Latest Artwork Endeavors

I didn’t get to make much artwork over the summer, so I’m just starting to get back into it.

I’ve been trying to experiment with different techniques and concepts.

Here are a few personal pieces I made this year.

Take An Art Break

It’s been a while since I shared some of my personal art here. I’m a bit wary sharing my art anywhere due to art thieves who try to claim it as their own or attempt to use it for their own monetary gain. Tsk tsk. So if you like the looks of something below, please click on the image for a better view in my deviantART gallery.

Just please don’t share or use my art without my permission.

Escape From Your Escape

There is no question that we writers love to write. But we also have to admit that there are times when we just can’t force ourselves to write or edit (especially edit.) And, frankly, we shouldn’t have to force ourselves to do what we love – we should just love doing it so much that it comes naturally. But, low and behold, we are human beings with many desires. Though writing is usually our favorite escape, there are times when we need an escape from our ultimate escape.

For me, I have a few backup escapes. My photomanipulations are one way for me to divert my frustrations, but I have a few other things that help me to break away. I hold a secret love for my Xbox, and I tend to replay games that I’ve finished more than a handful of times. That may sound weird, but when it comes to the Fable series, there are plenty of ways to play. In Fable, you can choose to be male or female, good or evil, and just about everything is customizable for your character. But what provides the most fun for me is my son. He’s at this age where everything is a mystery to him, and I love showing him new things. The other day, I had put the television on this music channel that plays songs fit for toddlers. When it started to play “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from the film Mary Poppins, what else was I to do but scoop him up and start dancing and singing? I had never seen him laugh so hard!

Now it’s your turn!

What are your escapes? What do you do when writer’s block gets in your way? How do you alleviate the frustrations of editing?

And don’t be shy – I’m a 30something mom who plays video games and sings Julie Andrews songs. 😉
