Art Two Hearts

Linked

One of the things that happens when you decide to start a blog is you suddenly discover you have taken on a new full-time job on top of your current full-time job, which if you are an artist and your studio is your home means you are already working two jobs (making art and making home), so now you have three. That’s kind of a downside.

The upside is that this process is a bit like conducting an archeological dig on your own life. It’s way cool sifting through the layers and rediscovering old work, old memories, and seeing how all those parts are linked and have formed who you are now and why your art is like it is today.

Maybe not every blog is like that, but I want to present a whole picture of who I am, my art, my home, the whole catastrophe. If you imagine that concept within the boundaries of time, then you’ll need to look back in time with me, AND see where I am right now. And the future? We’ll see.

Today I want to share part of my past, my present, and God willin’ and the creek don’t rise, my future — the most important and consistent “link” in my life: Mike.

Mike is a true Renaissance man,

a complete goofball,

and my one and only.

Spend some time with his blog, Michael Chambers Paintings, and get to know him a little bit. That will help me with that “whole picture” I’m working on presenting to you…and free me up today so I can go get some work done on my two other full time jobs!
