Since, my last journal was starting to grow cobwebs, I figured it was time for something different. Those of you who have been following me on here for a while know I'm terrible about updating journals. It's just never really clicked with me. I kind of give updates with my deviations instead of my journal.

Anyway, I wanted to give a kind of happy, excited about the start of the holiday season kind of journal but as life would have it, my very difficult year continues even into the holidays. This past week I had to say goodbye to my beloved friend and equine partner Gateway. He was hit very suddenly and very unexpectedly with an aggressive bout of colic which caused complications with his small intestine that the vet could do nothing for and we had to let him go. While I never officially owned him, I have always considered Gateway to be my first horse. We bonded with each other from the moment we met close to 9 years ago and he is the horse that really kick started my interest and love of training horses enough to pursue it as a career. His chill, happy-go-lucky puppy dog personality taught me a lot about living in the moment and not worrying about the little things in life. He was a huge support for me in high school and even into college though I didn't see him as much then. I had talked with my instructor and was actually saving up to buy him when all this happened. I am devastated. He was in his prime. Much to young to be taken from us like this. A light that shouldn't have been extinguished and a blessing to my life that I don't think can be replaced.

To those I am RPing with or doing art with/for who are waiting for my response, I am sorry for the delay but now you know the reason why. I will try to get back to everything soon.

I have a BA degree in Studio Art with a minor in Animal Science with hopes of having a primary career in training horses and service animals. I absolutely love art though and I have my own business doing commissions, specifically pet portraits, in a variety of mediums. I work mostly in graphite pencil, acrylic paint, oil paint, and digital painting with photoshop.
