Sleepy Sundays: Hazy Sunset

Hazy Sunset
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!

City Springtime in NY

Over the Easter weekend we were all over the place. On Saturday we visited some family in NY. What a glorious spring day it was! I managed to snap some photos of our trip and I have to say these are some of my favorite shots ever taken. Something about the day provided the most spectacular lighting.

I’m sure you’ll see these incorporated into my artwork somehow soon.
