Hiya! It's been a long time *whispers* Is anyone still here? No? Good.

In 2012 I became an art major. It was awesome. I took loads of art filled classes. I learned all of the basic rules. I'd never studied art before. Even in high school, I didn't take many art classes, and never a drawing or painting class. I was too embarrassed of my lack of skill. Anyways, I took these college art courses very seriously. I spent a lot of time in the studio and worked really hard to get everything perfect. Unfortunately, this drew a line in my creativity. I am not a go by the rules sort of artist. What I love most is abstraction. I learned all the proper ways to draw, but I lost what I loved about painting. I lost my spontaneity. This led to a bit of a crisis. Art is very personal for me. It is what keeps me out of my dark place. I lost my joy in painting and I fell back into that hole.

The last two years have been a whirlwind. I stopped painting abstracts, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, and I developed a chronic illness. Stress stress stress. All adding to the hole.

For the past few months, I've been trying to get back to painting the way that I love to paint. I haven't been so satisfied with my work, but I'm getting there. I'm happy to say that I am writing to you now with hands covered in ink and acrylic paint. It is oddly comforting to be covered in paint. I missed it. I have some things to upload tomorrow. If you're still around, I would love some opinions. I missed DA. It is time to get back on the saddle. Ye haw! :iconcowboyplz:
