This new layout confuses and frightens me.

Consider this mostly a placeholder as I test out just how well photos from my phone look.

Something about painting cows is really calming. I don't have a particular affinity for cows but I do really like to paint them. I wonder what's up with that?

Longhorn with Bluebells
I got this photo from a fellow painting student at a local studio. It was really pretty, but it was taken with an older smartphone and when I printed it out a lot of the details were pretty fuzzy. That's why I was particularly loose with this one. As much as I like being loose I really need to work on making my details more...detailed. Guess I've learned my lesson and I won't be painting from an iPhone anymore.

Oil on canvas. The original is 11"by14"

After finishing this one up I've thought long and hard about starting a series of portraits of common songbirds. I've a got a Blue Jay in the works currently. I hope he's as fun as this guy was to paint!

So hey I guess it's time for my once a year journal entry in which I inform you all nothing has changed, my artwork hasn't gotten any better, and I'm still a massive loser. Only more so these days I guess because I'm 30 now and everyone knows if you're not in your teens or twenties you're not worth a damn.

Despite all this I am still painting with the hopes that I'll sell them. Stupid I know, it hasn't worked before and yet here I am still plugging away at it. That's the definition of insanity isn't it? Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results? I guess this is me admitting insanity.

First step to solving a problem is admitting you have one, right?

I'll try to upload some things. I've said that before I know. But I'll still try.

If I fail again and don't update (and you know I will) I hope you all have a lovely year, and I'll see you next year with likely the same message!
