Already gone (18 x 18 acrylic collage)
Here's another painting I did when I wasn't here posting. I'm sure you were getting up every morning, making your coffee, flipping open the lid of the computer and heading straight to After the Artists Way only to discover that I haven't updated a thing since last week.
Or perhaps you show up once a week and read a week's worth (or less) of posts.
Or perhaps you didn't even notice I was gone.
Thank goodness. I was started to get worried. It an honor to be part of your daily life. I have a few blogs I visit each day and when they haven't posted, I feel a bit of my Impatience Dragon rise.
What? You don't have one? Do you have a dragon to deal with? According to this guy, there are a bunch of Personality Dragons to contend with, such as Greed, Arrogance, Stubbornness, Self-Deprecation, Martyrdom and Self-Destruction.
I think all the dragons come out in road rage. I've had some road rage lately. I think it's more to do with my general lack of interest in—and my frustration with—my current daily life than the assholemotherfuckingjackassIDIOT drivers out there. Though, it could be their fault, too. Entirely their fault in fact.
Just as I was writing this post, there was a car accident outside my apartment. Everyone was fine. Plenty of hollering and some scraped metal. Just another day in paradise.
That leads to the painting shown above. It reflects the loveliness of taking to the open road. No road rage in this art. The USA is perfect for road trips, and I've taken my fair share. It's like the whole country agreed to create towns and cities close enough and far away enough so you could get any kind of road trip you desire. Then someone came up with freeways and that was the end of that.
Now you can go across the country and not see a thing. And everything you thought was there once is already gone.
