I didn't know that the Peony represents wealth & fortune.(LOl even though there's a giant poster of it in my living room--one of those asian paintings) But to be honest, I don't like it very much. After learning it's meaning, I kept thinking about how wealth can buy a person luxury goods and the like, but it cannot buy a person happiness.
*Personal thoughts* I kept on thinking about my Kareshi's issue about being forced into the nursing field whereas he really wants to become a math teacher because he enjoys it. This summer I didn't produce as much drawings as I hoped to because I had doubts about becoming an artist as a career.My skill level in art is still very unpolished & I have no idea where I can go with it--or just how far it will take me, but it's something I have a passion for (Very thankful for my parents for their support///) Fortunately, a million thanks to the people who sent me supportive messages unknowingly of my problem at such a perfect time!//// Being an artist isnt the most financially bringing career, but it's something I'm more than happy to work with!
"Do what you love to do and the money will follow" --------------------- YAAA Okay its already 5AM!! @~@;
...You think your Artistic Skills are unpolished? OMGAWD You have never been so wrong! Over the years--You keep on getting better and better!! You've improved SO much and have become a fantastic artist! Yes--Becoming an Art Major can be tough--But tough it out! You got this in the SACK!! (> u O)b
LOL But if I'm improving that means it's still 'unpolished'// No set style yet >A<;; Haha you too! I really want to see your animations!! One day I'll go to the movies and it'll say "Story & Illustration by Victor L*" and I'll be all like "YA!! I KNOW THAT GUY!"
