Iris and the Future

This is a watercolor piece I actually did back in the summer. I sold in on my Etsy last month to someone up in Seattle. It excites me how people from all over have found my work and are enjoying it enough to buy a piece :)

Moved into my new place in October and only now do I feel like I'm finally settling in. Sorta.
My life is constantly changing. New beginnings seem to be happening on a regular basis... I wonder when I'll finally settle.

My mind is thinking in different ways, which is surprising me. My approach to everything around me is handled in such a way... I can explain, just yet.
I discovered tumblr a while back and the way it's 'blogs' are laid out seem to work better with my thought processes lately. I feel like I can connect better, as well.

A teaser's been posted but, I'll be officially leaving this Blogger and launching myself through tumblr in the new year.

I hope we can connect there.

Dead and Empty.

So I'm moved into my new place but not much to show for it yet. No furniture, not even a bed yet. :/ Getting there. A few more weeks I expect to be settled in and back to a pattern. 2011 I'm changing face. new image, new art, new goodies. I truly hope I stick to things this time. There's no excuse not too. In the mean time, I still do some contributing over at HILIFELIVIN.COM and Tweet up a storm, mostly art bullshit.

Oh, above image is my Halloween costume. Like?

Show Time.

I actually started this piece weeks ago but an ink spill caused me to have to restart.
I started over yesterday and have it about to where I left on on the last. This is the one I'm gearing to submit to TaTa Gala. If I get it done fairly soon I'll probably attempt to submit a couple more works. We'll see what time allows. So Much More Rendering!! D:

I just bought a bunch of neon colored paint for a collection of work that has been building in my head for the last few months. Once I get this show work out of the way I'll have something to show off.

These Intimacies

Works In Progress

Distractions and New Directions

Story of my life.

Been nothing but confusion and doubt since I had to leave CCAD.
I had a solid plan, a pattern.
I feel like I'm back at the begin yet, a little worse off.

The attempt now is to force the results on my own.

I'm exhausted by all this time wasted.

The Broken Promises.

Oh I'm working on things alright.
Currently hating this digital camera and the way my computer has been behaving lately.

My focus right now is to not think.

Seriously. I've realized that I think too much and that's what's distracting me from creating the way I used to.
I want to loose my mind.

I realized that I spend most of my time in transit. Hours a day, hours a week. I'm sure days worth through out the months and years. Spending time moving from one place to another.

A to B.

Walking. Everywhere.
To do laundry. To go to 7-11.
Walking to bus stops. Waiting for buses. Riding buses.
Waiting for rides.
To Work. To A Friend's. To go out to eat.
Across the country.
Waiting in the airport. Waiting for takeoff clearance. Hours in the air.

I don't know the math but, I believe I spend more than average amounts of my days/most of my life moving around. In transit.

I'd like to spend less of my life constantly moving/waiting/wasting.

Yet, nothing has come into my life to make me feel comfortable enough to settle.
At least it's been a while.

Twigs and Dirt.

I miss drawing from life in a classroom setting. Drawing from photos doesn't cut it.
I also do not like using conte pencils on this paper.

Swirls and Women.

Women are highly sensitive and moody creature. No matter how rough and stable of an impression they give off, they are still just women. Insecurities are something we all have in common. They might varry in subject or degree but, for the most part, all of us have some kind of insecurity. Image, career path, dating, habits....
I vented with a friend the other night about my recent anxiousness about my art and having left CCAD and attempting ASU in the fall. I'm eager to start back schooling but, it still doesn't seem right. Something is off....
My friend didn't say much in response but, a simple few words. Sometimes that's all we need to calm the mind.
Sometimes the ear from a certain person can subdue mental stress.

We still have insecurities and no matter what forces from the outside try and assist with them, it truly all comes down to yourself. Taking command of your own mind and making yourself who you want to truly be.
