I love you all, folks! That's all you need to know.
I adore my medium. I love working with leather. I believe in pushing the boundaries of what you can do: in your art, your field, and each of our personal skills, goals, dreams and traits.
I believe in pushing, not because we HAVE to, or that we Must or it is RIGHT, but because one LOVES, so deeply, so ecstatically...! Find that art, find that project that keeps you up all night. Find that pattern that make you SO excited to fall asleep, just to wake up again, eager, to craft, to paint, to pick back up, to see how it dried overnight....
That, for me, is leather craft. That, for me, also, is gardening, horticulture, landscape repair.... but Deviantart is for my winter-work; the crafting, the drawing, the long stories, deep dreams, and quick flickers of a vision, caught onto paper, born into life. So: the deer. So: outrageous helmets.
May too, soon, I'll share colored-pencil work. But that medium takes even twice as long as the already laborious leather crafting!
Thank you for visiting. Thank you for pushing, believing and loving. We're all one big family on one big plant; the global-garden, Earth! All of my leathercraft is born out of a solar-powered workshop in Montague MA, where we also operate a small, local plant nursery, growing native fruit trees, nut trees, berry bushes and wildflowers to be planted for free throughout towns and cities on damaged/degraded land. Free food for all. Make this life and make this planet the most beautiful experience you could ever dream.
I get down sometimes too, but that's all part of the beauty. I just don't stress when it happens, and allow myself to get back to what I love: Life!
