I was looking through an old magazine I have and came across art from Wolf Kahn. Man, this guy is good. Inspired me to create this...

Good news: I got a commission for a portrait from a patron of Almont Gallery. I also finished the Introduction to Oil Painting class I was teaching for adults. And lastly, I bought a boatload of inventory from the art supply store that was going out of business in Waukesha. Great price and motivation to start producing more art!

I know I don't want to be sitting here in this office, looking out the window on a wet, cloudy and cool day. I went over to the mall and browsed through some art books. One part of me says, " I can be a full time artist" and then I don't know if I have the energy. The need to maintain a lifestyle I've grown accustomed too is the biggest barrier. I could probably figure out how to build a business with enough income to feel like I'm putting in my fair share of household income...but then why don't I do it? Motivation? Desire? I hate what I'm doing career-wise right now.
