Happy Birthday, Tinkie!


I'm such a proud Mama... eight years ago, my little girl, Tinkie, was diagnosed with Liver Disease. Typically a fatal illness, we've continuously invested everything imaginable to ensure the quality of her life, her survival. From weekly doctor appointments and handfuls of daily medications to the small fortune that quickly accumulated with each and every blood draw and biopsy. Some people might deem it an absolutely foolish notion to devote so much time and effort into their pet... but I'm not one of those people. She's a beloved part of my life, and against all odds, today we celebrate another birthday with her.

Happy Birthday, Tinkie!

Congratulations, and Happy Birthday to Tinkie.
Some people don't understand how meaningful a pet can be, almost like a child. I've seen that kind of relationship for my sister, who has never been able to have children. Her husband has been out of the country completing his schooling to be a doctor, and that dog has really saved her from being lonely.
As a note of interest, they purchased the dog together, so I believe that the dog is also like a piece of him that remains.

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
