To Be a Child Again

I'm not dead!

Uhm, wow.. it's been what? A year and a half since I last uploaded something on here? Woops.

Anyway, I've been busy, both art-wise and just in general. I've been working my butt off trying to improve at everything and myself as a person. I don't know how well that is working out but I'm trying and I don't think I could have possibly gone backwards.

This piece was done in about an hour with watercolors on bristol. Senior year (and still, even now) was extremely stressful in an emotional way. I wasn't ready to begin the process of thinking about my future. I mean, I have always thought about it and tried to plan and set aside a safety net. But when it comes right down to it, I had no idea what I was doing and when I needed to start looking at my future I flipped. I just didn't have a clue.. what did I want? How much was too much to spend on college? Should I try to pursue art or should I aim for something "stable"?

Only now, after summer break do I finally get the admissions process, what I need and want from a school and to a much greater extent how to understand where I want my life to go in general.
