Digital Energy Art "Playful"

“Playful” by primalpainter
This is a close-up photo of my wall sculpture “Renewal” that I manipulated into abstract digital energy art.  It reminds me of those spinny things on sticks that we used to play with when we were kids. What are those things called?  I know it’s not “spinny things” but …..Oh yeah, pinwheels!  (Had to ask my boyfriend because his brain isn’t as whore-moan addled as mine apparently is….I tell myself it’s whore-moans, not age, so let me have my illusion!)
I’ve been procrastinating putting these prints up for sale on my Etsy and Artfire sites.  My excuse is that I’ve been researching keywords for the titles and trying to define what these images actually are, but of course, that’s just my excuse of the day.  Are they Fine Art? Digital Art? Abstract Art? Energy Art?
I don’t know if other people research their keywords, but I read somewhere that keywords are really important for your SEO (search engine optimization).  I use the google adwords tool to research various search terms in order to see how many people actually use those words in a google search. 
I’ve found what appears to be some awesome keywords, for example digital  art gets 165,000 searches a month which sounds great.  But when you google digital art there’s almost 55 million results, which means my listing would be on page what? 40 million?  Geeze, somehow I don’t think people are going to go past page three or maybe five, let alone page 40 million!  Soooo……..don’t know, don’t know……   Even Energy Art which would be very specialized, niche oriented and gets 5,400 searches every month has the whopping 23 million results. What the…..?! Really? 
The ideal scenario is fairly high search numbers, say 9,000 searches per month, and less than 100,000 results.  A person might actually have a chance of getting on the first couple of pages with those odds assuming they maximize their keywords in the right places in their listing.
Oh blah, blah, blah….  I hate all this mumbo jumbo technical crapola of selling on the internet.  How about a different version of “Playful” to recapture my wandering mind.
“Playful Daydream”
I actually think I like this one better than the first one.  Good Gawd, what’s happening to me?! Since when do I like something that doesn’t require sunglasses to protect my eyes from it’s loud, in your face colors?

How about this one…….
“Playful Romance”
Hmmm, interesting….I like the colors……and I used to be way into diagonals but now?  Not so sure anymore….Wow, I really am changing…maybe just for the time being, we’ll see…..  That’s the thing about this digital energy art, it seems to reflect my energy flow of the moment.
Well, I’m off to nurse this brutal migraine I’ve had for a couple of days.  First, let’s try a little humor medicine, see if that works on migraines:
LOLOLOL, why WHY do I find that so hilarious?  Poor kid…..poor, silly, freakin’ hilarious stupid kid.  I’m starting to think I’m a little twisted in the humor department……
And, it didn’t help the migraine physically but a good laugh is always good mentally, even if it’s for the twisted reasons of “habenero induced silly boy agony”.  Bad girl, Laurie, BAD!!
Later,

"Healing Energy" for Japan

“Healing Energy” by Primalpainter
“Healing Energy” is digital energy art created from my wall sculpture entitled “Clearing the Chaos“.   I created it today in response to feeling helpless.  I held my intention steady on sending healing energy to all those affected by this terrible disaster during the entire creative process.  I don’t know that it will help, but it sure doesn’t hurt.
I need a break from the news, it’s really starting to affect my energy level and mood.  My boyfriend has been watching the news nonstop, and I’m about ready to throw the tv (and maybe him) off the balcony.  I wouldn’t do that, though, I like my Wednesday night shows, and he’s the cook in the family, can’t toss the cook off the balcony.

Desperate for a break from the whole end of the world, worst case scenario mentality, I found a couple of videos to lift the vibe a little.

Is it wrong that I find that hilarious?  Heheeeeheeeeeeeeeee!  I bet that lady’s pissed that her son put that video on you tube.

How about another one……
That looks like fun…….It makes me imagine hopping around in a tuxedo at a serious cocktail party. lol
One more short one
lol
Ok, I feel a little better, have a great day!

Professional? Me? LOLOLOL

I had a terrible nightmare last night, one of those where you wake up with a pounding heart, heavy breathing,and a generalized feeling of alarm (no, it wasn’t a sex dream involving oompa loompas or scary clowns).
In my dream, my hair was really messy and I was wearing my usual  jeans so heavily covered with every hue of paint I own that they’re really stiff, and I can only bend over  from the waist while keeping my legs straight. Then a disembodied voice, sounding suspiciously like Julia Child says “It would be-hoooooove you to present yourself in a more pro-fessh-ional manner.” 
First of all, that voice……(shudder) and second of all,  who says behoove and what does it mean and third of all, professional? Me?   I’ve pondered the wisdom of this advice, so in an effort to present myself more professionally, I present you with this video:

Take that Julia Child…….How do you like me now!.
Rebelliously yours,
Laurie

LOL Monday

Warning:  If you don’t like hilarity, Richard Simmons, Whose Line Is It Anyway, and possible risque content, view this video at your own risk.  If you’re a LMAO kind of person and aren’t easily offended, this video is freakin’ hilarious!  Some might find it to be in bad taste, but one person’s bad taste could be another person’s Dove Dark Chocolate, so who knows.

I had already written this entire blog post for today, had some really great stuff in it, too, and somehow it just…..disappeared!  Frankly, I’m a little nervous about where it went, because I’ve had some “uh oh” moments already this morning.

 First, in my clumsy attempts to upload a different video, a video that was  much  worse than this one in terms of inappropriateness, I accidentally posted it on the Etsy VAST team blog.  Now as awesome as the VAST team is, that blog is mostly about  two dimensional fine art.  I can just imagine their shock and dismay if they were to wake up this morning, check out that blog and there’s a  video of “the world’s drunkest guy” on there posted by none other than primalpainter!  Good Gawd!  Now that was a close one. I think I got it off of there, but I can’t help but wonder where that other post went…….

In my defense, I was going to title it “Just Say Noooooo” or put some other “Don’t be a Stupid Drunk” spin on it, but I decided that maybe it was too inappropriate even for this somewhat unserious blog. (Although I’ll probably show it to everyone who comes over today because it was hilarious!)  I’m starting to become suspicious that I have junior high mentality……not that there’s anything wrong with that.

In other news, I ordered some prints of my altered art photos from adoramapix.com last night so that was exciting, although  I have no idea how they’ll look as prints, or if the resolution is right, or the “whatever that is” is correct, or if “that thingy” is at the right setting, or blah blah blah blehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…   Huh, I’m sensing an attitude of some sort…….

In a perfect world, I would learn new things by osmosis.  All that technical jargon and understanding would just be painlessly absorbed into my head without any of the rolling of the eyes, pulling of the hair, banging of the head on the table, stomping around, locking myself in the bedroom to protect my loved ones from my horrible wrath, and last but not least, the gnashing of teeth. (Gnash, that’s a weird word, guh-nash)

It almost sounds like it’s Monday……

Have a good one,

Laurie
