This may be my last journal entry of DeviantART. I'll try not to make it too long and sappy, but I can't make many promises.
dA has always been the place where I felt I could find myself. And I did, among the creative community of artists, visionary people touched by the fire-like beauty of the horse. But my life has moved me in ways that are lovely, complex, and sometimes downright fucking stupid. I think my place in this world is bound to come upon me, and some things and life are unfortunate stones that we just can't carry. I've tried to hang on to digital art forever and it has finally slipped from my hands. I've lost the ability to sit down and work on a piece. The world must be trying to tell me something, I think it's been trying to get my attention for a long time, and only now at the beginning of my senior year am I beginning to realize.
I think a part of me is a manipulator, a writer, maybe even an illustrator. But another part of me (a more dominate part, I must admit) is a human. Other than that I'm an artist, and I wouldn't have found that part of me if it weren't for this place and the aspiring community. I want to thank everyone out there who inspired me, my watchers who proved ever faithful to the good pieces and the bad ones. You are all so supportive, and I don't know where I might be without a glimpse of your art or the line that you commented. I appreciate everyone here, you're all wonderful people, and I'll remember you wherever my art takes me.
I'm going to carry my camera in hand all the while, and try to have photography as my focus if I ever decide to make my way over this art-block mountain. I'm ready to do things that are different and moving, reach into the corners with open hands and find all the dust I can capture in just one lens. I'll get another account up and moving... Maybe the link will be my next journal, my last one as FloweringFatality.
Hopefully you all will join me on my next adventure though the eye of my camera's lens, I can't wait to start this new journey.
With all the love,
