Most classes on Martha's Vineyard are during working hours, which has been annoying. I've dabbled with the idea of doing more traditional art. I've also been studying art history on Martha's Vineyard, which is often oil landscapes. When I saw an oil painting class focused on landscapes offered after working hours, I jumped on it.
My life as an artist really started with playing in Photoshop and Illustrator in high school. I didn't think of it as art. I just enjoyed manipulating photos. In community college it was sensible for me to focus what I had enjoyed doing and developed a bit of skill in, so I went for graphic design. It wasn't until my [undergraduate classes] that I saw computer art as a real expressive, non-commercial art form. From there I realized I need to backfill a lot of my creative education with traditional art forms.
I get into bed at a reasonable hour. Plug my phone in, lay back, and browse for just a minute before turning my light off. An hour goes by.
I check my timing to ensure I have enough time to fit my run in before work. I only have 30 minutes. By the time I get to the next road I begin to grow concerned I'm starting to lag behind. I check my clock and only 10 minutes have gone by.
It was a beautiful night on Martha's Vineyard. Almost every Tuesday I go down to the dock in Edgartown to watch my friends play music. After they play they go to a bar, The Port Hunter. You can see the bar starting at 01:47 in the video. I enjoy going and try to when I can, but being a Tuesday, having a tight budget, and likely having already drank 2-3 beers it's not always in the cards. It's hard to leave town when I have so much energy, particularly on nights like this, a night or two just after the full moon (02:12).
