Finished “Love Ballad”, it went way more quickly than “Floral Overload”, and I’m just as pleased with it.  I worked using the direction of the pencil strokes to convey movement and sound.  So, here ’tis:

So, now what?

I admit, I ran up against a brick wall when it came to ideas.  Not surprising, since I’m mildly depressed.

So, I decided to take on a project I hadn’t had time for….a self portrait.  In the middle of a clinical depression is probably not the best time to do one, but what the hell. I need it for promotion…make a new logo.

I’m also thinking in terms of what I’m accomplishing in terms of healing with my art.  I’m still doing upbeat and soothing images, that’s not going to change.  But I think to do some real action, I’m going to give a percentage of my profits when (if!) I sell a work to charity.

As a matter of fact, I have my dream set up.  I start a non-profit, selling my work and licensed products, and out of the proceeds, pay myself and an assistant a modest salary….the rest of the money going to various charities.  Ah, dreams.  For those who believe in it, send good energy.
