This is the story of Stan & Otis. Stan is a metal man ... not a tin man, but he's in the same family. And Otis is a blue dog.
I was touched by the wonderful response to my latest feature show when darkness comes. I never imagined that my art and prose would connect with so many people. At the reception in May, several people spoke with me about their own struggles with depression, and how my work resonated with their own experiences. Some spoke to me about loved ones who struggle, and how they could see aspects of them in my art. And at least one gallery visitors told me the show opened her eyes to issues she really didn't know much about.
I'm a procrastinator…I admit it. A perpetual postponer, a putter offer, a prolonger. It's my nature. Sometimes, I break free from this norm and get things done early. When I do, I celebrate. I think to myself “I can do this all the time!” This might last a few days, maybe a week. But then, I am right back to putting things off again.
