It was on December 26, 2009, that my brother Bruce put up his first blog post. He followed that up with about half a dozen more, then stopped.
Then, almost two years later to the day from that first post, he posted again -- and now he's started to do it regularly. I couldn't be happier, as it appears that the last two years spent haranguing my brother to get serious about his blog have paid off.
(I haven't really gotten on his case too much… I think. I've just been, uh, encouraging him to post more. Yeah, that's the ticket.)
Seriously, I am really looking forward to seeing what he does with this thing. We live quite a distance apart from each other, and don't get to hang out nearly as much as I'd like to, so this could turn out to be a great way to keep up on a regular basis with what he's up to, especially in the development of his art projects (painting and photography, mostly). I hope he puts up lots of stuff about his process, and shots of work in progress.
Bruce's willingness to try new things and produce lots of stuff has always impressed me. I am proud to be the owner of four of his paintings, all of which hang in our house. No, wait, make that five (I forgot the awesome "Mr. Spock" one he did for me two Christmases ago… how illogical!).
Please join me in welcoming my brother Bruce Laird into the blogging realm. His life will never be quite the same again! -- PL
