Deconstructing an Art Career

Spent a long productive day in the studio back at the big, looming racing canvas. I've dabbled at those runners on and off while I attend to neglected...stuff. Who knew that would take days? And there's always bookkeeping beckoning me like a deranged foreigner with arm outstretched and finger curling. I'm waiting for art supplies that are back ordered. Back ordered? Are we artists spending that much again already?

There won't be too many of these big racing canvases for awhile. I'm stepping out into uncharted territory to try new creative endeavors. So long for now, luvs.

Did you hear that noisy clanging and crashing sound? That's just my dreams being shaken up good and tossed out in disordered, tumultuous patterns. Thank you trepidation.

Sounds pretty finite but you are an artist through and through.
We, your fans, will let you take a break for something else, but fully expect to read/see blog entries when you're ready.

You got that?!!

Well, this post sure set off a rash of phone calls and personal e-mails.

Until horse racing decides to fix itself, I'm taking a bit of a hiatus to explore other things. The Lexington trip was eye-opening as I found myself unknowingly acting as a sounding board for unhappy fans.

I'm excited to traverse new possibilities but I must say: it's like leaving a long relationship when you're still madly in love.
