Welcome to my art blog!
I decided to leave Instagram and Facebook because I was spending more time scrolling through other people's artwork in my sparest of spare time instead of experiencing the joy of creating it myself. Ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil, I have loved drawing and painting over any other spare-time activity because it's my happy place; it soothes and relaxes me. I lost focus of that when I basically substituted the joy of making art with unconsciously trying to live vicariously through others' experiences and artwork. Distraction, coupled with a degree of pressure and sensory overload (especially in connection with business) are additional challenges from social media that I don't need or want. So, for me, it was time to make a break. A fellow artist and friend, formerly on Instagram, shared an enlightening post about an artist's decision for leaving social media which echos my sentiments. Reading this was the final push in making the decision.
Thank you so much for taking the time to connect with me through my blog. :) Feel free to share the links to your art pages/blogs as well, as I would enjoy keeping in touch that way.
