Falling to nothing. I kneel and am broken. Pain courses through bones from the words left unspoken.

Waiting for nothing. My arms fall with bruised fists held tight. Inside is hope, a small, safe flame burning bright.

Becoming nothing. I can't open my hands for my fire will leave. My hands, pale and soft, clenched so tightly crack and bleed.

I am nothing. I scream and cry but can't stop my fingers from breaking. My small flame is extinguished, my soul is left empty and aching.

I want to feel nothing. Rusted staples litter this dirty floor. I hold my smile in place with the metal you promised I wouldn't need anymore.

We are nothing. I smile and am forced to pretend. Forced to walk this darkness that will never have an end.
Nothing
It's been a while since I've written from a broken heart.

I've been working on this for months off and on. I got to her curly hair and was overwhelmed. I will eventually get back to it. I forget how happy I am with how it's coming along.

This one has been finished, but I don't have a photo of it. I'll get to that when I can.

Thought of the day: This too shall pass.

My last journal entry was almost an entire three years ago. I haven't been very active here lately, I haven't really drawn much lately. Life was doing a good job at getting in the way - A life that I clung to in hopes for stability, even if it dulled who I was.

That chapter of my life has ended. My relationship ended. He and I were together for 5 years and he broke it off rather nastily. It made me feel that my time putting my love of art and of myself second was am immense waste. I didn't really talk about it. I didn't plaster it on social media because, really, it hurt way too badly. It has been a couple of months now, I'm healing. I'm happy, most of the time. I realize that when I set time aside to simply create that it brightens my mood. Even if I just play around with some digital sketches of some made up characters. I lost a part of myself that I'm brushing the dust off of. I let him define me, I let him dictate what I should be proud of myself for. Now I'm me again, or getting back to her. The clumsy, air-headed, bubbly girl that he made me feel ashamed to be. 

A coworker of mine said to me today: "You are such a happy person." My initial thought: "Yeah, I am." And that made me smile. 

Happy holidays and warm wishes.

I've started coloring this but the leather has become more of a task than I thought it would. I've been working towards making this character less cartoony and have been really happy with it.

I'm Annette, or you can call me Dom if you prefer. I'm 29 years-old and have been drawing since my small, toddler hands could hold a crayon. I'm pretty nerdy, and dorky, but lovable.

I'm mainly a traditional artist, portraits mostly. I'm used to pencil and charcoal mediums but lately I have broken into digital art. My gallery is pretty varied, take a look and tell me what you think!

I'm still learning and expanding on my talent so any critiques or comments are greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my page.
