Scattershot update. Seems I got a Daily Deviation since I last logged on. Hey, thanks! It's for one of my favorite recent paintings, too. I love it when my commissions turn out so well. Thank you =ElindielForestStar and ^deshrubber. And thank all of you so much for the comments and favs.
Things are busy and I want to respond to everyone who took the time to comment. I really appreciate it when people comment on my work and I want to take my time to go look at their work in turn because, hey, they seem to have good taste.
Anyway, it may take me a while to get back to you but I WILL get back to you. Thank you in advance for your time and patience.
Meanwhile, I'm hanging in and still digging the full-time artist gig. I'm less stressed about the everyday hurdle of making rent but it's still a challenge coping with uncertainty. And yet and yet: I love doing what I do.
You know how there are loads of sayings out there that claim if you love what you do to earn a living, life becomes a constant vacation? I think it goes all the way back to Confucius: "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."
Yeah, right. I suspect that's a myth. I will expand on this thought further.
But first I'm going to do some field research and take an honest-to-goodness on-a-plane-to-somewhere-secluded vacation for a few weeks. I'll let you know how it compares.
