this is a drawing of something that sits in the corner of my room on my toy every night I don't know what it is it looks like it only has one eye and looks like it's wearing a hoodie it didn't seem bad so I left it alone but I'm gonna try to talk to it and see what happens what do you guys think
This is a rather different and bittersweet post from me, i'm not very good with words (i'm better with pictures) so please forgive me, but i'm going to give this my best effort. Last night was my last shift in the hospital i've been at for 3.5 years as the time has come for me to leave. I have had some brilliant moments here and i've had some moments that are permanently etched into my memory and have truly affected me. I have grown as a person and as a professional, I struggled with the transition from student to qualified, and without the support of some truly wonderful people who I am lucky enough to call friends as well as colleagues, I wouldn't be the practitioner I am today. Their support and encouragement through some really hard times in my life, meant that I could see the value in my work and lit a fire in me to to want to do even better and to make even more of a difference to the people I meet. I couldn't have asked for a better team of people to work with, laugh with and jump out on in the middle of the night and I'd like them to know what a difference they've made to me and my time at the hospital. I want them (they know who they are) to know that I might not be there as much any more, but they've shown me so much support and kindness that I wish there was a way I could repay them for all they have given me. I'll never forget you guys and I hope you don't forget me!
I don't normally title any of my images, but if I were to title this piece, it would be 'New Beginnings', it's time for me to go now and that's what this photo represents. It was taken in the operating theatres i've worked in for so long, but it's a position for me i'm not normally in! It's a change from me in so many ways and one that I very much enjoyed working on. I really feel ownership of this image, from design to execution each part of it had to be planned and thought through and is very different from my previous work and its processes. At the same time it marks a shift in where I see my creative work developing, the process of taking this image has encouraged me to pursue more creative portraiture alongside my landscape work. Love you, bye xoxo
