I am sorry to everyone for not being around lately. I have had a very hard, painful and stressful year and as a result have lost a lot of passion for drawing and writing.
It is only fair for you all to know why I have been gone. My mother passed away from cancer this year and it left a hole in the hearts of everyone involved, especially my stepfather and I who cared for her at home until her last day.
Needless to say I have been very, very down lately and my passion for drawing has pretty much gone, although I am now slowly getting back into sketching and have actually painted two pictures.
I do hope to finish all the things I have promised people over this year, but please forgive me if I am gone for long periods of time. I am having to learn to live without the most wonderful and loving person I have ever known and it is a very hard road.
I shall continue to look for inspiration even in the darkest times.
Remember to give your parents a hug everyday and tell them how much you love them
