Art Improvement - 2003-2023

It's that time of year again ...

This year has been a tumultuous one, but we made it through. After years in the black, struggling not to drown, caught in a hopeless, downward spiral, after staring down the abyss and barely making it out alive, this might be the first time in a long time I've been able to remember what the light feels like.

I've had fun with friends. I've reconnected with family. I've had FUN with my art and ENJOYED creating again.

I'm ... happy? It feels unnatural and I feel like if I say it out loud it will all disappear again, but we're going to be okay.
