Quick portrait of Indiana. New sketchbooks tend to excite me. But this one even more ’cause it inspires me and it is so small I can bring it with me everywhere. I practice a lot more than I used to a few years ago when I started my blog. It’s like I need to draw pretty much everyday to feel good. So the next step now is to find out what to do in order to work as an artist. Do you guys have some pieces of advice? Many people wanna order my portraits and I am going to do more commissions but am too scared to start a business online. I kinda never sold my paintings so I think it’s a good start to do commissions for people in my area, don’t you think?

I really miss my archeology classes. Hope y’all like this quick sketch of Indiana. ❤
‘If you’re ever gonna find a silver lining
It’s gotta be a cloudy day
If you wanna fill your bottle up with lightning
You’re gonna have to stand in the rain’
My inspiration was this wonderful song ‘Silver Lining’! Kacey’s songs are pure masterpieces. Lyrically, musically… Love her and her band. Like I’m totally obsessed actually! XD
I do believe Ozzy is a genius. And I love his version of John Lennon’s How. So here it is for you. We need more inspiring people. With a heart! And a brain too. It helps. I cannot take self-centered and superficial people anymore, especially at this moment of my life. When you get affected collectively by such a terrible attack as it happened last week here and you see no reaction from certain people, who keep on living their lives as if it was totally fine just because they didn’t know anyone who died… it’s just crazy. Going through many things personally for a year, I started to lose faith in humanity. I had many lonely moments. LOTS. FOR MONTHS. But I thought… okay, whatever. I am strong. But when I see people, in such a situation, completely lacking compassion and empathy, still obsessed with the way they look and stupid things, I don’t get it.
But hey, I will always be an optimistic person, I just have some bad days.
“How can we go forward when we don’t know which way we’re facing?
How can we go forward when we don’t know which way to turn?
How can we go forward into something we’re not sure of?“
