Cafe Michaelangelo-August 2012

Where is everybody? I suppose you are lying on the beach or taking long inspiring walks...or perhaps the grand tour. You should be in a tiny studio sweating over a drawing or smearing up some meaningful abstracts. OK, I'm not doing much either.

We had some beautiful weather for a little while and now we are back to humidity again. Hard to know what to eat...How about ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Hope to hear from you soon....

Re: Cafe Michaelangelo-August 2012

I hurt my back recently at work while sitting for too long in a wrong chair and am still trying to nurse my injury for 3 months now. My output has really dwindled.

But in the meantime, I've started showing my work in public. Around 30 pieces in the senior center and while it's informal, I have learnt a lot from seeing my work all lined up against the wall and what kind of size, frame and style I need to attract attention. I made a small slideshow here.

http://youtu.be/k4-_u2J9RnY

I've shown it to my colleagues and one painting is pre-sold now, and 2 commissions if I could wing it. Scenery and a dog. Arggh...never drew dogs much.

Here's my slideshow.

http://youtu.be/k4-_u2J9RnY

At the work front, I'm still angling for promotion. I'm worried that I'm so good at my job that they won't let me move up or laterally. A pain in the back exacerbating the real life one.

Re: Cafe Michaelangelo-August 2012

I've been having an art vacation for a few weeks now but I sense its coming to an end as I've got a stack of new ideas I want to work up.

Life had been pretty hectic but is now calming down a bit and I can now face the mess that my studio is in!!

There's nothing worse than waiting in all day for a repair man or delivery and they never show! Drives me mad!!

Re: Cafe Michaelangelo-August 2012

Hi All. Nice to see you back again, Ryan. Are you still experimenting with mixed media?

My repair man came and fixed the sinks. (After I phoned again). So now I am happy. Nothing worse than blocked sinks.

I also loved your video of art, Sandra...a good idea to put them together like that!!
