UK Visit

Looks like I may be off to the UK on Friday for a week or so.

If so, I have already got a ticket to Comic Con in London on Sunday! (very very excited)
also ... I will be taking some paintings over in the hope of establishing a channel there (which would be super).

Commission Preview

Showing a commission a preview today of their painting (90% done).
I'm as nervous as a first date (I think ... It's been a loooong time, but I seem to recall butterflies).
Doesn't help that the commission is a nude portrait of her and her man (very tasteful ... beautiful in fact). It's not the nudity that makes me nervous (not at all), it's the pressure of representing people in a way that is completely truthful when so vulnerable.

Spare parts.

It's hard to rebuild yourself,
when you have been so broken down.
Reduced to parts of nothingness.
Left out back to rust.
I'm an engine stripped down and reassembled without the instructions.
The engine doesn't look or work the same.
There are left over pieces that don't seem to fit anywhere.
Spare parts in an oil stained cardboard box.
There is no love.
There is no passion.

I just am.
