I haven't posted any art lately since things have been so crazy: buying a house, Gavin and I renovating it ourselves in an impossibly short time frame, finding myself working on an unexpected overtime schedule at Zoic...basically barely having time to breathe. All the while I find myself stretched to an emotional limit and, as one of my favorite songs puts it,
"Nobody told you the best way to steer when the wind starts to blow, and suddenly you're a stranger."
So, I guess it's no surprise that when I finally pick up my pen to start a drawing something like this comes out. This is one of those situations where I had no idea how I was feeling until I make something, and then looking at it my feelings have sudden clarity. Often these occurrences are the best artworks I have ever created, and all of them have been unintentional and life changing for me. I guess I just feel lost and overwhelmed and the biggest things I thought I was sure of in my life have suddenly become strange and unfamiliar. Now that I know why I feel the way I do I can start making decisions to alter the situation and I know that with determination I will make it through. I have certainly overcome some tricky obstacles in the past and this is no different. So here is to looking forward to brighter days!!
