Okay, I've actually been back from vacation for a few days. It was a convention, actually, in Vegas, so when I wasn't out in the 108° heat (dry, though), I was in meeting halls or breakout rooms, so, other than finally getting out to see Minions, it was all running, sitting, eating, returning, sitting, running...... All good, though. Learned a lot.
I did manage to peek into dA from time to time while I was there (can't stay away), as well as the one or two other sites I frequent, and I really got how much I appreciate the people here and the artists and friends I've met. Art in any form is a result of passion, passion is an expression of conviction, and conviction doesn't always fit among the status quo. This isn't a bad thing, in fact it drives a change in perception, which keeps life interesting.
Art keeps life alive. Pages of a story are tree rings counting ages. Painted areas bend light in just the right way to tell the feelings behind the image. Photographs are events from my eyes to your mind. Words are links between concepts - what my experience says is reflected in a complementary/conflicting way in yours, and each of our worlds gets larger.
So, glad to back and inspired ("inspire" - to breathe into) by my deviant friends. I continue to learn from your art and other expression.
More coming soon. I am planning on more prose, photos, and Kellen.
Feel free to talk about or ask anything, I don't mind conversing.
