The dreaded first post; a time of awkward introduction and a nervous 'hello'- is there any real way to say it easier than 'here I am, this is who I am, read on (or not)!"?
Maybe so, but I'm not nearly so eloquent with words. I've always relied on the visual to convey my ideas, and so to an extent, that is what this blog is about. I'm a visual artist, but at heart and by trade... art is how I earn my bread and how I soothe my soul. It is wonderful, enriching, enlightening, frustrating, messy, never-quite-right. Nonetheless, here it is, and here I am!
I try to hover between two worlds; I take pride in the work I do and I think that some of it can hold its own, whatever that is supposed to mean. However I know I am still just an infant in the art world and the things I have yet to learn greatly outnumber the things I know. I am constantly seeking to improve and am stumbling along as I do. I also have a sense of humor- I never quite take myself seriously, and I get a good laugh out of the ugly, messy, goofy things I've painted (and will paint). And as such I am always open to constructive critique should anyone desire to give it. Most of the time when I post art I am ready to be done with it; so while I may not correct things that are pointed out, I am still learning from those mistakes.
So, welcome! I hope you enjoy what you see here, and I'm honored my words and art have caught your eye even if only for a moment in the vast sea of the internet. The fact that you are here is a great honor to me.
