Updates, Downdates.The reason for my prolonged absence and significantly less "deviance" has been my new tenure track asst. professorial job. Someone recently addressed me as an ass. professor. I sincerely hope that that was a typo. Typos can be embarrassing. I bet I didn't get two of my favorite jobs (all of them in the Southwest) due to a typo I made in some application letters. Saying I teach "curses" on gender and new media doesn't look good for a potential employee. I missed the "u" somehow. So I ended up in the Midwest.Updates, Downdates. by Dreamydeb
I am now in Michigan, working at a new job, a long distance marriage and some academic publications. Have not been able to visit so much or create new art myself. I did try to keep my group :iconabstract-painting: running and the all beautiful abstract art submitted there kept my spirits high. Thank you, artists!
Here is a selection of the ones I absolutely loved.

|Here is a very short summary of quotes from the letters of Reiner Maria Rilke to a young poet (1903):|
Your work must be independent from others' work.
You must not compare yourself to others.
No one can help you. You can only help yourself.
Criticism leads to misunderstandings and defeatism.
Work from the necessity and your compulsion to do it.
Work on what you know and what you are sure you love.
Don't observe yourself too closely, just let it happen.
Don't let yourself be controlled by too much irony.
Live in and love the activity of your work.
Be free of thoughts of sin, guilt and misgiving.
Be touched by the beautiful anxiety of life.
Be patient with the unresolved in your heart.
Try to be in love with the questions themselves.
Love your solitude and try to sing with its pain.
Be gentle to all of those who stay behind.
Your inner self is worth your entire concentration.
Allow your art to make extraordinary demands on you.
Bear your sadness with greater trust than your joy.
Do not persecute yourself with how things are going.
It's good to be solitary, because solitude is difficult.
It's good to love, because love is difficult.
You are not a prisoner of anything or anyone.
Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 – 1926) was born in Czechoslovakia and died in Switserland. Considered the greatest modern poet in the German language, Rilke counceled the young poet over a period of five years. No evidence exists that they ever met.
I am mostly a self taught artist and a professional graphic designer. Recently I was certified in fine arts and advanced painting from Emily Carr, University of art + design, Vancouver.|
I enjoy working in different medias and I'm always on the look for the next creative possibility to express myself or simply to have fun with.
