The Old Adage...

It's better to have loved, than to never have loved at all.
I could say with equal sentiment that the saying is a bunch of bullshit, or that after some time...it's true.
I haven't had the luxury of the appropriate amount of time to get over someone whom I loved, and it is unfolding quite predominantly in my new work. I am just so thankful to have this outlet. I don't know what I would do without it.

Over the years, I've had no problem creating a cleverly transparent avenue of discussing my life, the people I meet, my lovers, my family, my fantasy world and a desire to be happy through my artwork. But no one is happy all the time. Some of my best pieces have come from a dark place. Although...the majority of my best pieces are when I've fallen in love. That's my track record so far.
