As much as I feel like I need a change I still feel a bit hesitant to leave certain things behind, most of all family. I have 7 nieces and nephews and I know Skype and phone conversations just won’t be an adequate substitute for showing up and playing in person, but it’ll have to do for now. I’m thankful that family is supportive in my move and I’m sure the expression “absence makes the heart grow fonder” will make Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter even more enjoyable for me. I will still work on paintings inspired by the Philadelphia, PA region since I have several works in progress but I will shift focus to find new inspiration along the North Carolina coast as well as offering my pet portrait services everywhere in between. Of course I will also miss the trails I am familiar with in PA but there is something really exciting about finding new places to run. I hope my friends and family are aware that I'll miss them, but find comfort knowing I will be on somewhat of an adventure in the south and I will be back to visit sometime soon. I wish everyone best of luck in everything life decides to throw their way.
