Sleepy Sundays: Fever Pitch

Fever Pitch © 2018 Snapping Turtle Arts

There hasn’t been a piece this abstract in my folders for quite some time. Yes, I dive into the surreal quite often, but this one is different. I’m actually planning on saving this one for a client as a basis for future endeavors in the sci-fi genre.

What makes it so unique to my collections though is the inspiration. The other night I had a very strange, and wildly interesting dream. Observing my surroundings, it appeared I was in some other space and time completely. The entire experience was astounding really. I woke up in awe trying to analyze everything before life slapped me back into reality.

Maybe it’s the process of moving driving me mildly insane. Or just may-be…something else.

Have you stepped out of your comfort zone lately?

Have a dreamy Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Hazy Sunset

This is my first piece in a while that won’t be going out to some client. The details are not a concept in progress or something for a future venture. This is simply a doodle, I guess we can call it. Something I can chalk up as “art therapy” when I look back.

I’m going through as much inner turmoil as that fiery sun. On the outside all may be shining bright. Inwards though, there is a marvelous storm raging.

This place has made a shift. I, have made a shift. You can all feel it.

Usually this is the part where I gather all my things and exit as gracefully as I can.

But I’m not the same person I was ten, or even five years ago.

Although things may seem unclear (hazy), or like they are coming to a close (sunset), I assure you, I’m not going anywhere. No matter how many demons try to suffocate me, I will keep going on.

These “Card Castles” are not fantasies and wishes in my head painted in the sky. They never were. These CardCastles are monuments to those lost, and things that must linger, long after I’m gone.

 

How do you manage stress?

Have a peaceful Sunday!
