My Latest Little Obsession

first I just want to thank everyone who has been reading my blog and commenting and sending me messages, you have no idea how wonderful that has been, to not feel quite so alienated has been amazing.

Saturday I had the day off, Keith was at the restaurant until late so I had the entire day to myself to work which was nice, though I did find myself completely overwhelmed by panic towards the end of the day, he had to work late and then went to the shop, my neurosis set in and I thought something dreadful had happened. It was sort of pathetic on my part, but my mind does get to wandering at times. I was almost in full blown hysteria when.....

He arrived home safe and sound complete with dessert from McCormicks a decadent chocolate bag filled with passion fruit mousse, I have yet to eat it, but have found my mind wandering to it often.

Sunday I took the WHOLE day off I did no work whatsoever, we slept in and ate junky foods and he made cinnamon roles in the morning. All in all the day was something I needed, and I can't remember a time in recent months that we had both been so relaxed. I am hoping that I can somehow channel all of the good feelings into the rest of the week with out too much inner turmoil.

I finally finished the book I was reading last night, it was called Thing of Beauty and it was the biography of was incredible and has gotten me totally obsessed with fashion photography from the 1970's...hence why the piece I am showing today has a really cool Helmut Newton photo from 1975. I titled the art card Paris 1975

That is my obsession of the moment, that and peanut butter Hershey Kisses which are so good, I have eaten about 10 of them in a row, I feel a bit sick now but if I had to do it again...well, I probably would.

Hi Jenn - thank you so much for your wonderful comments on my miniatures - It is so long since I have worked on my art that I am sure I have forgotten how - you though are an inspiration! It is also lovely to know someone is reading my blog - as I work from home or studio so much I too can often feel isolated which is part of the reason I am now developing an unhealthy obsession with all other art blogs! Beautiful new work - so stylish, can't wait to see what you come up with for this weeks challenge! Take care

lol Gillian, I too am Alone 90% of the time because of working on art, hence the battle of loneliness vs creativity.

The blog obsession is crucial to survival, it makes me feel so connected to other people when I write my own thoughts or read theirs.

You know, anytime you combine peanut butter and chocolate, magic happens. This is a fact. So I totally support your candy habit.

Also, Evil Kate told me yesterday that she bought some pieces from you, which made me really happy. I do get a commission from all these referrals, right? ;)

To clarify that last comment:

She bought pieces of art from you, not candy.

Hey Jenn,
I just finished reading the first comic book and I love it. Is it semi-autobiographical? It's damn cool.

aaron- you should be my art agent, I need for you to work at the gym anymore, just put on a beret and sport a snooty accent and help me take over the world.

Rebekah- yes the comics are semi-autobiographical and I am very glad you are enjoying them, issue #3 is my favorite!!!

Now if I could only get a new artist I could finish the story and let Aaron make his comic character preview.
