Updates galore!

Well, I realize it's been awhile since I wrote. And with things that have been going on, it's been very difficult for me to get motivation to do much of anything. My motivation I notice comes in spurts. I know I was doing very well for awhile and then after I fell and hurt my ankle, my motivation.........well it just left. It was a huge shock to me and I felt it just took everything out of me.

Other things I won't go into too much detail, but of course there have been family issues that have been very challenging. It's very difficult to watch someone throw things away and nothing you can do about it.

Another big thing that has been difficult is a dear sweet friend of mine recently passed away. And when I mean recently I mean last week. He was diagnosed with leukemia about a month ago and just lost the battle. It just happened too fast. It was a big shock. I've been home and haven't been able to see much of my friends lately and it's been kinda lonely. Yes I love my family, but my friends are very dear to me. And I do consider them family. I'm happy that I got to talk to him a little for the last time, but it still hit me pretty hard. I haven't lost a friend in years and it's just another reminder that anything can happen. To anyone. And you can't ever plan for it. And that's what is so hard. You live your live day after day and things just happen. 

As a child you never think about stuff like this. Everything is supposed to go smoothly and you live your life everyday without thinking about all the hard stuff. And then when you are an adult, you realize how much pain and hurt is out there and it's so hard to understand and cope at times. I know this blog is mainly about art and happy stuff........but I really feel I needed to write this. Life can be great and wonderful. But there are times that you will get a HUGE slap in the face to remind you to not take things for granted.

Live your life. Enjoy every moment. Do not take people for granted. Remind your family and friends their worth and how much you love and appreciate them. Because if you don't, it will hurt more that you haven't had your chance to tell them. 

If you were able to get to the end of this, you are awesome. It's things like this that I put in my art. These things are part of my soul. I can't express everything I am feeling in words so this is why I have such a love to create. Because I can express everything I want to on paper.

I promise not all of my posts will be super sappy and sad, but this is who I am. And if you are going to buy art from me, you should at least understand why I do it and why I have such a love for it. My life, my experiences, my friends, family, everything.....this is what makes me ME. And this is what makes my art so special . Because in every piece, I'm putting a little of myself into it. 

I hope you have a great day and remember of all that you have.

My lovely friend Bree, me with blonde hair, and my late friend Noel. R.I.P
