And something about working in a notebook frees me up to make this mess without worry or guilt. I can’t explain why exactly. I’ve tried to see if there’s a scientific basis that connects working longhand with uncritical creativity, but evidence for that notion seems pretty scant. The actual work of shaping letters one by one, though, seems to turn off the part of my mind that hesitates and likes to second guess. My conscious mind kind of goes away. I think it helps that I know my notebook is just for me, a private thing, almost like a diary. The work becomes a recorded daydream.

Stay tuned for more news in the future months. I have been working very hard to produce one painting per day and to raise my eBay art store to a power seller level. The kitty cat series is currently being submitted to licensing companies and there are many more ideas and new paintings yet to be discovered. Thank you all for supporting a living artist!
This particular painting is intensely CUTE. ^_^
