You are lovely. :hug:
astarayel Featured By Owner May 7, 2015
So are you! :glomp:

I miss art. And you. I need to sort out my priorities...
Riemea Featured By Owner May 7, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I miss you, and your art. :glomp: I have about three WIPs I've been working on forever but can't seem to finish. :paranoid:
How are things going for you, dear?
astarayel Featured By Owner May 8, 2015
I miss you too! I have two WIPs that I desperately want to finish, but they're pretty ambitious projects. In the meantime, I'm hoping to get back in the habit of sketching.

Things are great! It's getting fairly warm here (apparently we bypassed spring and are heading straight for summer). Work is good, and married life is fun!

Tell me about you! How was your epic trip to Canada??

I hope beauty chases you while you chase it, and that wonder and majesty leave your quest for glory very successful.  
I hope you find many fun things to do, many wonderful sights to see, and many extraordinary people with whom to interact in positive ways.  
May the unexpected always turn out to be good.  
I hope this year is one of successful efforts to improve, new friendships made, old friendships renewed, and may you and those you love have a wonderful ride together around the sun in the year beginning with this day - HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW 2015 YEAR! by Dark-Arctic-Fox
