The Burrower by Moonafleet
The Burrower
Whoohoo! Two pieces done in less than 24 hours. I'm kind of impressed that I managed it. I finished this the same night as my most recent charcoal piece, but only today managed to do the proper touch ups on the photo I took. It was looking super washed out. 

I'm quite happy with this, it's a nice simple marker drawing to be added into the vet school's art auction. Hopefully it does well! :)

Miles to Go
I'm in a mad rush to get a few more pieces into the vet school's annual auction, and this is one of them! Just a very quick piece, nothing too fancy. I wanted to try something a little more loose than my usual precise work.

Probably took me 2 hours total
JJ by Moonafleet
Super quick birthday gift for a close friend of mine! This is her lovely greyhound boy, JJ. I have three exams this coming week so how the hell I had time to do this I have no idea. :I

Sitri by Moonafleet
So weird for me to have multiple paintings in such a short amount of time! And hopefully there'll be more before school starts back up.

This took waaaaayy too long, but it’s finally finished! This is alltailnolegs‘ Sitri, a beautiful Green Tree python. I tried my best to do her colors justice, but she’s really just too beautiful to capture properly, hah. 

This was painted for my vet school’s annual art auction held later this year! It’s a really small piece, only 5x7, which I think ended up making it more difficult. But I think I’m finally happy with it and I hope it sells well. :) I’ll be doing a few more pieces for the auction as well.

Journal Entry: Mon May 12, 2014, 5:11 PM
  • Mood: Distracted
  • Listening to: Welcome to Night Vale
  • Reading: The Diviners
  • Watching: White Collar
  • Eating: Mom's cooking
  • Drinking: Blue Moon

So I maybe graduated from college this past Saturday.

Oh, and got into two vet schools and wait-listed at a third.

And I am definitely attending the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in the fall. :dance:

I should have updated this journal back when I found out I was accepted, but it was a pretty crazy time so it slipped my mind. At this point I've also already found an apartment and started making firm plans about the next year, but I'm also still ridiculously excited. This is a dream come true on so many levels. It's going to be ridiculously difficult, but I think it'll be worth it in the end. But for now I'm just going to enjoy my summer before the madness hits.

All the same, it was definitely bittersweet to be leaving Berry College, the place I've called home for four years. I already miss it, with its beautiful rolling fields and many, many deer. I am especially missing the barn where I worked, and the nearly 80 horses that I took care of there. They were all my babies by the end. I know all of their names, their histories, their personalities. It's harder than I could have ever imagined to leave them, especially the ones that worked their ways into my heart the most. I know I'll go visit eventually, but in the meantime I just hope that others will give them the love they deserve. 

Dammit, I got sappy on this journal entry. I guess I'm still not over all of this change. Hopefully I'll have some art coming up instead, maybe even something that's not a pet portrait, hah.

Hope everyone's doing well!

You're welcome! *watching*
Your art is so amazing!  Makes me wanna draw and ink and paint again.  Your gift is ... "Incredible" is such a weak, inadequate word.  But comes close.  :)
