It’s been awhile since I posted any art. I have been busy writing. Not to mention trying to keep up with my four kids. We are starting to gear up for our move back to Los Angeles. Which isn’t easy when you have 4 kids, 2 cats and a lizard. Imagine all the work it takes getting a circus moving. We have really missed the weather and our old friends.. It’s been a cold winter here on the east coast. I hope this will be our last winter. I don’t really need to see snow again. One of the nice things I have been doing is reading again. I’m really trying to make money with my art. It hasn’t been easy.
I’m really thankful for any one that checks out my art. My goal is to send out a positive message. I need to focus on the writing aspect of my blog. I can ramble on. I am working on adding material that will be helpful in people’s lives.
Spent the day doing projects around the house. Trying to fight off this wave of depression. The year is ending and I feel unaccomplished. I need to finish a creative project before the year is over. I’m thankful for the loving support of my family during this time. Would be a lot more depressed. I’m very proud of this piece.
I have never been to a Kip Moore concert. I would love to go but when you have 4 kids you don’t always get to do what you want. I’m working at living cheap this year and making art. His life is inspiring. His lyrics inspire me to do more art work. I want to do a art piece for each song on his album, Up all night. It will push me to do some new work. Can’t wait to tackle the first song tomorrow.
Stressful day. My daughter had a melt down at school. i had to go get her. She was so tired that she fell asleep in the car on the way home.Between being sick and having allergies she hasn’t been getting enough sleep. Plus she doesn’t want to eat anything. So I bought her a beanie boo to make her feel better. She also got to pick out the candy of her choice. She was very happy after that. It was quite a day of adulting.
Another long tough day. I am thinking of giving up my daily posts. I am so tired but I only have another couple of months and I have done a piece for 3 years straight. Need to make it to the end., Then I will decide what I will do.
Took care of all four kids tonight since the wife is at work. The wind is really howling outside. the painting over the fireplace mantle is rattling. It’s been a long day. Earlier I helped my dad put in a new front door at his place. Will be ready for bed tonight.
Kids had a snow day today. Threw a monkey wrench into the whole day. I was trying to finishing writing the kids book I’m working on. When I was into the third rewrite I notice a little detail I added. This changed the whole story once again. The best part is it made it awesome. It now is a much better story. I have to tweek a few words here and there but very happy now. Used up a lot of creative energy today. It felt good. Starting to feel better about my writing. The poor kids are hoping for another snow day. Its not going to happen. I did spend some some quality time with them today. Which at the end of the day makes me feel good. Need to go to bed I can hear the wife already snoring.
Sunday is family day. I am always lucky to get a drawing done. I usually don’t set an alarm clock to get up but tomorrow I am going to need it. WE have a been fighting colds. I am happy to have work coming up soon. The wife is working. Even if out is only part time. I came very close to finishing my rewrite of the kids book I have been working on. Very happy. Need to twerk a couple of pages than I can lock it. Next step plotting out the art work. Very excited to finish my first kids book. It deals with bullying. I hope it can make a difference in kids lives. Ok need to hit the hay. Keep loving. It’s the strongest weapon against hate.
In four months I will be married 23 years. It seems like only yesterday. I still want to chase her around the room but all those kids we have get in the way now. I can’t imagine a life without her. She still annoys me. I love to bug her. We have made some beautiful children. I can’t imagine this world without them. Every single day I love seeing their smiles. Today has been a long day. I am very tired. My throat hurts. I think I’m a little sick. Need to get to sleep but I am waiting for my wife to come back to the bedroom. Need a little snuggle time before bed.
Haven’t been feeling that great lately. I am grateful for a family that puts up with me. I thought about this piece for a couple of days. I think it came out pretty good. The last couple of nights I haven’t had the time to tackle this piece. With the kids home from school today I had a little more time in my day. No running around to schools. Having four kids will run you ragged. I pray everyone has more love in their life this year.
