What a strange week. Has it been a week already? After the tragedy in Las Vegas, Tom Petty died and you're probably thinking that's why I named this week's blog 'Full Moon Fever'. I assure you that is a coincidence....I am referring to the effect this past week's Harvest full moon had on me. Two days of feeling really depressed, coincidentally during the two nights of the full impact moon, made me question if it was coincidence.
I am better now. I think...Creatively, it threw me off my game and I didn't accomplish much. I am trying to make up for lost time but the hours spent on the newest piece seem to be increasing. Without fail, every September, October, all I want to do is paint Jack O' Lantern headed characters and living in Williamsburg produced some new inspiration for yet another Jack O' Lantern guy. My goal is to complete it, along with the other two Halloween themed pieces I started over a year ago, by Halloween. Here's hoping. :) I am aiming to get these completed pieces here onto the website, my Etsy store, (which has been sorely neglected), and my Fine Art America and Red Bubble pages. Wish me luck. :)
Here's also hoping that this new week will find me in a better place emotionally and able to get more done. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I am living the dream, one that I have sought after for many years...to be able to devote all of my time to creating art and marketing it. (along with general living, of course).
But as the full moon reminded me, even Living The Dream has it's almost daily challenges of staying motivated, focused and positive. To the left you will see a detail shot from the newest piece which is still a little ways from being finished but I think it's turning out pretty well. Stay tuned till next week with the anticipation of seeing it done. :)
And to Mr. Tom Petty....R. I. P. ;'( You will be sorely missed.
