Furloughs and Passing Time

"Self Portrait"

Unfortunately, I am a government employee and currently on furlough along with thousands of other employees. Today is day three of this furlough and who knows how long this will continue. So, while I wait to see when I can go back to work, I am going to pass the time by working on some new projects. I spent the first day of furlough walking around downtown Charleston, taking pictures, and feeling like I could conquer the world with all this time I've been given. Then day two hit, and I came to the realization that it could be weeks before I am able to go back to work.  I started the day going through my photos from the day before and quickly lost all motivation and cracked open a beer. Needless to say....I didn't get much accomplished yesterday, but I did manage to get the laundry done, so the day wasn't a complete bust. Today I decided to play around and try something new. I had fun working on this composite piece and really liked the way it turned out. So my goal is to step outside of my comfort zone a little more each day and try something new. I hope you enjoy these new pieces! Who knows what I'll come up with next...
