again. I’ve got the beginnings for one new piece, and I have all but edged one I started back in May/June.

It was good to have the brush out again and doing what I love.

Poked

Today we had a lazy day at Vicky’s. The sun was out for Father’s day and with festivities planned in the afternoon, the outdoor furniture was out and lent itself brilliantly to a game of Poker with Vicky and William.

Good times.
