I have been gone for so long, you may be ignoring me now, but just in case you are not here is the update.
I have taken a hiatus from DA and several other things while I get my personal real life into some sort of order. I am returning, desperately needing a creative outlet, because of the stage I am at but I need a clean start to be able to combine my "real art" and my experimental art etc. With the new setup on the galleries and such I think this is a perfect time to do so.
So, those of you who would still be interested, please come find me on my new gallery here, .
So since I am trying to leave this past behind me, I will tell what is happened/happening for those who are interested, but know that I am not going to come back here and comment on it, and know that this has been a hellacious time, and I want to thank my friends who have been there patiently supporting me through all this junk. Those of you I have secluded myself from it is nothing against you, I just had to keep this close to the chest until I could come to terms with it.
OK, so it started out my husband Martin had to deal with his own issues. He was depressed and frustrated and it was coming out on me which was drastically affecting my creative flow. He wouldn't allow me to get involved in a project because it would be too much for him to handle. So on and so forth until he finally left (apparently filing for divorce a month before telling me) and then the day after I was told by papers being served he called the state and had the 3 kids we were fostering and adopting (we actually had a date and time - 8-14-08 at 8:00 am which we had been waiting nearly 3 years for).
His answer as to why? "He had to protect HIS best interest and no one was considering what he wanted, only worrying about the kids."
Well I have one thing to say to that... The kids need to be the issue. Martin, you are a big fooking boy. You can make your own choices, take yourself where you need to or want to go, eat what you want when you want and how you want... but children don't have those options, and you SHOULD consider them. The world doesn't revolve around you! Well, he ruined my life, but my parents (God bless them) are trying to do something to help out until I jump through the state's hoops one more time to adopt them by myself.
So, I am going through a divorce, lost my kids a second time thanks to the jerk I was married to for 7 years.
This is very cleaned up update, but you are welcome to watch and talk to the re-engineered to the good ol' fashioned me on my new account. I would love to have you watch me there.
To those running the groups that I will be re-signing up for the groups shortly as I get my art and things set up.
Thanks again for your patience and understanding,
