Last few days have been rough for me. Yesterday was my last day at the school I worked at for the last 5 years and turning in my room keys and ID card was just surreal, even more after a week of not sleeping nearly enough. Being so tired and trying to keep all these emotions under control is very hard.
My apartment is also a mess because, as many of you already know, my husband and I are working on moving to the house we will be living in for a short while in order to save some money (our monthly apartment rent is more expensive than the house payments will be). We have been selling furniture that we don't need anymore to family and friends so that the whole moving situation is easier. By the beginning of next month we will already be living in our new home.
So with all this going on, I have not been able to draw or paint much at all. Really all I could do was finish up the pencil drawing of the girl screaming that I am posting here and have already posted on Instagram. The watercolor lemon painting and the feet drawing were actually created last week. I decided to not really force myself to produce artwork this week because it has been one of the hardest I've had in a long while. For my mental sanity, I decided to focus on giving closure to this phase of my life in order to start with the next as productive as possible.
Thanks for reading! You can expect much more frequent and useful posts starting next week, as my personal artistic journey finally begins at full blast!
Here you'll be able to find helpful information and resources to help you improve your art skills as well as encouragement to stay happy and productive as your journey progresses.
