452. A good week

So during the time this week I usually set aside for writing blog posts, I tried something different: I made art. Art for myself, rather than the usual kind I do many, many hours each day for clients. It's been about ten years since I've been so selfish; it's great fun. Now to figure out how to find time to do that AND write, without giving up eating or sleeping.

It's writing's turn now, though; more to come shortly.

What kind of art?
It's so good to do something for yourself, isn't it?!

I guess you could call them digital paintings, inspired by Hebrew phrases. They're a little weird and dream-like, and lots of fun to make. And now I'm torn between finding time two things to do just for myself--writing, and that! (Life should be full of such problems, right?)

I would love to see some of your work; do you have any of it posted online?

Hello! They are not...they might be in the future, however (in connection with another website) in which case I will email you (since they are created under my OTHER name and I am still kind of trying to stay anonymous here).

I started doing "art" about 6 months or so ago. Mixed media stuff. I found I needed another type of creative outlet. It's been not only fun, but a wonderful way to channel my expression. I thought it had something to do with my turning 50 a few months back...

That's great (and happy birthday!). Do you have pictures of any of them that you can post?
