It's been a while. However, my wife's health has improved with her latest medication and my stress levels are down most of the time - i have my moments and i am getting back to my painting, even if it is slow. I'm hoping to finish my latest by tomorrow.
Recently I came to a realisation that my art very much reflects the types of music I listen to most, though in reality I listen to most music. I usually start with an idea which is my starting point, and it then goes through a series of improvisations to end up as it is - very much like jazz and prog and a lot of rock music.
My wife tends to favour songs with a story and this very much fits in with her ability to construct stories in her writing, which also fits in with they type of art she does.
My watchers and friends do you find your art follows a similar path?
I once said my art enabled me to control my anxiety attacks - my doctor was a bit sceptical about that, but one of the things which happened during my enforced layoff of painting was I had my first attack in about 5 years. Since restarting I feel better so maybe I am right. Do you get anxiety attacks and what do you use to control them?
last month I went to my first gaming convention. I have been to (and run) science fiction conventions. My son wanted to go but needed a responsible adult as he is under 18 (why he assumed I was responsible???). It was good fun - the guests were interesting and i was impressed by the Cosplay brigade. Though I've never been into Cosplay, as an artist I can appreciate the work they put into their costumes. sajme time next year then!
Hopefully i will be in touch a bit more in the future as I feel more able to cope.
