Hi! It’s cold. My computer is warm, so I’m sitting here working, and I thought I’d post.
There’s some stuff I wanted to talk about, but I didn’t want to get into it early in the game. I have been a hit or miss blogger for years. I wanted to make sure it was sticking this time. It’s still early, but I think as things are going, I’m doing okay. If you’ll indulge me just a bit now and again, I may talk about this business of art, and really, all the chaos that comes with both loss of art and rebuilding, or moving in new directions. I’d also like to discuss process, ideas, and of course, always share art.
This has been getting sixty or seventy hits a day now, so I thought it might be kind of neat to engage in some conversation. I’m not so great at that in real life, and obviously not here either, but I’m willing to try!
Here’s today’s piece. It’s a photo that’s been manipulated and tortured into a painterly submission. I’m not entirely sure why I’m so set on figuring out how to make a photograph look like a real painting, but I’ve become somewhat obsessive about the whole thing. Those of you that have written or commented, thank you so much, I appreciate the feedback more than you will ever know. It’s scary starting over. Seriously, scary.
Have a happy and safe weekend!
