A Light in Dark Places (and good riddance to 2018)

“May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out.”

It has taken me a while, but I finally begin to feel that I’ve got the ground back under my feet. Just knowing that, in another day or so, this year will be over is surprisingly liberating. There is a lot that 2018 left me and that I will continue to deal with, but it feels immensely gratifying to say, sod off, 2018, you’re history. I’ll deal with stuff, but those horrible months are never, ever coming back.

I finally feel up to saying how grateful I am for my friends, online and offline, who have helped me through these dark months, and whose faith in me has wavered far, far less than my own. I finally feel that maybe it may have been appropriate. All of you who have continued to support me in 2018, in word and deed, THANK YOU! Have a wonderful 2019. We’ve all earned it.

  1. If you don’t mind me asking, what type of scanner do you use to upload your art? The colors are always so vibrant without looking over saturated.

    I hope you have a happy new year and I’m glad you’re feeling better.

    • Happy New Year to you too!
      My scanner is extremely old – a CanoScan Lide 90. It scans way better than newer models, so I’m pretty scared to replace it some day!
      I do a lot of postwork in photoshop though, to make the colours match the actual painting again.

  2. Happy new year! I’m looking forward to a great year with great art from you to enjoy!
