The merging of two worlds...

So....after many, many months of indecision and waffling, I've decided to begin posting both my visual musings and musical ones here on the same blog -- for now.....buckle up, gang; I was a musician long before I started painting, and it's a pretty twisty road to and from. To start, I'd better set the record straight. I am indeed still painting. About a year ago, I came to the conclusion that I needed two things; 1) To study my newer craft much more privately for a time to discover what kind of a painter I want to be; and 2) A JOB. I went back to writing music for a living after four years away, and probably the most fascinating thing about that change, is how a couple of years of painting changed the way I approach nearly everything in music -- but more on that in another post. For now, it's enough to say that I'm fairly certain I needed to go on that multi-year journey, to come back to the art form that first took me back when I was twelve years old. I'm hoping to share those insights, and discover new ones, with a re-dedication to this blank space here in the digital ether. Peace B
