Eh...Greetings! Hola! Guten tag! Aloha! Shalom! Bonjour!
Okay, I have explaining to do. You see, I've been going about this blog all wrong. I strongly felt I could only put up my art here and not much else. You know, the whole 'being professional' thing. I'm a painting MACHINE! Now problems arose this year due to a sudden influx of freelance work...and all those pesky NDAs that come with them. So I have been painting all this time, but I still can't show you too much of what I've done. Hence the silence.
Anywho, after a lot of reflecting and despairing over the negligence of this beloved blog, I'm back. I'm going to start posting other things besides just my latest piece. Oh, don't worry, I'm not going to be posting about government conspiracies or any of that jazz. But I'll try to make this blog a little more about art in general, not just the desperate pushing of paint and pixels I've been monotonously posting for these past 5 years or whatever it is. I never talked about the shows and cons, or my peers or the masters who have inspired me! So hopefully, this blog will grow in scope, not just as a platform to show off my latest...masterpiece (stop laughing!)....I hope this becomes a place to check out to learn a bit more about art, to have fun, to see what this field is about, etc etc.
This whole thing is still a work in progress, so bear with me. Having been a teacher for 2 semesters now, my thirst to share what I know has grown. So let's see where this blog goes....
Oh but wait! I'm not going to leave you with no artwork, ohhh....no no no no no!!! And just to prove I have a pulse and a life, this is a new collaboration with my lovely artist girlfriend, Christina Skapriwsky.
