Arty Updates

Wow, it’s been so long since I’ve wrote a blog post. Here’s what happened: I left my job at the university to work at an art gallery that also wants to be a hub for environmental activism (hoping I can slowly do my part to clean up the anti-human, Nihlistic mindset and bring more of Chesterton, Lewis, and Tolkien’s almost child-like love of both people and nature back into it). My hours are different now (long afternoon and evening hours), so keeping up with my routine of painting and drawing every day is going well, but I just haven’t done any blogging in a while.

I’m trying to think of an easy way for me to post every day without being too exhausting. I don’t necessarily want to post my daily progress, because you guys might get tired of seeing the same painting over and over with tiny alterations.

I’m still alive. Still making art, and I’ve finally started on my Saints coloring book. So far, I’ve only finished a Virgin Mary page, but I’m currently working on a St. Therese page as well.

I’ve also been hard at work on my David and Goliath reproduction:

And lastly, I’ve turned the reading nook in my living room area into a prayer space. I hammered a nail by the window, and that’s where my rosary goes, and I like to think I’ve been very good about going up there everything morning to pray.

One day I thought, “You know what this space needs? A gilded Sacred Heart icon.” So I started making one. And now here it is. Still not done yet, but almost.

And that’s all I have for now. Have a good day, everyone!
