new FJH track, listen while you browse, its one of my favourites so far...FJH - CryStep VIP by FJH
i have been working very hard today to not get sucked into my screen as yesterday i literally spent every minute from the time i woke up to the time i went to bed editing and finding myself stuff to do on my laptop, i find when that happens that i totally disconnect, i'm sure everyone has the same problem though,
i'm often torn about internet time, i know i spend far to much time wandering around the www, but i just always find something i need to research or to check, think i go on hotmail about 20 times a day, since i've left facebook i've been on blogger and society 6 ALOT more as well, i even exercise to a screen!
the thing found most interesting about my growing compulsion is how it makes me view my work, i can look at it in context to others and compare styles, skill and composition which i think has pushed me into developing myself faster than if i didn't have this tool, it also makes me think about how each piece will scrub up online, last night that started a thought tangent about how much artwork is viewed on a screen compared to in reality, i must look at 50 pieces of art/illustration minimum on a splurge day, which after writing it down makes me realize how much that is! i go to a gallery maybe once every few weeks, so my main art intake is from the web and i believe this must be the same for most people.
i know i'm not writing this very articulately but hopefully you understand my meaning, anyway i have to go, will leave you with a couple of photo's i took of my art in progress mess, i'm really excited about how my new paintings are going, it makes me feel like a real painter again....
