3/ I told him that I cared how he grew as a person and that he was free of any mental hurdles to ask for help when he needed it. It made me surprisingly emotional as it felt liberating to express that. Like he was... free to be.
Gift portrait for my wife’s birthday. I painted this in Photoshop using my new Monoprice tablet. It was my first art piece created using it and I am absolutely ecstatic about how responsive it is. Being able to draw directly on my screen within a wide format is a game changer for me as it felt far more intuitive than drawing with my Intuos. “Hand/eye coordination” be damned. Maybe I’ll review it at length sometime.
Anyhow, the biggest birthday hug to my wife for taking a chance on me.
