Art journal peek

Have a peek in my art journal 🙂 Click on the video below.

Why I actually wanted to show this is for the following reason: You will probably see I’m shaking a bit. Although I’m recovered from a muscle disease flare-up, there are still traces visible.
I have pain, on a daily base. Some days I’m shaky or have myoclonic seizures… But what’s the point in staying home? Most people will judge. (I had more criticism than I could handle really) What’s the point of taking meds if they turn you into a zombie? What’s the point in going to the hospital if they send you from one doctor to the other, not knowing what to do next?
My painting techniques aren’t perfect. My body isn’t perfect. But that doesn’t stop me. I’ve learned to ignore the pain and keep on doing what I love.
(And maybe my work will be a little wonky because of that but… who cares!)

    Thanks so much for sharing this! You don't need a steady hand to make great art! Art should be expressive of who you are! And I'm always a supporter of adding more wonky-ness to the world!

      Thank you yĂŚlĂŚd! Special name you have… I'm not sure how to pronounce it. 🙂 Yayy for the wonkyness! <3

        It’s pronounced “yah-laid”. 😀 Hope your summer is going well!
