I am such a creature of routine. Just as it seems like I will get some of my life back, and feel a bit more like an artist again, it suddenly looks like that's not going to happen. I've gone through many emotional stages over it, and maybe I'm somewhere between sad and acceptance. Sad that it feels like a step backwards for my passion, but acceptance because this new life is so different and interesting! As of this moment, the circumstances officially seem Not Bad.
My body and my brain beg to differ though! I am aching. I have to eat pizza every day (eek!). I can't carry a thought from one moment to the next and am very spacey and forgetful.
I think I'm through the worst part of adapting this new life pattern.
This month's sketching theme on patreon is Patterns, by the way. I like to add very simple patterns to my paintings a lot! I don't have an official impressive explanation for that yet, but I like the idea of collecting new basic patterns to choose from in the future! Come join us.
Hello! I'm Melissa, and here you'll find some behind-the-scenes footage of an artful life. Won't you join me?
