Sending it Off

CA_LouLou_portrait_croppedI have finished and sent off some portraits that I’ve been working on for a long time and it seems I’ve become emotionally attached. This is something that I’m aware of with almost all of my artwork, but especially with conceptual pieces. Maybe because they take some time to develop in my mind and then I sketch them out, always fixing until I think they could be good and then I wrestle with my voices in my head that try to talk me out of them (the ideas I mean). I’m almost pretty sure it’s going to be a good idea and although I can’t quite see it and never know what it will actually be, I want to move ahead, and I do eventually- after I ignore the big part of my brain that always wants to talk me out of going with my first solid impression. This is a bit of a gestation period I guess and maybe it’s melodramatic, but I’m aware that it’s taking shape and it really drains me. If I had a good piece of my mind and heart invested in it, which I always do if I’m trying for something good, sending it off is like giving away a piece of myself. It’s so bittersweet, but I feel like it’s good to let it go, hoping the recipient will love it like I have. Like sending a lantern off into the sky, leaving my mark.

This segment began with Craig bragging about his new Mets fedora hat (Pictured) Steven Matz jersey, Which eventually led to Boomer BFF coming to grips with the fact that he has a fat face attached to the surface of his head and will probably never be a mogul. Recco then picked up the pieces and delivered his latest informative and enjoyment sports update Madison Bumgarner jersey, beginning with Noah Syndergaard Citi Field debut, Which was a beneficial one and concluded with a score of 5 1. The Amazin will encouraged the Cardinals to town Monday night for a four game series with Matt Harvey on the hill Steve Largent Jersey. The Yanks were not as fortuitous Donta Hightower Jersey, falling out 6 0 to the Royals. The Bombers have now lost five of their last six as they head to new york for a two game set with Bryce Harper and the Nationals Brock Holt Jersey. and as well Jake Arrieta Jersey, Braves pitcher Shelby Miller uses a no hitter to the limit, The Rockets come all the way up back from a 3 1 series deficit to beat the Clippers in Game 7 and mention of Jim Nantz and Rory McIlroy leads to laughter up in the Allstate Studio Derrick Coleman Jersey.
