    Not sure if should keep mixing or go to bed for a nap...the mixing is fun, but the sleep sounds refreshing.

    Also not sure where personal pronouns went.

    Its not about finding the "right path" but more so finding the path that's right for you

    Why does sculpting faces have to be such a royal pain and seem to go wrong at every turn >_<

    Ha, yes! Interesting how a face, to look at, seems like such a simple thing until you attempt to re-create it

    Re: The Artist Rant

    I am not an artist, I am a crafter.

    Wanna know why?

    You know what stopped me from being an artist?

    eyes

    I can draw one awesome eye.

    But only one.

    Trying to draw its mate is a skill that has always eluded me.

    The natural non-identical symmetry of a pair of eyes was my defeat as an artist.

    Sure, I could only ever draw the profile or the back of someone/something...but that would get tedious.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: The Artist Rant

    I have two artist rants for today.

    1. I hate and despise geometric figures and landscapes. I cannot freehand them - they irk the hell out of me and just generally put me in a sour mood.

    2. I think that I'm pretty much done with drawing as a hobby. I find no pleasure in it at all anymore - and I don't know if that's due to being taken advantage of for years with "mates rates" commissions or just having moved on to a different medium (sculpting).

    Editing other people's work sometimes makes me feel better about my own work, but it sometimes also makes me wonder if I put in wayyyy to much effort for the pay that I get...
