The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.
I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

The bus and light rail were both on time this morning. This time the bus driver was the same one we had in the early part of last week.
Yesterday, I had a very productive painting day. I finished four paintings. Just so that no one is misled into thinking that I had a massive creative explosion, these were all paintings that I’ve been working on for some time. I rarely start and finish a painting in one day. I will be posting the paintings throughout the week.
Also on Sunday I finished up a watercolour painting. I admit watercolour is not my forte. Nevertheless, I’ll post that one as well.
Yesterday, at work I was surprised to find a co-worker who is normally chipper, mad as hell. It was really weird. She was slamming things around and cursing under her breath. I wonder if I did anything unbeknownst to me that upset her or if she was still mad at our supervisor over something he said earlier or if it was something entirely non work related.
I always feel uncomfortable when people are angry because I always feel it’s something I did but was unaware of....
The truth of the matter is that I don't feel any animosity towards anyone. For the most part I live in a bewildered, befuddled state, constantly trying to figure out how the world works. I'm too busy trying to navigate throught the NT world to purposely go out of my way to hurt someones feelings. Besides, I'm horrible at interpreting the motivations, feelings, reasonings of others. So when someone's upset I always find myself thinking, "Uh-oh, what did I do this time?"
Today, I’m wearing a purple shirt with lavender crochet trim around the neckline. With the shirt I’m wearing black pants and black canvas tennis shoes I bought from Walmart.
