Just so you know, I’m not dead, lost, imprisoned, or in a mental institute. I just needed a break and lots of ME time. Those that know me think I already have too much ME time, but I don’t think you can ever have enough of it
A blog is a greedy beast that is never satisfied and I just decided to stop feeding her for a few days, which turned into a few weeks. I guess I was angry at Art News Blog for making me feel responsible to her, but we have made up and resolved our issues.
So, things will now be back to normal or as normal as they can be.
While away I have been painting and reading books about painting, which has been great. I went on an art book buying spree at Amazon and spent hundreds of dollars. I created a wish list at Amazon and realized that if I didn’t buy the books for myself, they’re not going to magically appear on my bookshelf one day! I felt guilty after buying so many books at one time, but I loved hearing the delivery van pulling up out the front with more new books for three consecutive days!
Here’s a few of them.. (they’re afilliate links from Amazon as I have to feed my art book addiction somehow!)
The rest are mostly diary/journal/info/bio type books on or by artists like Matisse, Picasso, Cezanne and Mr Damien Hirst.
I bought a mixed CD called Namaste too.. which is great to paint to..
Anyway, that’s my sales spiel for today.
