Interesting Conversation by DancingCavy
Interesting Conversation
I haven't spoken to my muse in a long time.  Life's gotten in the way and my heart hasn't been in my art in years.  There are a lot of reasons why I've had such a disconnect with her.  I decided that I needed to reconnect with that part of myself again.

So tonight I spoke to my muse.  It was an interesting conversation. . .

That's No Moon
Oh wait.  Yeah it is.

Yep, I'm not the only person to post photos of last night's rare occurrence.  But it was actually fun to do some nighttime photography again.  :)  It was even neater to see the results since most of the stars you see in the photo were not visible to the naked eye.

I think I need to do some more nighttime pictures.  :)

Glad to finally be done with this.  And DONE in general.  I'm not doing commission/portraits anymore for a long while.  They're not creative or fulfilling artistically and, honestly, I still don't want to art anymore.  Yeah.  It's been 5 years since I was laid off from my last artistic position and my Muse is still MIA.  I'm also tired of taking forever to complete commission work (due to lack of ambition and lack of time) so I'm hanging up my pencils in regards to portraiture.  Maybe I'll actually consider doing some art of my own again in the interim.  I wouldn't bet on it, though.

Continuing to make progress.  Hopefully I'll have some time to dedicate to working on this soon.

Colored pencil.

Just over two weeks ago, I ended up in the hospital for an emergency appendectomy.  Honestly didn't see that coming!  Fortunately everything went well.  The surgery was quick and easy and my recovery has been good.  I had to take it a bit slower which I'm terrible at doing.  But I'm healing nicely and almost back to 100%.  At least I no longer have to consider whether or not I should do something or wait and do it later.  :)

On the art front, I'm offering 25% off any cartoon-style portrait through August.  I'm also open for logos and custom work (t-shirt designs, etc.) though no discount there.  I'm closed for any realistic portraits.  Check out my website for more details:

DancingCavy Featured By Owner May 22, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes. I am terrified!! ;)

Sorry I hadn't gotten back to you on the note you sent me. Just been a bit busy lately and, whenever I do get some free time to waste online, I tend to forget you sent me a note. I'm such a bad person.
