Art. It pushes your soul sometimes. Sometimes it is all the time and sometime that is good. For me it can be a crutch when the bad or sad times come along. At the moment I am in the middle of a very ambitious project. I am doing it because I want my brain to be occupied with something. Something else. The things and or people that bring me down, do make it harder to feel inspired. I do not want that distraction. To avoid that spiral down in to low self esteem, depression and it’s friends, I have started this Art project to remind me that I am possible. The initial plan is for 6 hand drawn Color pencil Illustrations, based on my own Photography of Jones Beach. I am trying my best on these. They are not easy subjects and I am purposely challenging myself with photos that seem impossible to do justice to with my pencils. Starting a project and finishing it are 2 different things. it means I have maintain the same level of focus for long time, long enough to them at least. This pre-occupation is stops me from being pre-occupied with those sad and bad things. However besides self therapy, I have another motive and that is to try and sell my Art. While I am creating these first 6 pieces, I am also pre-occupied with the logistics of printing, framing and shipping them. I want to do this on my own to ensure the quality of the prints, the framing and fulfillment. I hope do have that worked out soon so I can provide a product worthy of your consideration. I also hope to work out a few other things along the way so I can… Carry On. @ngelo.
