Return from Health hiatus

I know, I have been away for awhile, but not without a good reason; health.
In the past 6 months, I devoted all my time and energy on healing my body, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in June and have been in the hospital a few times. Through lots of research, I learned that by changing my lifestyle and eating a Paleo diet, I have been able to maintain good health again. It was a pretty rocky road but I am on the mend now.

I tried to come back to my art several times to help me get through some of the darkest moments, sometimes it helped, other times, I just didn't have the brain power to do so ( brain fog). I am looking forward to the new year to come with plans for new beginnings. I started exploring oil pastels and oil sticks and think my oil paints will get to come out to play very soon. The fumes that associated with oil painting made me take the long break from them after the arrival of my children. Now with my condition, I definitely didn't want to be around toxins either. Lucky for me, I didn't have to look too far to for an answer.
