Yes, doing artwork is good therapy…..for me at least.  It gave me a reason to live, when depression was clouding my perceptions as to the quality of my life.  These days, I’ve been so busy, that it is literally a flower a day.  So, rather than ruin the surprise of the finish of “Floral Overload”  I will present a detail….one flower.  This is a close-up of the iris.

Next pic?  I’ve just recently been to a rock concert, and was impressed by the drama of the visuals.  I remember a fantastic inner cover of a “Wings” album (back when the artwork on a record cover was a dramatic statement in itself.)  It was a realistic, yet exaggerated painting of a rock concert.  It stuck in my mind long since my record collection faded into CD’s….faded into Mp.3’s…faded into ipods, my smartphone (and who knows what’s next).

Also, a friend’s scizophrenic relative did sort of an art brut version of a rock concert.  Very impressive, very dramatic.

So, after “Floral Overload” is finished, I shall enter the world of Hard Rock.
