First off I want to wish all my American friends a happy Thanksgiving. I’m staying put this year, but if you’re travelling I wish you a safe journey.
Secondly, I’d like to direct your attention to the new images page. You’ll find my latest upload at the top of the page: “Campfires 2000”. As the title suggests, it is an update of the “Campfires” image I posted last year. I hope you like it.
Now I’d like to share something personal with you. You may or may not have noticed that my work has slowed somewhat in the past few weeks. There is a reason for this.
About three weeks ago I decided it was time to break my 10 year smoking habit. It hasn’t been easy. Smoking was always a part of “the process” for me. I smoked when I worked and I still feel a strong “need” to smoke when I sit down at my computer to work. The mental energies that were going into my artwork now seem to be directed mainly at surpressing my urge to light up.
So I beg your patience while I sort this all out. I’m sure as time passes life will get back to normal for me and the artwork will start flowing again. If any of you would like to share your own success stories or encouragement, please send them along.
Again, I’m sorry if things slow down a bit for the next few weeks. Hopefully it will pay off in the long run.
