2014 Year in Review

It was a wonderful year. It was a challenging year.
I got to meet my brother in NYC and then ride the bus to DC.

I FINALLY met my boyfriend, Johnny Depp. Even wax Johnny Depp is hot.

I did LOTS of intense therapy. It was very painful. Healing is wonderful but it HURTS. I can't even tell you how many panic attacks I had. 
 I went to the zoo. I love animals the way most people love chocolate and peanut butter. 
I met two of my favorite bands, Neon Trees and Phantogram. I also went to some awesome shows: Twenty-One Pilots, Morrissey, I took my girls to Paramore, plus I saw Broods, Phantogram, Capital Cities, and Neon Trees.
The man I did my first ever portrait commission for years ago (family aside) was convicted of murdering his wife (who he had me paint a month after he killed her). He wanted me to "immortalize her". Of course I didn't know it at the time. Creepy!
I published two books. A silly one with my brother and a novel. It's been a dream of mine since I was twelve. Buy your copy here:
I tried landscape painting for the first time since junior high. 
And animals.
I joined Displate, where one can buy metal art prints. Check it out:
I made it into my first art directory. That was exciting!!!
Went on a short trip to Arizona. 
Sedona is freakin' beautiful!
And last, but not least, I sold seventeen original paintings and fifteen prints! Dreams DO come true, folks. :)

Congrats on a great year, even with the downs that will help make more ups in the years to come. Can't wait to see what 2015 brings for you!
