I still have a ways to go but I would love you 'constructive' input on my art to get me to that point.

This time of the year holds a special place for me. Not only because of the religious implications but for the fact that this is the anniversary of my own renewal.

The beginning of my sobriety (the anniversary of my remission from depression).

In truth, I probably should have done this last week but I though today would suit better. I can't remember the day exactly but it was during this season, during a church service even, that I was freed from my unnatural haze. It's going on 6 years now. The road hasn't been easy and there have been times that I feared a relapse but God has provided for me greatly, strengthening my resolve, granting me numerous small victories to keep my morale. The biggest being allowed to return to school and pursue my art, which I wish I had the confidence to do before. But it's never too late, there is nowhere to go but forward. And I am truly thankful He allowed me to see this day and not give in to stupid temptations. I strive every day to find new joys, let worry and stress roll off my back and fall where they may. I'm focused on not wasting the opportunity. So many don't get a second take.

On to works...

Nothing really to talk about. I left for home the Friday before the week of Easter. All I really did was sleep, eat, and watch tv. I did get to do some shopping! I got some new clothes, a few beads, and some rolls of string. Yesterday, I went to my first home town wrestling fight. It was pretty hilarious! And I did get to see TNA's Gunner up close. Very nice!😌😙😏I went with my mom and nice. It was pretty fun.

I got here, back at school, at 11am, sat around a bit, went to the studio to place all my stuff back (I don't know why I keep bringing this home when I don't seem to work on them), and got started on a portrait of another person that's due tomorrow in Life drawing. I really wish it wasn't due tomorrow. I really don't like working in charcoal. 😕

But, I'm heading to bed in a bit and hoping to see a full 7-8 hours. I usually wake up once during the night, but I've only gotten 3 hours of sleep today. So, I'm hoping that helps.

Well, that's all for now!!

Much Love and a Happy Holiday!!!

P.S. Contemplating another contest/giveaway, be on the lookout!!😙
