Is something missing?

“Something’s missing? Or is it that I’ve forgotten something?”
Do you ever have that feeling? Wandering around the house looking for that thing you may have forgotten. Or just the strange feeling that something’s not right in your world. I felt like that for the past 2 ½ years. Honestly at times I just couldn’t put my finger on it. You see I went through a rough patch in life. The loss of two parents, my beloved cat (jojo) and the dissolve of a marriage, just to name a few. Not being quite sure what was missing, I thought maybe its love. I must find love.  Big shoes to fill for any man, to fill what‘s missing. You see it was love I was searching for, but not the love of a man. The love of my art. Though I have been a miniature artist for many years, the events of the past few years made me lose sight of why I am an artist in the first place. My art became my sole income and I begrudgingly went into my workshop, because it was my job.  Now as if a light has been cast down on me I realize the empty space I have must be filled. And it needs to be filled with creativity.  I hope my blog inspires the artist in you. That when you’re lost, you’ll find your way back. Here’s an honest look into the heart and soul of an artist.
