I'm Back!!!

Sorry I have been gone for awhile, but I have been busy making some serious changes in my life. In October I started a very strict Dr. supervised diet. Starting this diet before the holiday's took a lot of focus on my part, causing my artwork to take the back seat. I also have been working out 4 times a week and ran my first 5k a few weeks ago. As a result of this lifestyle change, I have lost a total of 55 lbs. I can't tell you how much healthier I feel (physically and mentally). I was so ashamed of the way I looked that I was very depressed and was getting to the point of not wanting to leave my house. I knew a change had to be made and I'm so glad that I finally took the first step to a healthier life. I still have some more weight to lose, but I feel I now have the tools to make it happen.

As far as art goes, I just got back from Artfest in Seattle and I feel re-charged. I had a great time and am so inspired by all of the classes I took as well as all of the artwork I saw. The challenge for me is to find balance in my life. To make time for my health, art and the other daily responsibilities in my life. I'm sure you all know what I mean.
