That’s right! I am back hehe. In the time off I have settled down in Somerville and started my life in Boston again. A lot has been going on in the short time I have lived up here and it seems like it has been way longer than just (nearly) two months really.
Trying to establish myself as an artist and find a place in the artistic community up here in Boston, especially in Somerville and it is going alright so far…hoping for a little more growth to come with the new year but part of it is on me and not pushing as hard as I should be (both my opinion and probably fact).
I have stopped by several galleries that I hadn’t seen before and think I am going to make this a weekly routine. I know not a lot of people I know go out to galleries as religiously as I do but it is fun even on my own so it is what it is 😉 Can’t be part of the community without going into it!
I recently started seeing a new special someone and I have to say she is simply amazing and has been an inspiration for a couple pieces of work now 🙂 But this isn’t a relationship blog so I’ll keep it to a minimum! Ha, just needed to give a heads up and all since she is wonderous and there will be a fair amount of work dedicated to the gal on here 🙂 (The first being the piece below! I know I posted it on Facebook before but wanted to put them up here too)
Hurrah! The first draft of the Surrealism Discussion paper is about half way done (if I had to judge by looking at the length and my notes). I am not going to post the incomplete copy but if anyone wants to read the in progress piece feel free to message/email me and I will be more than happy to send you it so you can see what has come of the piece thus far and if anyone does read the in progress piece please give feedback it will only aid me in finishing the project (too many people are hesitant to give feedback because they don’t want to say anything negative..only time I don’t want to hear it is if you can’t be constructive with it!)
I have an incredible amount of photography I have been doing over the past almost month that I am going to review and post in the next few days as well (a big chunk from the Green Love Festival up in Starks, Maine). I wont be posting all the pictures obviously because that would end up being a gallery over 800 pictures large and that just isn’t reasonable. But a good portion of the pictures will be cleaned up and posted and as usual full resolution images will be available to anyone I just like posting smaller ones for loading purposes and all that jazz
Things just seem to be getting busier and busier but in such a great positive way! I have several projects that I am working on concurrently both for school and for myself. I am still on the garbage collecting kick and have a television centered project that I will be able to start and finish as soon as I get a screwdriver to remove the tube. I realize I could break it open but I want to cleanly remove it can keep all the elements intact to utilize them in design.
In other news I went on a little bit of an adventure this past weekend to Maine, Starks to be exact and it was absolutely wonderful despite it being fairly damp most of the stay. I think it was exactly what I needed right now, I love Boston and the urban setting but I needed some escape and just sitting around the camp sketching and coloring and cooking (I was on chef duty for the weekend, which I was most than happy with)…it was perfect. Not to mention meeting plenty of great folk and spending an entire weekend with a select one whom I already know quite well (in addition to getting the priviledge of waking up next to said person). I’ve started teaching some basic yoga stuff, just to a couple friends of mine nothing major but it makes me feel really good that I can share my knowledge with someone else that wants to learn as well.
Sorry that this post doesn’t have a new project in with it but coming soon I will make up for it I promise I have a lot that I am finishing up 🙂 (and heck starting at the same time!)

Those of you that know me well know how much I love archive.org from the live recordings archive to all of the propaganda from years past there is little reason for anyone to not love it.
So I’ll give you yet another to, free movies! (Sure everything online is free if you try hard enough) But these ones don’t even need to be pirated! This was actually linked from the Archive.org site but if you have never been there well… you wouldn’t have seen the post so I wanted to share. Plus it would be a great way to introduce yourself to the site. I have seen a bunch of the films on the list but there are still several I need to snag for the first time myself. However just by going off of what I myself have already seen it’s very high quality. What’s even better is they are all there for the taking you don’t have to try all that hard to find them
Enjoy the classics and explore the site!
