so since this post i have debated whether or not i should post some of my art. my art is extremely personal and i am very sensitive to criticism (just ask my hubby) so it was a difficult decision. however, i decided it wouldn't hurt to put up a few images.
these images are from my high school portfolio. some of them may be darker in content. at the time i was really struggling with severe depression, the after-effects of my childhood abuse, negative personal relationships, and the regular normal teenage angst. please, please, please, remember that (most of) these images are my inner turmoil put on paper. this is how i dealt with my demons. if you are disturbed, i'm sorry, really i am, but please do not be disrespectful. (i didn't scan any of the more graphic and disturbing images on purpose.) if i did not have my art to turn to there is a very real possibility i would not be here today to show them to you.
i apologize for the poor quality of these images. they are low-resolution scans from copies made from slides of the originals. the original artwork is MUCH too large to scan. i thought about taking digital pictures of some of them but the battery is dead in my camera. which is why the only images i have at this time are from my junior and senior years of high school; they came from my AP portfolio.
