I hear in my mind all of these voices;
I hear in my mind all of these words;
I hear in my mind all of this music;
And it breaks my heart.
--Regina Spektor, "Fidelity"
It is flat-out embarrassing how long it has been since I updated anything here!  I've been checking my messages and watch lists regularly, but darned if I could be moved to post.  This past year saw the hardest post-con crash I've ever had thanks to a year that was quite unusual and very busy overall.  It genuinely felt GREAT to just say "To heck with it" and do a great of genuine nothing--save reading, cleaning, and relaxing--for a few weeks and to just let the holidays be the holidays.

That said, a few paintings did fight their way past my laziness, and I'll be catching my gallery up today.  I also want to extend a BIG thank you to Pam for gifting me a shiny new DA subscription!  Mine ran out some time ago, and I confess, my missing it (but not being willing to pony up the monies to renew it after such an expensive year) was another reason for my absence.  Now, to stage a semi-triumphant return!

Some of Pam's lovely jewelry:

Update:  The newbie paintings (some of them, anyway!) are up!

Hello back, sir!  I tend to be a bit of a ghost here, as RL has so much to track, but I try to at least keep things up to date. :)

I just stumbled upon your art, and I have to say, is it ever refreshing to see a traditional artist for once. You inspired me to look for my paints and my paintbrush to do some paintings later today.
You have such an amazing colour pallet in every picture, and I love the fox portraits you've done. They have such an inspiring softness to them. :iconfoxplz:
