welcome. day 1... or 13,580...

Transient

Today is the day.

May 1, 2013.

The day I launch this site.

Day 1...

but really, day 13,580...

I have been working towards this day my entire life, maybe before. Sometimes actively, intentionally, other times not so much. Sometimes being pushed here, pulled here despite my silly resistance. Today, excitedly, determinedly...

I am here today, and each day going forward, to claim my art. To return to my art. To connect with and grow with and learn from and give to my art. Yes, all of the above... openly, unabashedly, unapologetically.

As I pondered the initial piece, the inaugural post, the theme the site could take I kept resting upon absolutes. I will only post this... I will only talk about that... I will only paint...

I immediately wanted to set rules, constraints and shut myself down again and again. See that's what I do... Wait, that is what I have done in the past. We can chat more about the above later, or maybe we won't, it's in the past.

For now, as in TODAY, I commit to the following:

5 posts a week of artwork... some current, some past. Some finished, some I am working on. Some fine, some craft. Some solo, some collaborative. Something I have been involved in the creation of, each weekday Monday-Friday...

So, in deciding upon the initial post, the inaugural post, my introduction of sorts I decided to choose a painting in progress. One I have much left to work on still. One in which the female form is naked, exposed, vulnerable as I'll get out. Yet, willing, and open, and bold...

Why? Because this is how I am feeling as an artist, as a person, today.Why? Because that is what this website is all about.

me. in progress. much work remains. female. naked. exposed. vulnerable. willing. open. bold. yes, all that, and so much more...

join me for the journey in 2013 and beyond...
