Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Wednesday, April 12, 2006


I am anxious. Gorky has a dance performance tonight. I have watched her perform many times and never felt nervous. This time however, she was so nervous about everything that I couldn’t help but get nervous too.

The show is a little different this time because it’s a bigger venue and part of a citywide, month long Mozart celebration. Gorky also choreographed one of the pieces in the production and, to top everything off, a lot of friends and family are going to be there.

I dropped her off at the stage door a few hours ago. Then I went home, showered, shaved and put on my best clothes. Now I’m sitting here anxiously waiting for it to be time for me to leave. I got ready way to early.

I couldn’t relax so; I decided to whip out a quick illustration to take my mind off the waiting.

“Anxious” was draw on a scrap of multi-purpose copy paper, then cleaned up and colored in Photoshop.

Do you ever get anxious for other people? Do you want to leave some love?


  • Love and sending soothing vibes to you and Gorky!!

  • Anxiety..... Yes, all the time! But it's part of Life! And normal to be anxious for the one you love. Let us know how it worked... Hope though you put some hat on that very naked cranium of yours... :)
    Love to both of ya!

  • Oh My! I think I get more anxious for other people that for myself, especially if I care for them. Maybe it is a control issue. I don't know, but yes. Very anxious, indeed.

    Hope the performance turned out well for Gorky and her dance troupe.

    BTW, you look quite dapper in the tie. ;)

    Much love to you!

  • I came on this late. I know things went well last night. I know she rocked!

    I think we all worry and fret for the ones we love. You're a good man.

    kisses and love for you both.
