I'll be "off" of site and "not" of mind for a few weeks. Taking a much needed and advanced planned trip with my daughetrs. So I will not be operating the webstore (not that any sales have been made).

Tried to make some extra money by selling my art off of the site at our yard sale here at my house. Big fail. Upon my return, I will be putting everything on sale, slashing prices and praying to the bargain gods that I can make some money.

I'll try and update the gallery a bit and so on before I go.

Also upon my return, I'll be hitting the ground running with new projects, finishing projects and applying to expeditions and the like, as well as slowly work on my book.

Until then.......(something clever here).

As I roll through, organize and recalculate real world stuff-I continue to plan on getting several projects off the ground, restarted or continued (some of which are personal and vital to my personal growth and progress).

I have too many ideas for series' of art, but I'm slowly setting up to get 3 (yes 3) different series going....well, possibly 4.

2 have been in the works since I started this studio out of my Mom's basement (according to her I own most of the basement with the help of my past checks aiding in the house getting paid off. That happened in 2013, a few months before the floods.....which the house survived). One is literal to the studio....each piece containing a broken crown. The other involves ice the subject, not as the medium. Mom's Basement Studios was a concept for my art studios name. Fun fact.

2 are fairly new. I'll show an example of each through pictures.

Mash up of animals, spirituality, etc. This is just one version of an elephant. Sparked by a visit to Meow Wolf as well as part of therapy getting through my first year of being divorced, so some pieces might never be seen.

Concept/idea I have actually had for an extremely long time. Tons of ideas through out those years. Different styles, poses, etc. Various themes, moods, etc.

As I typed the above, I got 3 more ideas......multi-tasking brain.

I realize I have a long road ahead of me. Building what I can with social media, word of mouth, etc. But I am stoked and optimistic to what's to come. More will be posted in the gallery, and the like. But first, there is a toilet that needs to be cleaned.

So, my silent auction was a HUGE failure!!!!! No bids at all and any of the bundles. But I did get the usual lectures and delayed advice like "you should.....", "have you.....", etc.

I guess there is nothing left for me to do but just give up, pack it in, surrender and skip to the part of my life where I become that weird guy you see on the street!

You know the kind.....the kind that talks to fire hydrants, wears layers of mismatched clothes, judges people on how they walk by holding up score cards, attacks busses with a pool noodle and drinks juice boxes in small brown bags!

F#@& THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm putting items back on my webstore, continue working on what I can while I hopefully start working a real job soon. I'll continue being available for commission work, doing art for the pure joy, and self-therapy. It's what I did before anyway.

So, I'll put my pool noodle in storage.....for now!

Until another time.....
