ArtofAllenMorse's Profile Picture
Allen Morse
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
United States
Visionary, adventurer, philosopher, mercenary, poet, and victim of squirrel treachery. I have been shot once, stabbed twice, and thrown out of bars in fourteen countries. I have fallen in love and been heartbroken on three continents. I have seen true evil, and true goodness; I have been a sheepdog, a father, a husband, a husband (again), a caretaker and a care-giver. Every day is a blessing and a struggle, every night's sleep, a reward.

Tomorrow is a promise to no one; even wise men die. Live like you mean it.
Somehow, I managed to pass 100 Watchers and 10,000 page views, without noticing. So, before I let it slip past me again:


I am especially humbled by the attention, given the fact that I have been woefully unproductive for the past 18 months or more. With so little new work to post, the idea that the old stuff is still piquing the interest of this community is heartwarming. That being said, I am painting again, my studio space is (while still a work in progress) nearly complete, and I finally found the charger for my camera's battery pack-- all of which means, new work will be coming soon!

I am currently hard at work on an allegorical piece, which can be seen in its developmental stages on my Facebook fan page, and should be completed within ten days of this post. After so long away from the easel, I am basically re-learning a lot of what I once took for granted. Painting skills are most definitely perishable! But, and this is pretty important, by re-learning my skills I have been able to avoid renewing many of the bad habits I used to be guilty of. I have also had a lot of time to think about what I want to accomplish as a painter, and about what sorts of subjects I want to paint. I'll be going into that in much more excruciating detail at a later date, if only because I like to think that maybe another painter/artist who is facing similar struggles can benefit from my mistakes and discoveries.

Also: I am waiting on images from PassionateCutie in order to begin paintings for a collaborative effort that she and I have discussed. The hold-up was initially on my end, and by the time I had my trash sorted real-life had decided to land on her with both feet. I'm looking forward to her first set of photos; her boyfriend/photographer has an excellent eye, and her imagination promises to make this collaboration an inspired project.

So, there it is! Please check out my Facebook page and follow me there as well, if you like; I post a lot of stuff there-- studio shots, works-in-progress, candid stuff-- that never makes it onto this page. Also, my website has been under construction (read: devoid of content) since I started transitioning into new subject matter and technique, but I expect it to be up and running once I have 3-4 finished pieces in my "new" approach.

Again, thanks to everyone for your continued support and interest. The last couple of years have been tough, and your validation of my efforts has done much to keep me on-track. My humblest gratitude is all I can offer in return.
