My how time does fly. It has been exactly one year since I last wrote on this blog. Or, for that matter any social media sites that I am a part of, have seen very little of me during the year of 2014. Why? One reason has been my workload; one has been (and this will sound like a lame excuse, but true) that finding the time in 2014, to sit and think, alone and unobstructed by the outside world, has been a very small amount; one has been that I sometimes feel I have very little to say – I don’t want to be that woman that tells you about the bagel she had for breakfast – you know what I’m sayin’!
This is also an art blog, and I suppose I’ve had art worth posting, of my own; but, not much has excited me this past year. I am an artist, once again, in transition. I’m working at being more of a digital artist; however that has been a slower than I’d like process. It seems, ironically, after thinking I’d have to put my paintbrush aside, that I’ve had more call for traditional media art, than digital. Go figure. But even then, I’ve realized that the proverbial “writing is on the wall”.
As I mentioned, the ‘excitement quotient’ has been low – I’ve decided not to make resolutions this new year, as they are sometimes almost impossible to keep (reference my 2014 post). I do, however, have intentions – yeah, I know, “the road to hell …” – I get it. My intent, is passion this year. Something that is often lost, in the day-to-day drudgery; the “trends” (I try to never keep up with the ‘Joneses’, unless I have little choice); the shrill, demanding and whining voices in your ears (“I want it now!”, “I needed it yesterday!”, etc.); and just the hours put into searching for, researching for, and just doing the work.
So, I’m off. Looking for a spark. You will see and hear from me from time to time. Hopefully, much more often than in 2014. I am on a mission.
Excite me, World.
