I’ve been feeling discouraged lately, I want to be able to contribute to living and stuff financially because I think it’d be nice (even though it’s not totally necessary), but the winter messes with my health (ALOT) and there are times when I spend days just unable to do much, or feeling so bad that
She restores life where-ever she goes and when her light fades new life shines. Her last breath will be her most beautiful moment – her life fulfilled in restoring others to see the beauty in theirs. (16×20 Acrylic) Based on my Concept.
The last few days I haven’t been feeling really great, and so I’ve been sleeping most of the day and awake most of the night. Wanting to paint (or even clean) but not having enough energy. Tonight though, I started feeling a little better – Alex cleaned the house for me before I told him

I finished Act or Die today and the biggest lesson I learned (aside from great tips and exercises that I’m willing to put to use to get to know *myself* not just for acting) was don’t act, BE. Be present in the moment, as the character – feel, act on your internal impulses – listen
A few weeks ago I wrote about a painting in my head, I did a rough version on an art card, and then moved on to the completed version. This is the preview – click the picture to see the completion, or go here.
I’ve been feeling bad because I haven’t been able to paint due to being sick, so finally tonight, I decided I’d make an art card – a small, less detailed version of the one I’ve been mulling over in my head. I’m pretty proud of it, I think the 8×10 version will be much better
