So...its been a rough two months...my father has passed on and my relationship took a terrible turn and now my Uncle has had a stroke and may not recover....its been like swimming against a raging sea and getting knocked in the face over and over. I have spent a lot of time alone, when I am not with my children and this has been hard, but somehow has strengthened me. I have grown determined to make something of my art and I will. I have a few goals left...so I am making new ones....in my recreational life as well. This will be the summer when I finally go camping, fishing and hiking. I have been reading a lot as well...and this is helping my mind make sense of the things I cannot comprehend, such as violence and behavioral disorders in people we love. My art is starting to evolve as well...I am carving a 5 1/2 foot tall tiger and I am beginning to get the silkscreen stuff down...and I am now able to do it all from home. T shirts and stuff will be coming soon and fierce.
