Wow. I've seriously neglected the blog. Time has slipped by and I'm a bit taken aback to realized that it's been nearly two months since I've posted anything. It's been a combination of things really. My wife's medical situation and my job search have been distractions, and certainly essential ones considering the priorities. However, it would be grossly overstating the case to offer those as excuses.
The truth is, I'm unemployed and have had ample time. I just flat out hit the wall, ran out of motivation to continue painting - or at least the ethusiasm to work on whatever things I had in the pipeline. So I took a break, dabbled in building a couple of plastic models, played computer wargames, spent more riding the bikes, etc.
This is about the last thing I painted before this fallow period, a few Conquistadors. The foot are old figures from Kieler and Loy, the rider from Scholtz.
What now ? Taking a somewhat different tack, I have in mind a new project which has really rekindled my enthusiasm. And I promise not to wait another two months to reveal the details.
