Find the Symon? Answer at the bottom of this post, after the ***** I haven't been posting lately. I'm not even sure why. Maybe because I have been doing a lot of writing for my Paint & Chronicle prompts, looking... Continue reading

Some sketching before bed last night. I'm not sure why the face below looks so sad. Sometimes they just turn out that way. I was having trouble getting my anxiety under control. Probably my hormones shifting as my period ends.... Continue reading
