Well, I’ll be taking a break for a bit from blogging. After assembling my entries for a juried assessment here in the Bay Area, I’ve come to discover that I am not happy with the influences I’ve allowed myself to follow as of late artistically and many of those reasons surround too much online time. Selecting work to be juried on a face to face basis is very different than submitting work to online blogs. And when faced with that task, I found that my work is below where I want to be in terms of the type of subject matter I cover and the way in which I attempt to compose them.
So the most healthy thing for me to do is take a break from the online community and start to focus on where I truly want to go and then take steps toward ‘there.’
