Warning mini rant ahead…
OK, if I could invent something to make the world a better place for all humanity, it would be instant Midol. I mean instant Midol relief, as in open the package, and it takes effect immediately. A sweet little bubble that you place against the skin and instantly feel better. OI! That or an evolutionary lever or switch that could be thrown manually when you are done with baby-making. I mean I am so done with making babies, so is it totally necessary to go through this every 30 days or so for decades?! Seriously, who thought that was a good idea? Same person that thought up high heels too I bet, its a frekin’ conspiracy. Grrr.
Okay, Too much info I am so sure…on with the art!
I have not been able to paint, because of eye illness for two weeks. Yesterday I still was fuzzy eyed, but getting way better, and I thought…I just gotta paint something, anything. So I came into the studio and sat down, and…BAM! I learned that while my body was resting, I learned how to do the whole gray scale loose style painting I have been trying to master for about six months. Just like that I got it. Far freaking out! It is always like that for me, one day it all clicks and I learn that I DO know how to do that! Needless to say, I was super excited and am now ready to go to town exploring what I can do with this new information. Does any one else out there learn like this? I can’t spend a lot of time practicing things, I have no patience for not getting things right at all. I have to wait until my brain sees enough information to process it, and until I see that I can get a close enough result to spend time on playing around with it…I just won’t do it. Crazy maybe but it seems to be true. My whole journey of learning how to paint has been this way, I can’t learn in an environment where someone wants me to reproduce a skill, I would have never made it in a art school anyway. *grins* So here I am 12 years into my experience and learning this skill, it’s not perfect, but it’s a start! Check it out…lookie what I did!
See! I did it! It’s just a rough sketch done quickly so I wouldn’t think too much, but I like it. Here’s the quote that got me going at first:
“Most people have learned to live in the moment. The argument goes that if the past has uncertain effect on the present, there is no need to dwell on the past. And if the present has little effect on the future, present actions need not be weighed for their consequence. Rather, each act is an island in time, to be judged on its own. … It is a world of impulse. It is a world of sincerity. It is a world in which every word spoken speaks just to that moment, every glance given has only one meaning.”
This whole documenting my path with public blogging gig is pretty cool. I recently spent a little time going through some of the 1035 posts of my progress and it’s really very cool to be able to see clearly where I have been and how far I have come. I really am feeling pretty darn good about me right now. It’s nice.
Here’s some link love for you all to check out till I get back. Go forth and search! 🙂
The New Artist Challenge Show is up, I didn’t get to submit this time because of the whole temporary blindness thing, but you all will be loving it, so stop by and tell them how great it all looks too, they are a vain bunch. *giggles*

A few weeks back I stumbled across this new blog surfer thingy called Condron.us, I included it and let it run for a few weeks to see what it would do and I really am seeing a huge amount of new readers daily, like hundreds. So far I think it’s worth it and I’ve enjoyed using it myself to find new updated blogs to read too. So, I thought you all might like to know bout it. Check it out and good luck!
So, that’s all fom me for now, I hope this finds you all fit and fine in your worlds. Have a great day and thanks for being here today.
