As you've noticed, I haven't been around much lately. There are two reasons. First, I've had some personal experiences that demanded my total attention. Second, I took on a part-time job with late-night hours, so I've had less time.
Things are better now. I've decided to stay in Cincinnati. My family life is good. Also, I have a fire under me to succeed as an artist. This year, I'll emerge either with a firm commerical art career, or a "Brian" art project that I will be completely proud of.
I apologize for not telling you sooner. I kept thinking I'd see you all at a meeting. Also, I sometimes forget that I have friends that care and worry. ...and I'm not good at sharing personal stuff.
So, this was tough to write. Thanks for reading. Please contact me if it's been too long since we've talked.
