I try not to be a sentimental person but sometimes sentimentalism has a way of just taking over. I've even been called 'a sappy b@#$%' on one occasion. I couldn't help but laugh true as it is. The idea for this painting came about during a somewhat maudlin moment. Sometimes a friend can help you get through a moment without knowing how much they've done. The inspiration came from Kissy who has a few links of her own to contend with.

A week or so after I started this painting I lost my birds. I plan on doing a painting of them eventually but I decided to somewhat paint them into this as well. It felt right and it also completed the painting.

I also had friends comment about me going back to my old style and while it does look like the old stuff it feels different for me. Maybe because I feel like I'm not just 'creating' anymore. It's starting to feel as if I'm putting pieces of myself down on canvas.

I don't think that's such a bad thing at all.

The River Nymph

It seems like a long time has passed since I updated this blog. I've been working on stuff here and there but I haven't been rushing myself like I used to. This piece was created for the eventual Cafepress account. I say eventual because the urgency to get lots of work online has left me and now instead I suppose it's just plain old laziness.

A reflection


One day while cleaning I happened to look through one of my old sketchbooks. I had quite a few unfinished ballpoint pen drawings. Half of the drawings/paintings I have ever done are probably unfinished simply because I lost interest or I got lazy. I dared myself to do a complete drawing. It took me a few days but I finally finished.

* - Note on Reflection along with previous and future pieces. I've had some people tell me my work is definitely sexual. And even blatantly BDSM themed. Okay, so maybe it is that. But when I'm creating or looking over these I don't really see sex. It is merely a representation of my state of being. A naked woman or two is just thrown in to make it a bit more aesthetically pleasing. ;)
