Happy First Day of Spring!It has been a rough few weeks from pre-blizzard to now being empty of energy so bad it was like having the flu without the symptoms. I call it the Sofa Marathon. I won. Barely. Gradually the days brought me more strength to realize it has been over two weeks dealing with it. Last night the dark chocolate bar unopened on the kitchen counter, out there in the open for almost two days, created one of those moments when I wonder if this is what being dead is like...wondering if it happened without my knowing until just then because a chocolate bar unopened doesn't happen in my life time. When a person becomes older, close to 70 years +/-, I think preparation for the end of life thoughts, run in the background. Clearing out junk and shredding old papers is the new hobby du jour.
Leaving finish artwork instead of in progress becomes more important. Dealing with depression interrupts the pace I believe in as reasonable. Thus, it takes imagination to find ways to build the momentum to create finished paintings. Aha! Blogging is fairly consistent. Why not try a blog that's for artwork only? Good idea? Sure. It is a good idea, like the painted banner I bogged myself down with so far it has yet to be done. The projects build up, and there is no shredder solution. Editing photographs is a way of soothing disappointment. I think artists need to see images they feel good about, inspire them, provide a sense of value. The photograph posted here does that for me.
