The timing is off and someday soon it will turn on

In life we either get it right or we don’t as there really isn’t an in between nether world that we can climb into when things aren’t going the way we want them to. However, I tend to crawl into that purgatorial space when the creative bug hits and begin drawing the creatures that float around in it, in an attempt to make sense of what was, what is and what could be or write, right here, on the blog.

And it isn’t that things are going bad right now, they are however at a stand still of sorts and testing the limits with the timing being off and locating the on switch seems to be out of reach and dangling in front of my fingertips. I have to laugh at that because what else am I to do when it comes to men?

I decided to put my online dating profile to rest a couple of weeks ago and haven’t logged in since. I’d much rather meet a man in real life and talk with them face to face as between both Facebook and Plenty of Fish the men I’ve met through those sites are not what they make themselves out to be.

The Break Up… a Trilogy

  1. He said he loved me
  2. He said that he cared
  3. I trusted you

This series of wonderful little wine bottle illustrations were created with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens, Windsor & Newton watercolour and Prismacolor coloured pencils on extra thick archival board.

Each measures 2.5 by 3.5 inches (6,4cm by 8,9cm). Don’t let the small size fool you… An ACEO looks wonderful matted into an 8×10 inch standard sized frame. An ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They are collected worldwide and are the exact same size as a Magic or Hockey trading card.

The original ACEO illustrations and a larger set of 5×7 inch prints are available on HandmadeCloud while only the 5×7 inch print set is available in my Etsy shop.

From today forward all original artworks that I create will, more than likely, only be listed on HandmadeCloud for sale with prints being listed on both sites.
