In the mean time, I thought I would share a little bit of an update on what I have been up to these past few weeks! First off, my beloved baby boy, Spencer, is doing well. As I have shared in previous posts, I adopted him about 2 months ago from the MD SPCA and feel in love instantly. Unfortunately, I did take him to the vet for the first time about a week ago, and because we don't know his exact age, they ran a senior panel on him. Although he seems to be a comfortable and happy boy, they did find that he has Kidney Disease, otherwise known as Chronic Renal Failure. The vet believes we should at least be able to fight off the worst for a few years, but he will never live to his full like expectancy. This news was devastating to me. But I know that Spence was given to me so that I can help make the best out of the few years he has left, and I will be damned if I don't spend it spoiling him rotten!
I have also begun to do oil paintings again. I was dabbled with being a painting major my freshman year of college, and although I absolutely loved painting, it did not work out. I had a terrible professor that seemed to very much dislike me, and my art, and instead of encouraging me and teaching, he more degraded and insulted me. In my final class with him, I explained that he made me hate something I once really loved, and I never knew that was possible. I did not take another art class in school.
However, this summer I suddenly felt the urge to paint again, so I went out and bought all of the pricey supplies that go along with oil painting, and began to paint. It has been a bit of an awkward journey back to being as comfortable painting as I once was, and I am definitely not there again yet. But I am working on it! Hopefully I will get up the courage to post a few pics of some in the coming months, but not quite yet!
Anyways, that is a little update on my life :)
