the sun punched the moon the stars tried to crush me a rainbow tried to hide you the sea tried to swallow me For they were jealous of the love you showed me
Still working on finding an audience for my art. The art may seem simple and silly. I’m trying to make a powerful message easier to swallow. I want people to think back to a time when love wasn’t complicated. When I was a kid loved seemed so simple to me. It was easy for me to communicate my thoughts. As I got older I made love more complex. I tried making it conform to a whole set of rules. I became very unhappy. When I let all that go love snuck up on me. Love needs to be talked about more. We need to spend time each day thinking how we can be more loving. My hope is my art will help start some discussions.
I don’t mean to get all Romeo and Juliet on you but I die every time you leave
Was a tough tough day. It felt like my brain was on fire. It was so bad I almost threw up a bunch of times. I was cranky most of the day. I did veg out on Sword art online. Loved it. It’s really cold today. The kids kept coming in and all day from making snowmen. It was the first snow of the season and they got a little crazy. I wish I could have enjoyed the day with them. I have to go buy another heater for the house. Most of the snow may melt but afternoon. Told the wife that the kids will have a delay going to school on Monday. I can feel it in my bones. School delays mess up are whole day. Ok need to go lay down.
Since I met you my heart has been full of rainbows, unicorns and sunshine.
It’s hard to work in a trailer that is bouncing all around. The kids are going crazy. I admit this is my fault. I bought them a 100 emoji balloons. They have blown up a bunch and are chasing them up and down the trailer. I’m trying to paint small little lines. Despite the tough week I’m having my art has been focused on fun. the piece is a little on the silly side. It took me awhile to learn how to draw a horse head. I didn’t they were very good but the kids loved them. Our youngest has been going to the potty. Which is a blessing. The downside to this is all the accidents. He has pooped in his pants twice today. He’ll get the hang off it soon. Ok need to get to bed. My boss said today if I don’t finish the job I’m on in a week I’m fired.
I grew up on video games. In fact there was no video games until I was about 8 years old. Yes I am old. I loved playing video games so much that I stole money from my Dad’s wallet. I got in a lot of trouble for that. I lived and breathed video games. I would beg for change outside the arcade. It was a much simpler time. I would get a couple of bucks each day. I could makes those quarters last. I was thinking about the game Defender when I did this piece. I wanted to try not using all black background. I will have to try a piece with a black background to see which one I like better. I keep experimenting with my art. I think its the only way to find those incredible pieces. Ryan Adams was talking about writing a song on the piano today. He said he like the piece he did but the song he was looking for was 10 more deep. We have to keep experimenting. It’s never easy to bare your soul. Though if you want to make true art one must reach into the places we are scared to show.
It’s cool everyone is time traveling but I just want to hang out with you on the couch
I could see myself saying this. I think about hanging out with my wife more than anything. It was a tough day at work. I installed a set of stairs. We got it roughed in. Tomorrow we will have to finish. I wasn’t feeling well this morning. Everyone around me is getting sick. I hope that I don’t get it. If you had to chose between time travel or hanging with your true love for the rest of your life what would you do. It’s an easy one for me. I would choose my wife than tease her about time traveling the rest of our days.
Feeling silly today. The kids had a 2 hour school delay. It caused chaos across my how schedule. Was out of sync all day. I still haven’t found my coffee thermos. It’s going to be a rough day tomorrow without my coffee. I need to get my act together. Haven’t ordered any Christmas presents. Yesterday I spent most of the day designing my kids book. Working out the color scheme. It felt good. Got a little blogged down after 6 hours of drawing characters. So I went over to my Dad’s house. Watched a little of Museum mysteries. Need to buckle down and get that book done.
Working on showing the steps I use to make a piece. Below is the finished piece.
Trudge, trudge there never was because love made it so
I try not to post to much on Sunday its family fun day. We went to the dollar tree. Each kid got 2 dollars. Today’s haul was art supplies, toy axe, and candy. I let the kids pick out whatever they want. They go in wanting candy and half the time come out with coloring books. They help me get my smile back. Ok back to hanging out with the kids.
Every one of these broken hearts helped me find love.
Tonight we went to a company party for my wife. She hates getting up in public. She had to get up twice. I loved every minute of it. It was an early Christmas present for me. It’s been a long day. I helped my dad earlier working on fixing up his condo. He is trying to sell it. We ended up meeting a couple when they came by for a showing. I think they are going to put a bid in. It would make a nice present for my dad selling that condo. He is tired of paying taxes on a property he never goes to. I’m going to lay in bed and veg out on a movie. Have a good night everyone.
