Short hiatus, Art, and Beginnings

As I have taken this hiatus from blogging, I feel like I need to make up for all the cool stuff I lost with something that explains it. I have had flu two times in a month, and adding that to the holidays, and my daily activities, I have not been able to focus on my blog so much. But I missed all the people I have come to know through this blog and all the cool stuff they share.

I wish I hadn’t missed the Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginnings, because for me this blog itself represented a new beginning. The reasons and implications are numerous and I do not intend to explain why here and now, but suffice to say that it offered me a great new perspective on things. So I am glad to be back.

I have not made this known so far on this blog because I wanted to focus on photography and not my art, but I am also a mixed media artist. My intent was never to connect my art with my photos on this blog, but… this time I changed my mind. So, here it is to new beginnings, and to what else I have been doing besides blogging. The above photo is one of my recent paintings, called Shadow.
