Blogging came to be around 1998. I always liked reading what other people wrote and thought was worthy of publishing out into the world. But then Social Media took over and now we are more consumed on that end of things. But I do think blogging is a great way to work out one's thoughts and convey what's going on in people's heads in a way Instagram and other Socials can't quite achieve.
And so, for my first art blog ever and because this is my site, I will confess that I have not painted or even sketched in 4 days now. Why? Because I have been laid flat by a stomach flu of some sort.
All I can do is lay here and think of all the things I should be doing in my studio. Like oiling out a painting I'm currently working on. Getting back to another paining I am also working on. And oh yes, there is one other painting that just needs a little finishing touch to it to call it good.
So instead, I am writing about it which makes me feel just a little better about my present self. What worries me though is that I will be the only one who reads this...
