Raven in Flowers 20 x 15 inches on illustration board.

This took me a long time to finish. I wanted to see if I could do it, so I did it, I’m happy with the work as far as I see. Eventually, it became kind of a Mandela, a maze, that I followed through, line by line, point by point. I tried to create some drama in the tonality, by developing the contrast between dark and light. I didn’t want to totally add colour, but instead use it to highlight some of the objects in the work. This was hard, I really missed my paints, but it was a good exercise for me. I need to do this from time to time and this will go into my collection of works as part of my “in the woods” body of work.

I’m struggling with the day job, not because it’s untenable but because it seems a little bit over-demanding and it’s eating into my other businesses. I find a 40 hour work week, doesn’t allow me the space to go into working on a painting, or even reading tarot for clients, which is something else I do. I feel pressured to work for “The Man” (Something my Grandfather thought was just nasty) in order to pay the bills etc. I guess this is life. I’m not a starving artist by any degree.

I have my work in two galleries but nothing is selling at this point, which is frustrating but I have to push on to make sure that something happens. All this means that I need to focus in on what counts and work around it.
