Sad News

I haven't posted here because on March 27th, Merle, my best friend, husband and soulmate, passed away. I am in shock, and have been going through the days on auto-pilot. Thankfully, Merle passed away in his sleep, with me lying beside him, sharing his pillow. My daughter, too, is having a rough time dealing with this loss. Her natural dad passed away when she was 8 years old. Now, for the second time she is experiencing the pain of loss of her poppy. They had an incredibly strong bond.
I have tried to keep busy with the paperwork and other business matters which need to be taken care of. I am not sure when I will resume making art, I have found it therapeutic in the past, but lately, it is just too hard to draw/sketch with tears in my eyes.

I'm sorry for your loss. My dad passed away in February of this year and it has been surreal. Hope you are doing well. Glad to see that you are drawing again. :)
