So it's July, weather is getting hotter. Brother is living with us, not sure how long that will last. Prepping for a Print show in OKC this fall. The image above is of a wood burning relief for that exact show. I'll let you know how its going next month. Busy, busy, busy.

So I've been going in and out of a depression for the past few years. I feel that things are starting to look up, not only for myself but also for my wife. We are considering moving out of state for new opportunities. I feel inspired to create again. Life is still just as confusing and stressful, but just with more bright looking outcomes. Hope this is the end of a long running depression and the beginning of my new life. Plans for living, laughing, loving, and nurturing all including myself. If you ever feel down, don't hesitate to ask for help.

the first day in April and all the plants are budding out. Things I enjoy and appreciate this time of year is the robins singing, new plants popping up, springtime showers, and the thought that summer is coming up next.
Been really depressed about life for the past 3 months. Down about life in general, don't have much in the way of faith, and my confidence in myself is way low. I wish I had more to offer, but I don't. I'm not completely hurting financially, but I just don't have much to allow me to give back or go where I need to. I'm not able to provide for my spouse like I would like to. I wish I was doing what I love which is being creative and helping others. Because of my lack to make a better paycheck we are selling our home to move to something smaller. Although I won't missing cleaning it, the house is a one of kind gem. I will miss it.

Blah, be back tomorrow.
So February, here we are again. The shortest month of the year. January was a tough month to make it through, but it's over and we are headed in a better direction. Have had very little time for art. Need to get motivated. This painting is of a fantasy creature, a mixture of a giraffe and a hyena. No real reason for it other than I'm crazy in the head like that. My art is funny I think. It really has no place other than in my head. I don't know who would like it and why they would. It's a compulsion to get it out and on a tangible surface so I can reflect on it. Each piece than has a story in my head for where is been and come from. I imagine what it would be like to meet or see in person. My mind is a funny place to be, very quiet, but full of emotions and theories. One day it will all make cents. One day it will all disappear. One day it will all make sense.

So it's a new moon, if you didn't know the last time this event occurred was 19 years ago in 1995. This illustration above is my current obsession, ink wash that is. Really enjoy working in this medium and look forward to expanding my knowledge of it. Who knows where or what I will do with it though. My other crush would be anything rebellious theme or nature.
I'm lost at this time in my life. I'll be 30 this year, and like so many of my other brothers and sisters I feel dissatisfied with life. Hope to put my house on the market. Hope to find a new house. Hope to find some answers about adoption. Hope to start a career. Hope learn more this year. Hope to become stronger. Hope to bring happiness to those I love. Hope to help those less fortunate than I. Hope to be healthy. Hope to have another wonderful year with my family and friends.
