Semi - Demo

A quick demo. Unfortunately the same thing I always do happened again. I start out with the best intentions but I only get a few photos shot before I go into a painting stupor and forget to photograph the whole painting process. I should hire a photographer. Or at least someone to stand there and poke me from time to time and remind me to shoot.

Well hell. I bonked.
I am trying to get my blog off the ground again and I went back and read some of my past posts for the first time in a year and I noticed last year at the first of the year one of my New Year's resolutions was to post more on my blog.
So here I sit again hoping this year will be more of a blogging year. I actually enjoy it but due to other electronic media and outlets blogging has taken a backseat. Marc Hanson, fellow artist and blogger, recently wrote a post about the same issues concerning him and his blogging effort. One that I think confronts us all. Facebook has become such a dinosaur in the room you just can't ignore it. It is the single most effective way to see other art, artists, art groups and promotion of your own work. And......its free. So it gets attention. But it has its limitations. Some of the most insightful things I have read have been on blogs. They are a much better format in my opinion of information and a bit of creative thinking and writing.
So having said all of that I am going to make the effort once again. This time though no promises or resolutions. Just a commitment to work and write and post and share.
And keeping with the art theme, the pieces I have posted are from a recent trip to Denver and the Rocky Mountains. They are as impressive as everyone had warned me they would be.
