So today is my two year anniversary on this cool site. Thank you to everyone who has ever inspired me and also have been inspired by my work. Cheers to another year.
Was listening to Sam Smith's acoustic version of "Lay Me Down" and just painted with a few addtions in photoshop.
I read annmarie's fragmentation and fell in love with it. Great writing girl!
I took a few days to post this because I wanted to have time to gather my thoughts in expressing my gratitude.
My entire life I always knew I wanted to be an artist. I specifically remember in middle school deciding I wanted to pursue graphic design and work for an advertising agency. Fast forward to 1995, I graduated college with a B.A. in Graphic Design, moved to Atlanta, GA and fulfilled my dream, so I thought. Turns out I HATED that job, the people I worked with and just the step on everyone cutthroat mentality. I completely burned out. That experience left such a bad impression on me that I stopped creating art for 11 years! Now I did the occasional birthday invitation for my kids but that was it until the summer of 2012. I finally had a chance to see the movie 50/50, and the story really moved me so I decided to do a little research on the real man. During my research I came across HitRECord. It was if the universe was trying to direct me back to my dream because I joined immediately and have never looked back.
I have learned so much and tried so many new things all with complete encouragement from this wonderful community. Being a part of this has reignited my love for art and I have all of you to thank.
So thank you my friends.
with much love, Laura
