Congrats to me! The art blog is officially 13 months old! Happy Blog Anniversary! I can hardly believe I missed the one year anniversary at the beginning of this month, but catching it now on the 31st I made it just in time. Do you remember my first blog post?? It was a year ago I was starting my yellow study and just launched my art career: that is, getting a business license and framing my work! Those early posts were certainly minimal and sparse with information, but a fun trip down memory lane.

Next week is another huge milestone: my first exhibit. Being a professional artist has really changed how I view my work, and the processes I go through creatively. I’ve had lots of help along the way through people like Art Biz Coach and friends like Pamela Slaton. Oh, and I published a book: AWAKE!!! I also have a burgeoning fan page on Facebook that has now become the seat to memes combining my thoughts and photography similar to what is found in my book. If you aren’t already reading those, you should like that page and not miss any more inspiration on your timeline!

I’m so proud and grateful at the same time because it’s not just the month of May that introduced me to yellows and the power of the solar plexus chakra, my amazing boyfriend, or the start of my art business, it is also in May that I got clean and sober. In reflecting over the past month of anniversaries and the transformation of the past 3 years, I can honestly say that I am living the life of my dreams. Thank you for reading this blog and supporting me and the art I create!
