Thank you so much for all the words of support and encouragement, I appreciate it so much. I am blessed to have so many wonderful friends and kindred creative spirits in my life. I needed to find perspective over the last week and realize that although times are difficult, I am not alone and things could always be worse and for that I am extremely grateful.
I am also grateful I put in an order to upgrade my phone a week ago, because I managed to drop my existing one in the toilet saturday night. I was wondering if this was the universes way of diminishing some of the guilt I was feeling about spending money on an upgrade right now even though my phone was cracked, lol.
I made a point of taking a much needed break from obligations this weekend to make some art and process the turmoil I’ve been going through. It’s always the best way for me to work through things and come out the other side in a stronger more positive place. I’ve had so little time to make art this year, this is much over due.
The illustration above is a small detail of an image I am drawing on fabric with Copic markers. This is intended to be a base image that will probably end up pretty obscured once I start painting. It’s a pretty elaborate drawing to end up covered up, but that’s ok, I am hoping little bits will show through here and there in the finished piece. The important thing is it’s part of the catharsis, the imagery and symbolism I put into the work helps me to take the intentions in like a meditation and lift my spirit.
I’ll post more pics as I make progress.
