- Well now. Hopefully you’ve all read the previous entry so I won’t have to get into any lengthy, detailed explanation. I had my surgery July 2nd and spent the remainder of the month recovering and I gotta tell you —The difference is night and day! I’m always going to have some restriction. The condition that I have that is going on in the shoulder is degenerative and it’s quite possible that this could reoccur, but for the moment this is the best I have felt in many years. If you’ve followed me long enough you may remember that it wasn’t all that uncommon for me to be releasing 2, 3, sometimes even 4 brand new artworks per week. Up until the surgery I was lucky enough to manage getting one up every 4 months, sometimes longer than that so I’m really hoping this means getting back into myself and what has always been my life long passion. The very core of painting --of art in general-- is the story. I wasn’t exactly nurtured with the gift of gab, but I was given a basic tool kit: How to get paint to cleave to a canvas; the purpose, limits, and benefits of painting mediums to create the illusion of space and the narrative of all that I want so much to say.
Thank you everyone for your many prayers and continued interest in my works ~Shinju
P.S. Had to sit out this season in both summer commissions and the ‘Access The Arts’ display at the county fair so my rival, Chris Perry took home the ribbon this year. Enjoy it my friend because I’ll be taking back my throne next season *lol*
