It has been a long time since I've been on DA. It's been a long time since I've done what I love, which is conceptual art. I've spent the last year and a half doing what I don't like, graphic art. Graphic art pays the bills, but when you don't like it, a part of you slowly dies inside. I am still doing my job, which is full-time, but I'm now able to scale back a bit of my time on it and work a bit on the art I love to do.

Which brings me back to DA. :)

I hope to be able to spend more time here. I've missed the fine arts terribly, and what better place to see fine art every day but here! So I am back to the board! Back to my drawing board and back to the DA board! Even if it does mean only once a week. At least I'm still HERE. :)

DA has changed a lot since I've last been here. So many new features! It'll take me forever to figure it all out... Oh well, one day at a time. :)

Unfortunately today is actually a work day for me, so I have to head off now. But I look forward to seeing everyone's art again!
