Dear One by Enamorte Dear One by Enamorte
It's been a long time since I've done any major AE pictures of any kind because I'm still grieving, STILL, and I just couldn't bear the thought of working with the characters again because it would hurt too much. Silly, I know. I drew this sketch of Fae several weeks ago and gave it up because of that.

HOWEVER, because I am still struggling with a block, I turned to this for something to paint because I absolutely must have a painting to work on at all times or else I get frustrated and just generally unsettled. I'm glad I decided to pick it back up, because it turned out rather well.

It got me all nostalgic and mopey, though, and I was whimpering and whining like a little bitch throughout the entire process. Well not literally, it was all in my head, but still.

It feels exactly like being on the rebound after a bad breakup, where you've got this hole in your heart and you keep looking for someone else to fill it but nobody can ever be good enough. You really want to just go back to the way things were before, but it's impossible; they moved on, and so you have to move on, too.

I'll stop right here, although I could go on, because you don't need to hear all the details of my imaginary friend troubles, and I've probably already made myself look like a doofus by harping on and on about it. So, yeah. CRIPPLING SENSE OF LOSS CONTINUES.

Oh yeah, and I think of all the faces Fae has had in my paintings over the years (due to both my own weakness in the area of likenesses and difficulty in making up my mind), this one is quite possibly my favorite. :heart:

WOW ummm...dang...do you know how to put more than one emotion on? Cause you got talent A LOT of talent, Enamorte, I can't find a word that describes how amazing your work is. This is beyond any other art that I have seen, and I think I can say this for, not just me but for many others, that your art has touched many hearts.

You really want to just go back to the way things were before, but it's impossible; they moved on, and so you have to move on, too." exactly how I feel right now. Looking at art helps me cope and get through the day. I'm very thankful for artist like you although struggling still make art so that people like me can have something to look forward to. you're an amazing artist.

Thank you so much for the kind words. While I do enjoy making art for it's own sake, knowing that it means a lot to others is very encouraging, especially when I'm having a tough time like I am now. I hope that your heart soon heals from what you're going through and that there are happy times ahead for you. In the meantime, I am happy to keep painting to give you and others something to enjoy. I wish you all the best. :) :rose:

I must have accidentally deleted this while cleaning out my message centre, but this is really lovely (not only saying that because I love purple). :heart:
