The Spins Of Creativity

10 Feb 2020 1 minute read comments DriptorchStudio

  My head spins sometimes, not from alcohol (though that used to be the case quite frequently), but from everyday busy-ness and stress. I keep going, but the days keep overwhelming me. At least it's good motivation to take photos! Creativity is an o...

Into the Void

8 Feb 2020 1 minute read comments DriptorchStudio

Into the Void It's not often that I get a chance to purposely go out and take pictures. I wish it was my full time job but sadly I have to make my living with much more mundane work. So I have to be creative with my moments, finding opportunities wh...

Steamed

 I used to have an issue with the term "triggered". But more and more I think I understand it. It's not usually anger though. It's usually anxiety. Or depression. Or just a general sadness. Sometimes there are things that just make me physically twi...

Cracked

My life's been a bit abysmal as of late. Days are hard, circumstances suck. I feel like I am breaking down and losing every fight. I know people want optimistic posts and posts about crypto and travel and frivolous nonsense. But maybe there is room...

When I Should Be Sleeping

I should be sleeping,  But my brain won't shut down.  I should be sleeping,  But my brain wants to run around.  I should be sleeping,  But I am creating.  I should be sleeping,  But I am dreaming.    And now I am asleep,  Because my brain has closed...

Angry Parrot

My daughter encouraged me to do an animal. I have done a few in the past but never with much success. So I pulled up some recent pictures from our trip to the zoo and decided on a parrot. I'm happy with the way it came out. Except he does look a bit...

Sadness, Acrylic on Paper, 2019 I realize that I may be posting all over the place on here. I am trying to work backwards from my newest to my oldest paintings and digital art, but that means I will be posting out of order every time I make somethin...
