I really can't say what it meant to me to come back and find new watchers, or so many likes to my different pieces on here. It made me smile. And it made me feel slightly for guilty for just vanishing but then it's been a crazy busy few months.
I got a new job, one I absolutely love but it challenges me and means I work 8:15 to a little after 5 most days. My mind has been full with learning about insurance, getting ready to take my licensing exam. I started my new job on May 20th and haven't had much time to look back since. I'm not sure why it takes so much more than my previous one, perhaps because it's more of a career where the other one was merely a job to do. I've also expanded my yoga practice, so my days have been incredibly full. I've been struggling to come back to art, feeling like since I have so little time I'm not as good at it, that I'll never improve the way I want to and that I have little to offer. When looking at what some of my peers from school are doing now I feel like a amateur and a fraud.
But... it will never get better if I don't try to slip back into it. So I'm working on finishing up an inking commission I had over the summer. And I have a few personal projects I want to start dipping my toe back into as well. I've been slightly hampered as with my computer crash I no longer had a valid PS on my system, something that will be sorted out shortly. And my traditional media supplies will be returned to me next month by the ex fiance.
So fingers crossed this winter will start having more updates from me on the art side of things.
