Slowly getting back to me with art: Aug 2017 - Feb 2018

August 2017 - February 2018

This was a very influential time in that I had two short relationships that went south quick, I rented an art studio so I could do work, and started to practice art again slowly but surely!

I learned a lot about my worth but didn't really get the lessons until after February 2018.  I'm still accepting that I have something worthy to share through the expression of art!  I also found myself in two beautiful relationships in my life that have challenged me to stand up for who I am.

These pictures are in order by date - August 2017 first to February 2018 last.

The first relationship that made me believe that what I wanted was something special and 
only special people could be a part of it.

A friend that has kept with me through it all.  She makes me feel worthy of all the love I desire!

Getting back to open drawing at the Art League of New Britain!  Thank the gods.

A therapist friend who challenged me to listen to my gut and who was there until I found my way.

Rediscovering how I see myself through a reflective window at night.

More open drawing sessions to keep my sane.

A dream that I still have not painted but plan on it.

My studio.. .Yeah

A commission that made me realize that although I need practice, that does not mean I need to forget about my boundaries and self esteem.

A picture of the self in the face of sadness.

More open drawing sessions....

Redoing something from July 2017...

2nd relationship that confused me but made me again listen to my gut.

                                  Florida Trip to see my Uncles and do some work for me!

2018 Work:
All open drawing work to help me ...

Once March 2018 started, I found a path to myself and it opened the door to a new way of being.

See that story coming up soon...
