The other day I re-listened to the talk Turn on Your Light by Sharon Eubank. She talks about a lot of great stuff in there, but this really stood out to me:
Being happy doesn’t mean to slap a plastic smile on your face no matter what is going on. But it does mean keeping the laws of God and building and lifting others.8 When we build, when we lift the burden of others, it blesses our lives in ways our trials cannot take away. I have a quote by President Gordon B. Hinckley placed where I see it every day. He said: “You don’t … build out of pessimism or cynicism. You look with optimism, work with faith, and things happen.”9
I came across my first timelapse drawing video on YouTube a few years ago and was immediately captivated. There is something so fascinating about seeing a piece of artwork come to life. And put that process to awesome music and it’s a recipe for pure bliss. Some of my favorite videos to watch are from ThePortraitArt’s YouTube channel. He does some amazing work!
Some of you already know this, but I’m an artist at heart. I’ve always gravitated towards art, and I’ve been drawing since I was two. Pencils have always been my tool of choice, but in recent years I’ve been fascinated by digital art.
