Firstly, sorry for my nonexistence as of late. I have had to change my diet quite extensively after finding out that my fatigue, severe heartburn, nausea and overall brain fog was due to a gluten sensitivity. It has sucked having to change up my diet so much and has been rough. I had a bit of a relapse back to the mental state I was in December and prior with my anxiety and PTSD picking back up and making everyday things quite difficult. Thankfully it didn't take six months to come out of this time and I am still not completely 100%, but I am better. That is all I can hope for and I am happy that things are finally looking brighter.
Had a few other hiccups outside of my mental health, including my wonderful labrador having leg problems that thankfully went away finally. She is six now though and starting to have stiff limbs and early arthritis. Connor ended up in the ER for extreme chest pain that would not go away just the other week and at the same time our front water pipes burst and we had to fork out $1850 we didn't have within two weeks or have our water shut off. Still need to get the dog to the vet too and one of our cats shaved (he doesn't know how to clean himself and is just all around messy). And now next Monday, Connor also needs his first cavity dealt with and it is probably going to cost us another small fortune.
Somehow, despite all of this, I am been happy enough and mentally, things are still slowly on the rise. Commissions may take a little while for me to get back into until things calm down a bit. If you still would like your spot when I am able to get back into working, please let me know! After some time away, if you are no longer interested or don't have the money to spend, I totally understand.
For the time being, I am going to be working on my painting and getting back to feeling enjoyment out of my art, so expect a lot of watercolor out of me within the next few weeks. Anyhow, hope all of you are well and enjoying spring (or the onset of a mild winter for my aussie friends). <3
P.S. I am going to try to post less work in progress shots here on DA in the future, perhaps one at most and then keep it to finished pieces. If you would like to see my progress shots, check out my tumblr linked above, as I will be posting random doodles and wips there in the future. I am also going to be getting rid of old art and start branding myself more towards traditional painting, so if you need to save an old commission or need any high rez of the work I have done for you before I purge some things both in my gallery and the PS files from my file server, please let me know!
