"Don't Take This Path"
In January of 2013 I made a decision to post each and every piece of art work that I finished on this blog site. There have been some very embarrassing posts. There was a very large series with many pieces finished and many to go that was just abandoned. Attempts to do things that I will never know what made me think they were a good idea. Even attempted to do things that I will never understand what made me think I was capable of accomplishing them. (There is a lot to be said for talent and motor skills.) Vision alone won't always get you through.
I have done a lot of bad work. A person may have to do a lot of bad work to get to the good work.
This is the my most embarrassing post to date. There was a nice thought. (Remembering a scene just off the industrial part of Spring Grove Avenue that looks like you are about to take a walk in the country.) Then this rather fun beginning. Followed by a downhill slide into crass amateurism that there is no excuse for.
I do apologize for following my self imposed directive of posting each and every thing I finish. You don't deserve to be treated this way. Hopefully I learned my lesson. Hopefully it won't happen again for a long time.
