Emerging from a Black Hole

Black-HoleIt feels like I am emerging from something like a black hole.  For the past month or more, I have been bogged down with several things that have interfered with my creative artistic endeavors.  I can’t even begin to express how much I’ve missed spending time in my studio creating new paintings and drawings, and living mostly in the right side of my brain.    😀

Basically, I have been parked on the couch in front of my laptop working almost every waking moment of every day and night for weeks and weeks, living on soup and crackers, and keeping some pretty weird hours.  I’ve even been avoiding Facebook!  THAT’s how busy I’ve been!

Our web server got pretty badly hacked in early February, breaking three of our websites, and I had to spend over a week cleaning up and fixing the fallout from that (Grrr!).  On the plus side, I created a new website for a client (Yeah!) and another new website design for a family member’s project.  I also spent at least a couple of weeks working on three new web design sites for an interconnected set of web design businesses (which I hope to unveil within the next month).

I almost never get sick, but for most of the past two weeks I’ve been sick with allergy-related illnesses (feeling mostly better now, thank you!).  Finally, while trying to recover from my allergies, I got a wild hair and decided to redesign this website.

Here, at least, is the result of some of my geeky efforts—another redesign of this site.   I have been moving toward more subdued colors in website designs (especially for artists!), and I think even my colorful work might look better against a more neutral background than before.  If you’d like to read more about the changes made in this latest redesign, check out my About This Site page.

Anyway, I hope you like the new design.  Plus, look forward to more art coming from me soon!

I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.
