I’ve been up and down and actually pretty busy for the last few weeks.
I found out a couple of months ago that my landlord was putting the condo I live in on the market. So for the past two months I’ve been on this anxiety ride. I’ve been going crazy looking for places to live that I could afford AND that would allow pets. I have several after all. Needless to say, living in Miami sucks if you are looking for a decent and inexpensive home. Everyone renting seems to think they are renting you a palace and seem to want to charge for one.
Trying to take it all in stride, I began working on art again. After losing the passion for it shortly after losing my entire portfolio filled with drawings and photographs during Hurricane Andrew back in 1992, I finally found it again. I picked up my sketchbook and began working on drawings and working on developing my own style again.
Things are looking up. I made three sales since last month, and have two commissions in the works. I also found out my condo is no longer on the market, as my landlady called me and said she just wasn’t getting the right offers for it. So, with the pressure off, and knowing that I can leave on my own terms next year like I had planned I’m a little more relieved.
