After re-reading yesterday’s blog, (https://witchesbrewpress.wordpress.com/2012/06/20/a-night-of-art-takes-times-square/) I wondered if I had come across too cynical about everything. I probably did.

Just opened my email. Received one from the Artists Wanted company. Found out through their email that the Art Takes Times Square event which happened this past Monday was covered on NY1, ABC news and New York Times. Check out the link: http://www.see.me/june18th/

So perhaps I should do another blog entry, posting the rest of the photos from the night of June 18th, 2012. I had taken these pics with my cellphone. Unfortunately, my cell frizzled out on me yesterday afternoon. Which meant I couldn’t upload any more pics from that night.

Without further ado, here’s more photos from the Art Takes Times Square event, Monday June 18th, 2012.

Just right when my artwork pops up on the screen again during the party, this guy gets into my shot. Rude. Monday June 18th, 2012. Photo by Michele Witchipoo.

I’m not one to look into the past. It’s not something I normally like to do. Living in the present is a personal preference because as they say, yesterday already happened, and tomorrow may never come. I’m not the same person I was ten years ago, seven years ago, or not even three years ago. My point of views have changed dramatically in the course of a decade. Hell, it’s changed dramatically since a year and a half ago.

Having said all of this, I suppose it’s important to archive. Unfortunately, some really neat pieces I’ve done are now forever lost. Which is why now I normally don’t like to sell or give away originals. Perhaps I shouldn’t even pine over lost work. After all, I’ve really grown as both an artist and as a person. Contrary to what former ‘friends’ might say about me.

Still, it would’ve been nice. I had illustrations of Ganesha, Shiva, and Alister Crowley for example, circa 2003-2005. There was some basic Goddess and ‘Wiccan’ illos from that same period. There was two watercolor pieces I did as gifts to friends. One was a Norse related item, based on the Sowilo rune. Don’t regret giving away those, after all, they were intended as gifts. Luckily, I still have some of the JPG files.

"Sowilo" based on Norse Rune. Pen, ink, watercolor.

Since Mercury in retrograde is going to happen very shortly, I’ll use this time for reflection. Expect to see some old work within the next few days.
