I Have Been Published Again!

via I Have Been Published Again!.

I have been in photography for over 20 years, but took up Photoshop and computer art classes when I was going to college in 2004 through 2010. However, It wasn’t the last 4 years that I took it more seriously and started studying how to improve my skills. I wanted to be able to blend my artistic skills with my photography, or take my artistic skills and use the computer programs and create art with out photography.

So, I took a few more Photoshop courses, practiced with a few other programs and watched LOTS and LOTS of YouTube tutorials, as well as, other tutorials all over the internet.  I read as much as I could about the craft and practiced even more, and still do, you can never practice too much, or learn enough in this medium.

However, with all this effort it finally paid off!

It truly has been a long time since my art has been “active” besides in my own head, LOL

I can say I have had some buyers, I sell online, and I have had some commission work.  But things haven’t been where they were when I was younger, with art shows, published work and art festivals.  It seems that this past week might have been the catalyst point for my dying art freelance business and art life.  I ran spoke to an art associate I haven’t spoken to over a year now, I had a meeting with two art associates I haven’t spoken with in over two years, and ran into a friend who was part of the same art community as me over 17 years ago. All those re connections may of just breathed life back into this artist soul and my art life.

Because, since each one of their connection with me has been reconnected something great has been happening!

I booked an art show for November of next year, opening reception November 5th, 2016 5 to 9 pm

I have been asked to come up with an art program (weekly or monthly) and each it

Faceless People – Curtian Hiding The Light

I am working on a book of poetry and photographs that I have taken which will match the poetry I have written.  It is nearly ready to go to the editors to give it a good once over for organizational errors, spelling errors etc.  Then I will send it out to publishers.   There will be poems of humor, romance, darkness, spirituality, etc.  Below, is a sneak peek of the poem and photography that will be in my book titled “A Journey’s Path”.  I hope you enjoy this sneak peek!

Cutians ClosedFaceless People – Curtain Hiding The Light

 

Faceless people .. nothing but words on a screen… which can you trust and which not…..showing  false faces… which are of the light and which the dark…. some so open their souls laid wide – curtains pulled – for all to see….the dark ones pouncing a feeding frenzy … upon the flesh of the innocent ones.

Hiding among the shadows that has swallowed my soul .. desiring the light that I once knew and still feel deep with in….the light strains to be set free to burst forward and wrap around that special one… to shine through not be masked as a shadow … clouding my eyes… Yet pull the curtains..I must!
