Learning new skills

Learning new skills

As I have mentioned a few times already, I have been devoting my time lately to learning 3D modelling and animation skills. I am learning these skills for both the pleasure of learning and the satisfaction inherent in creating. I have never sought expertise in anything. To me learning is ... Read More
Glow

Glow

To me, creativity is not a character trait but a separate force that each of us has access to. It is like an internal glow that radiates ever outward. How it manifests does not depend on the strength of the glow. Rather it is determined by the filters it passes ... Read More
The Power of Perseverance

The Power of Perseverance

I was not sure what I was going to do for today’s post. I often draw a blank until suddenly something flips a switch and I have a post … thought sometimes it might be a day late. Today, I focused on working on a 3D modelling project I started ... Read More

More creating

I am continuing my exploration of 3D art and animation. I suspect I will be for a while because I am thoroughly enjoying it, it keeps me very busy, and there is a LOT to learn. Here are more of the products of the learning curve. The images are getting ... Read More
Everyone is an artist

Everyone is an artist

What is art? What does it mean to create? To me they are different parts of speech for the same process. Create is the verb. Art is the creation … the noun. Simply put, creation is expressing our soul in the physical world. Art is the ultimate result. Anyone can ... Read More

In search of inspiration

I woke up one morning feeling very unmotivated. I just could not find any good reason to do much of … well … anything. Usually I have all sorts of ideas of what I might like to do now, but that particular now, I simply had nothing. Something was simply … missing. I thought for ... Read More
What do I believe?

What do I believe?

Some parts of my core belief systems are hard for others to understand. Whether it is a failure on my part when trying to explain, or they simply don’t see it, it can be frustrating. But a FB friend of mine recently pointed this video my way, and beyond it being an amazing demonstration of human skill, ... Read More

A twofer

Last week was a bit out of whack for me. Between the world ending, the holidays, a few days of actual social life, and starting my newest attempt to save the world (which is kind of silly considering the world just ended), I completely missed last week’s 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups. I really wanted to ... Read More
A long overdue good deed …

A long overdue good deed …

I haven’t done any gratuitous plugging (other than maybe for myself) in a while. I feel so un-American now. But this is easily rectified, so here I go. Of course my plugs still qualify as invisible in the grand scheme of things, but for some people two new readers is still a bonus. For instance I would ... Read More
