Honesty





There's something to be said about having alone time, even if you're alone quite a bit. I'm alone most of the time, but there's something different when I know for sure that I'll be alone for awhile, with no possible interruptions, and nothing I absolutely have to do. There's a difference between the two, I swear. The latter is my favorite, and that's what I spent the latter half of my week doing. It was great too, because Friday evening brought my brother and his girlfriend back to town. I got to take some more exciting photos, because I'm going to have a niece! It's so exciting, and I can't stop saying that word. My family has been predominately male my entire life, so another girl is a very big deal. Watching my brother shop for clothes for his daughter was something else.

These paintings are slightly calm and slightly anxious, and that pretty much sums up my state of being lately. It's possibly just hormones, but it's unnerving nonetheless. The funk that I was in a couple weeks go hasn't completely gone away, but I'm trying to get that energy out creatively instead of staying in bed and accomplishing nothing. Progress? Sure. I'd honestly rather not have that feeling at all. I'm sure some of you can relate.

We'll get through it. I hope Monday is good to you.



I've been styling sets with Yoins on Polyvore. You can check that out here.
