If you’re reading this then you are looking at my brand new website. I welcome you.
As this is my first real blog post (first of many I assume) I wanted to take this moment to thank you for being here. You are taking time out of your day to visit here and I appreciate that. With so many media options out there like live streaming services, as well as YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, etc… you came here. That is awesome.
My intent here in this site, and in these blogs, is to share some of my artwork with you… To communicate with you. A lot of time and energy goes into making this stuff and I hope it either brings you joy, stress relief, or, if not those things, I hope that it at least stirs your mind into some thought process that’s engaging for you.
I deeply love painting and drawing, creating in general really, and with a little luck that love will show through here in this website and in my words via this blog. (By the way “blog” is such a strange word. It seems almost amphibian)
In my final thoughts here in this post, of which I shall not drag out much further, I’d like to share with you a funny quandary. As I write this on my iPad, in my new studio space, I am sitting at my desk upon which sits a computer with two screens, and beyond that stands a large easel adorned with an unfinished painting staring back at me. To share with you, dear reader, I must utilize electronic, digital, devices yet my heart feels analogue. I far prefer to move the brush than to type the word though how will I reach you if I don’t sit and play the digital game of internet communication? It seems the painters of old were both blessed and cursed by not having such a tool to distract from themselves, though I suppose that sometimes the distraction can be a good thing. The epic dance of whether to create or to “get to work out there” plays on.
Good day to you,
