Anatomy and Art

As we get further into February

without comments

Next week I will arrive at having put in my first month at the new job.  For those of you that don’t know, I’m working for Sapling Learning.  We do online homework and ebooks, and goodness what we do here with Sapling is leaps and bounds beyond anything I ever had to do online with any of my classes.  My first week down here, I actually ran into some chemistry students at a bar and they all knew Sapling and loved it.  A fair bit of my graduate project was in education, and it’s really great being a part of something that is so clearly an educational benefit to so many.

I can’t say that I’ve been doing a lot else in the realm of either anatomy or art lately.  It will probably take me a while to settle in enough with the new place to start painting again.  I have found that I am one of those finicky artists when it comes to personal projects.  Right now, I’m still looking for where to put all the paintings I moved here with.  Much love to the people who bought art from me before the move down here.  In my last week in Chicago I was able to sell my two most recent paintings.

I’m not sure if I’ve been getting especially better over the past few years, or people simply like things that are new, but it seems like my newer pieces keep selling even though I still have some that I’ve carried with me for years now.  Come to think of it, I suppose last year was pretty much my decade mark for getting into painting as a personal endeavor.  I took classes when I was a kid all the way through high school, but then I stopped for some years when I went off to college.  It wasn’t until 2001 that I picked up a brush again and went for it.

Well, this has been a bit of a meandering post.  My apologies for being such a scatterbrain tonight, but I intend to blame moving for at least another couple weeks as far as such things are concerned.  You may think that’s just a slack excuse, but I am a firm believer in the principle that one’s surroundings influence them.  Everything at work is so nice and uncluttered, and I have been a right bastion of focus there at times.  Home, not so much, not yet.  I do a lot of walking around in circles when I’m home, going from one thing that needs doing to the next.  It’s like that.    And that’s exactly what I’m going to get back to now.

Thank you for reading!
