create art that allows my visions to get out of my head and onto something tangible. With the world of technology which we have access I can simply bring my iPad anywhere with me and go from sketching to painting and even using Microsoft word to write down my thoughts and feelings.
Technology can be both a blessing and a curse all in one simple day. I miss the texture of sketching on paper some days. I miss the ability to sit in a room alone and sketch out my minds vision. Not that I cannot still do this, but it tends to be less often I grab for my col-erase pencils and Bristol. Now I grab my iPad and sit on the couch, watching my kids play or watching them watch cartoons all while creating something new.
People are always looking for the easy way, and let me tell you the procreate application and brush options have certainly made for some easy tools to utilize. However it's a different learning curve. So while some digital artist can create beautiful paintings on apps today they wouldn't know how to mix a paint and a medium if their lives depended upon it. I try my best to still keep my hands in physical mediums as much as I can, while messier, more time consuming and certainly more costly it is 100% worth it for me in my opinion.
HiLo HiLo everybody!
Today I wanted to dive into why I have been renewing, redesigning and recreating this site. This site as well as my life has been a rollercoaster for me. I have had some extreme changes, attempts and adjustments recently.
For one I am focusing back on me, my health in all three zones, mentally, physically and spiritually. Getting back on a plan, on a diet plan, exercise plan, self development schedule. Ive been working on meditation, self development and anxiety strengths.
Ive never been more sure that I am on the right path, no matter what life throws at me I am on a path you become 1% better tomorrow than I am today. Ive been working on changing my diet habits. Instead of following fads, finding something that I can not only stick to but that makes me happy. I have found that in the ketogenic diet. I bake goods, like cookies and cakes, fat bombs and treats. I still eat the foods I love, meats, bacon and cheeses. However, the change in my diet that makes me the happiest is the fact I am not always hungry anymore. I feel satisfied and full more often then not. I have to remind myself to eat most days, because I am just not all that hungry and I am no longer eating out of boredom.
I am focusing on my goals again and my passions, being my own person again instead of being lost in my situation. Ive started writing again, drawing for fun, and even dabbling into photography again. There is something to be said for being emotionally stable that allows you to focus more on the things that matter, those around you rather then trying to drown out your stresses in sleep and alcohol. Yes, that is what I was doing. I was drowning out my mind and my stress in life with sleeping my life away, because then I didn't have to deal with it in anyway.
