“Somewhere between handling challenges, taking care of business, and juggling responsibilities, you may have lost pieces of yourself which you long to recover. Perhaps they were buried and forgotten long ago. Rediscovering is more than just being reminded of these golden treasures. It is being able to excavate your riches by pulling them out, polishing them off, and allowing them to shine again.”- Susan C. Young
If that quote doesn't summarize the last two years of my life, I don't know what does. I feel like I got myself off the ground with my art practice and was flourishing; then the pandemic and my real world responsibilities hit. I lost the joy of creating. I was anxious about starting back up again and whether people would want to purchase my art. I wanted to quit entirely because none of it felt like it mattered. I didn't have the time or energy for any of it.
Now, wrapping up 2022, I finally am reconnecting to art as a way to enjoy myself and honor the skills I have worked so hard to cultivate. I create what I enjoy and I feel good about where I am headed in the coming year. I wanted to thank everyone that has continued to believe in me and support me throughout these past couple of years. Your support means more than you know. <3
