    Santon steadilly stabs support[daily upgrades]

    Welcome...Skip to end to view recent stuff at end...

    otherwise...here's a little rambling...in case anyone gives a damn, which I don't expect anyone to.

    First off... I feel old. I'm not old old... but I'm 32 and I just started(with serious intent) with the art and art school in Sept 07. I used to be a chemist, and I was working my PhD in intermetallic solid state chemistry but after 5 years of that, I decided that my thesis wasn't worth finishing and dropped out. Not that I'm trying to say how smart I am...trust me...the one thing you need more than anything else to get a PhD is the ability to get through mountains and mountains of boring crap, and I really didn't have the stomach for that. So I guess I wasn't really chemistry PhD material. Anyhow. I see people younger, older and with more experience and talent than I, and I wonder why the hell I'm doing this. Sometimes I felt like that in chemistry, but I didn't bother me the way it does now.

    But I do miss the community. Anyways. Knowing that I could have been making art this whole time, instead of squandering it away wondering what the hell I was going to do with my life, has lead me to dedication I've never had before. The problem is getting over all my bad habits...the rushing(mostly)...missing the details. I don't want to make crap...I spent so long making crap, and I want it to stop. But it's habitual... anyhow...I'm trying to take my time, and when I find myself rushing I try to take a break instead of rushing a piece to ruin.

    So far, the art thing is treating me well. I got my first real commission. Ok, so it's just for the school, but it was a juried thing and I won. Woo. I was paid to draw caricatures for a highschool aftergrad... Most of them turned out, there were a couple I wish I had taken back and started over again...but I'll remember that for next time. When I had a moment to look around I saw that aftergrad was just as lame as I remember it. I guess they call it a prom in other parts...

    Well...I do a lot of drawing...and I've been painting a lot because I have a show at the end of September that I'm working towards...they won't be portraits...generally... oh well. Well...I've gone on...enjoy...

    Decided to make the pig/moose thing into an oilpainting to sell for food at next week's "Starving Artist market" where I will trade art for food...or booze if I'm lucky.

    This is just the underpainting...blech

    Haha your wood carving is tripping me out. Your stylized ink drawings are very appealing, but I think your oil painting needs a little more work. Overall, kudos to you! I'm glad you're pursuing the arts after chemistry haha
