To answer a few questions from the comments- am I closer to Pasadena? We moved a whopping 1 mile further east so no, we're further now (thanks Levon!). Where in Riverside? We live nearby UCR, right at the base of Sugarloaf mountain. And I already felt like a true grown up when our daughter was born. Despite the fact that I was already 30, I felt like I went from kid to adult in one day. I guess responsibility can do that to you.
Speaking of responcibilities, I'll be taking a break from posting in here. I'm taking a much needed break from the internet. There's too many web sites I check daily, too many forums I read on and too many distractions. I'm going to be hibernating in the studio for the next 2 months. I have been so busy with things (moving, birthdays, various art projects, taxes, internet difficulties, travelling, blah blah) that sadly I haven't had much time to just sit and make art.
So I'll be doing just that for awhile. I cleared out most of my ongoing projects, I'm going to let some things slide, and just disappear into my magical lab for a while. Time for experimentation, some soul searching and risk taking. It's time to let the phone ring, let the emails pile up, leave the computer off for weeks and get my hands dirty. Time to consume intense amounts of caffeine, listen to loud music and go to sleep each night just itching to wake up and feel the creative surge all over again. It's time to make some art.
I need to get away for a bit and do my thing. As my career grows sometimes I feel like I do more paperwork than artwork. That's just sad to me. I will still post in here from time to time with news but don't have the time to give this blog the love and pictures it deserves until December when things slow down. Thanks, I know everyone understands..
