Today was quite rough and I don’t want to fully get into it…but being an adult is really hard sometimes and when I am reduced to a blubbering pile of myself crying on my bed it doesn’t seem like I’ve come all that far from adolescence… but I have… maybe not tonight… a dear childhood friend @simsduke sent me this picture and it was taken in a life changing moment… I won ‘Best of Show’ at the league art show and it seriously changed the course of my life… sometimes we crave the validation that we are on the right track and sometimes it comes in the form of a giant blue ribbon and sometimes it comes in the form of a perfect mentor at the exact right time… or red cowboy boots or a big commission order… look at this little girl… so unsure of herself and so proud to be noticed… . . . #artist #artistsoninstagram #bestofshow #1999 #throwback #lifechanging #oilpastel #reallife #emo #coloradoartists #validation #howdarling #chasingdreams #loveyouself #heartbreak
