I haven't posted anything in months and I've been trying to work out how to explain why, but I decided simple is best. I haven't been very well.
I went through a rough time and I got depressed.
I've managed to keep studying (though not as much as I'd like) but I just didn't feel comfortable posting anything. And I've been terrible at answering people and at generally getting anything done - which sucks, because I live for this painting malarkey and I've met awesome people along the process.
I'm feeling much better recently and I want to get on with life now please thank you, and hopefully work out ways of staying well and dealing with stuff rather than hiding away if the problem comes back.
It just doesn't make sense to hide it. It's personal but it interferes with everything and it's the sort of thing that needs to be talked about for anyone to get better.
I have a few paintings close to completion so hopefully I can show you artwork again soon.
Until then I'm posting studies on my blog (here).
I also posted some horrible artwork from when I first started learning to paint, then I got too shy to tell anyone about it. Silly. You can see it there as well if you want.
I'm really sorry to anyone I haven't replied to, I really hope you can understand.
Ooops I changed my name as well!
Wynniemaru was old and didn't feel right anymore. It feels very strange.
