my painting lately has been sporadic at best. i think it is mainly my choice in subject matter. i got into a niche of doing portraits for a little while. more of a rut actually. and the last time i did a "show" i rushed through it. it was something of an accomplishment, but i did five portraits in two weeks. and i continued to...

I am so very sorry to hear of this. What a devastating accident...your poor grandpa, that is so awful. How is he doing now?

@savor i wish i could say things have gotten better.  he has healed up fine, physically.  but the emotioal toll has caused a huge slide in his mental stability.  dimentia, hallucinations, crying fits, rage.  it has all made care very difficult for my dad and aunt.  and the rollercoaster has been insane.  one week my dad tells me i should come home to see him, because we don't know how much longer he has, another week he is telling me that nobody should see him like this, and yet another, i have been told to be prepared for a funeral.  in a quandry to say the least.

I can't imagine that anyone would NOT be kind - well, at least they better not. Anyway. You look really good already so I imagine you'll start to see the results you want in a relatively short time! Are you doing any sort of workout regimen in particular? I've been so unmotivated with it lately, ack.

sporadic at best, @savor.  work has kept me on the road lately.  no chance for a routine... yet.  and thank you, beautiful
