A piece very close to my heart.

haven't drawn in awhile due to deep depression from terminal illness and loss of the love of my life so i gave up on art and almost on living itself. i put alot of time into this picture over 60 hours of labor and when it was over i felt a vast sense of joy with the love i've gotten on social media. thought i would share it with you guys as art has saved my sanity.

Re: A piece very close to my heart.

I was wondering what had become of you ... I lost someone a while back and found that drawing her helped me come to peace with it all. Art or creativity in general can be very healing. Motivation is a difficult thing to overcome ... I'm currently in a slump but I am hopeful that it will work it's way out before too much longer.

Nicely done. From the heart, no doubt about it.

yeah hit a pretty rough patch but im back around now, art is very therapeutic i was putting it off because of how much of a slump i was in. then once i got started everything just seem to ease up, im sorry to hear your going through it as well. i wish you the best in overcoming it.

Re: A piece very close to my heart.

It's a lovely piece, and I can feel what you are going through, I have also been in a massive art slump since losing both parents and being diagnosed with non hodgkins lymphoma cancer all within the space of 3 years.
It's hard to do the things you love such as drawing when in depression but it's amazing how much it helps you to recover once you do actually start to draw again.

Re: A piece very close to my heart.

Agreed with the above comments. you have a very unique style and if drawing is a solace for you it could better than any medication a doctor can prescribe!

Re: A piece very close to my heart.

sorry guys just noticed I never posted the redrawing I did for her . I read all of your comments and they really resonated well with me I appreciate all the insights you guys shared. art is defintly the greatest medicine as quoted above . it's the only thing keeping me grounded in life. this was me redoing her damaged art work I did for her before. and I learned alot since the first time I actually have a few live streams hours long drawing it
