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.
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.
