When the Brush is on the other foot. Blog 49

Welcome to Miles Frode's Tuesday Art Blog #49

June 9th 2016 

Being an Art Addict, Miles has a hard time NOT making art,
So Most of this Blog is featuring Paintings Made using BOTH OF HIS FEET.

This is the re-write intro.

Having gotten perspective on how my blog is seen by others
 i am choosing to rephrase how i communicate my struggles. 

Thank you, to all of my friends, family, patrons and appreciators 
who engage with care and concern, not just interest in what Art i've been making.

I am planning to make a small FYI type video to share 
what i am physically dealing with, what tests and specialists i've seen
and what i am doing to get diagnosed and ultimately heal.

featured in this blog are paintings i made between the last blog,
when i was still just pushing through my pain 
and then what art i could make as i could push no further.

I used to see this blog being more about the Art
rather than about me, The Artist.

I think this perspective fit not only with my abilities (or lack there of)
to evolve a more connected story (due to constant pain and nausea) but
it fit my feelings toward not sharing and connecting via the digital means...only in person.

I hope my new attempts to start sharing in a different way reach you in a more sustainable place...
resonating a better balance for all of us
