The Creative Endeavors Thread Has a Lot on Its Mind

Not much new to talk about this week, I’m afraid; between the ongoing political drama (the Michigan primary–on which I have profoundly mixed feelings–is today and I expect I’ve already voted), a slight bit of ennui and, on a more positive note, a lot of creation, my store of discussion topics or personal ruminations is running a bit dry this week. That said, some interesting things on the horizon I’ll probably talk about below.

Today’s header photo was taken in Algoma, Wisconsin, in August 2018, and I used it as the basis for one of the two acrylic paintings I finished in the past week. It was my first real try at using a photo as the basis for a painting, and though I don’t want to make a habit of it, I think I’m working photography into my work in a way that makes sense to me (and doesn’t quite feel like cheating, silly though the concept feels when discussing something as nebulous and subjective as art).

How’s your work going?
