I am a self-taught freelance artist, my primary venue is pen and ink in the genre of stippling, or pointillism. I guess it depends on where you're from as to what you call it but I hear different things from different people who say that, "they know" that it's this or that. I just call it mine, because it was funny when I came across the format in the first place. I started working on this piece, it was originally in a be a sketch of a statue that I had bought my now ex-wife, but all of a sudden I started doing these dots around its silhouette and then I filled in the shape of the statues body and I thought I was a genius, be it for a short time. Shortly after that discovery, I still laugh about it today, I saw in the back of a magazine there used to be out but is no longer, called Omni. Now on the back page or so they would always have a unique picture of some sort. This one issue in the back had Domino's laid out and it looks really cool but they were just laying there on this table of some sort but they instructions bottom said to hold the picture approximately 5 feet from your face. In doing so a rendition of, it's been so long, I think Einstein or somebody of a similar stature was on the page. And that was my first realization as to what the dots did. In that picture it showed up close a bunch of Domino's just laying there, squared off to each other not in a disorganized manner but laying there side-by-side and on and site by and however and it turned out to be a portrait of somebody such as Einstein. And then there was somebody there at the store was looking at the magazine that called it stippling or pointillism, or a form of it as being all dots. So that was when I learned of my discovery being not something new but as I researched, was actually something hundreds of thousands of years old. Aside from that I have tried and succeeded I believe and doing some charcoal and pastel. My first and last piece that I had tried to do was of a football player walking off the field carrying his helmet. This piece was done for my daughter in the University of Oklahoma Cowboys colors. It was a pretty good-sized piece and I shipped it to her and her fiancé and unfortunately, maybe six months later they broke up and that was the last I had ever seen of that piece. The rest of me I guess you can learn about on my blog and website where I have my gallery. If I don't post that somewhere else on here all come back and put it in here, the link that is.

Tuesday, May 1 and I have three more days

Yep, I have three more days until my surgery and this waiting is just killing me. I’m just going nuts not being able to focus on anything because everything revolves around Friday. Actually Everything revolves around the results on Friday.I have so much work to do from class and I just cannot focus, I don’t know how many essays I have to write, two alone at 250 words, one at 350 minimum, and I think two additional at 500 or more.plus that isn’t counting the work I have to do each day, that I haven’t been able to finish, Shit! All right now here I go again, giving it another shot, focus focus focus focus focus

Distractions

I have been sitting here at my computer and I cannot get a single thing accomplished today. My hand is hurting in so many different ways it’s hard to really describe it, if it isn’t just the initial crushing sensation that I’ve been feeling for almost 4 years that is bothering me, then I am also getting these sensations of a jolt through my fingers or into my whole arm and I’m not sure what’s causing it, but it’s been going on for some time where all of a sudden my whole body jumps, like it’s been hit with some form of an electrical connection, and the other day I got zapped so hard from whatever this is, that I ended up kicking over my trashcan, and jamming my toes into my desk, and knocking stuff over across might desktop. It happens all the time, you could almost look at it as if it is like these earthquakes, sometimes there small and the epicenters not that big and it’s not that deep and then other times it’s massive and out-of-control.

so with all of that going on in my arm and my hand actually throughout my whole body unworried about the surgery and having on Friday, so nervous wreck and I just don’t know what to do. I can even get 250 words put down my screen slightly get these assignments done.

Well, I guess I better give it another shot, running out of time, fast.

I will catch you all later

This is day one, (Monday) of week nine in my humanities class with the University of Phoenix. This also means that it is finals week and I still have more work from last week. Not only do I have that piling up on me, I have to go in for surgery on my neck Friday morning and this will be the fourth time the same surgeon as been into my neck, the same spot at as the other three times and this time will hopefully be the last. Is removing the implant he put him originally on September 29 of 2010. Plus this time he is also going to take out the battery and a wire that runs from the battery to my neck, I imagine you want to know where the battery is, well it is in my left butt cheek and kind of high but just below my belt line. I have to tell you that area has been hurting more and more lately maybe because of the way have been sitting or laying down I just need to get it out. I handed arm has been just in so much pain lately that I can’t even concentrate on reading for pleasure let alone for my schoolwork.

One thing I did though yesterday that was kind of fun, and that was it took some of my drawings that I had done and propped up and took out my camera and took some new photos of them and downloaded them onto my computer. So after a little bit of cropping I’m going to post them on my webpage with the website “FineArtAmerica.com”.

Well I’ve been putting it off long enough, and I’ve only got a few days this week to get my homework done, well till Friday morning anyway.
