Remembering My Creative Muse
(A Personal Story)
Well guys, I’ve kind of been AWOL for a little while, but I’ve had good reason…That reason is that I have sad news to share. I don’t get into my personal life all that much here unless it relates to something I’m writing about, but this one is of a whole other ball game and a more deeply personal nature. My husband recently passed away on the 27th of July after a long bout with multiple symptoms; most of which were befuddling to deal with much less find the cause or relief of.
He’s going to be missed terribly, to say the least; and I’m not the only one grieving; my in-laws are equally broken up. We were able to get togetther and remember the light he shined in all our lives….But as I don’t want this post to become too much of a sad story, I want to take a moment to pay homage to him. Although my husband didn’t live to practice art to the point that I do; he did demonstrate talent, as evidenced by these colored pencil sketches below.
His “thing” was more computer and animation graphics…I remember his big dream in life for the last two years before his death were to DIY the ultimate arcade cabinet (yep he was a very devoted gamer) which I stood by….But as much as I wish I could bring this dream to reality, I don’t know if I have the aptitiude for something like that 🙁
One of my earliest memeories of him fixing something for me was the time he was able to rig my mason jar lamp -The harp was not sitting on correctly after a while and he was able to attach a couple of screws to hold in in place firmly.
Well, while I’m not sure what direction this blog will take now that my better half has passed on, one thing for sure I want to honor him as well as I can even if I somehow don’t learn to build that arcade cabinet…
