I've made a pretty big decision. I've decided to make art my life. My whole life. As in my career, my hobby, my passion. I haven't gone to art school yet but it's on my horizon. Actually, I have an economics degree. And for the five years (yes, five) it took me to get that degree, art was my stress-reliever and my distraction. But it was whispering in my ear that whole time, pulling me in to its snare, and it's finally trapped me. 

Art is my life. 

Since I've come to this realization (which happened after a long period of artistic stagnation followed by a big life change) I've made it my mission to get better at art. And I think, just maybe, I'm on the right track.

This is one year of improvement. One year. Of mostly self-guided improvement. Check out the signature tags- 2014 to 2015. 
And already I can see aspects of the new one that need improvement, the areas I need to work on. 

But something's changed and I can feel it. I am more serious about art. I study it more intently. I practice it with purpose. I draw and paint as much as I can. A huge part of my improvement had been from watching tutorials on Digital Tutors. Seriously, the subscription is worth every penny. 

I'm excited to see where I'll be in one more year. Heck, I'm excited to see where I'll be next month. And mostly, I'm excited that art is finally taking center stage of my life. It's about damn time.

No problem! It was so good to read something like that. That's a huge reason why I stay on dA and love engaging with it- stuff like that keeps me going and in love with art. Thanks for posting it :)
