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.

Today, I went to my Yoga Drawing class. I was again late but not as late as I was last week. Before coming to class I bought a new yoga mat. In hindsight it was stupid to go out and purchase a new yoga mat. Then again maybe I was wise not to bring my purple mat. I noticed that one of the students in the class also has a purple yoga mat identical to the one I have at home. The new yoga mat I bought today has a very groovy 1960s orange and pink floral design on it.
The yoga class was again very refreshing and enlightening. I really enjoyed engaging my entire body in the art process. I also feel that I came up with a lot of good work that could be the basis of a new series of paintings. I especially loved this picture I drew of a steaming cup of cocoa and cookies. It made me want to go out and eat some!
Also today I learned that the instructor also teaches another Yoga Drawing Class at Midtown Yoga. I believe she said that she teaches the class every first Saturday of the month. I have no idea where MIdtown Yoga is. However, I would love it if they extended the yoga drawing class at the Patterson.
I always feel as though I have learned something new about myself and my art after each class. Also I feel so relaxed. Well, more relaxed than I do after a 20 minute Yoga Zone dvd. This of course may be because the class is two hours long....
