There are times when a person can be beaten so badly and so repeatedly by life that they no longer have the strength or the will to get up. I am in such a place and have been for some time now. The world is not a fair place, and I have had more than I can bear in one life time.
I had hoped to return to blogger to participate in the Painting Challenge, but I missed deadline and now find myself in no hurry to return to blogging. Although I have painted many figures in my absence and have acquired new techniques such as painting weathered metal, object source lighting, free hand and grey scale, I feel no desire to share my work.
Perhaps I will return in a few weeks if this depression lifts, but until then I prefer to keep to myself.
