Hi guys. It's me, your friend Dierdre. Remember me? I know it's been a while.
My art has really been slacking lately, and I blame it on the winter and never-ending depression that comes along with it. Sorry to be such a downer, but man... I am DOWN. Am I alone in feeling this overwhelming sadness this year? I feel like the political climate has taken quite a toll on my mental well-being, along with the other, standard, seasonal upsets. In trying to combat it and feel like a human again, I sat down with my sketchbook and brush pen to just kind of pour all my worthless, no good, very bad feelings onto paper. Just to do some kind of "creating," (however depressing or gloomy it may be.)
I will admit, however, the past weekend in Wisconsin was beautiful and sunny and warm, and I was able to take a nice long bike ride with my husband without feeling like we were going to freeze to death, and DANGIT, that was so needed! Here's hoping the rise in temperatures will correlate with a rise in my moods, and subsequently, my creative motivation!
LOVE YOU GUYS!
