I have been away from deviantArt for the better part of a year (with a few appearances from time to time). I have been focusing on living a creative, sacred life by integrating my art and healing work.
I have quite my "day job" and focused all of my time, energy and soul on creating a life where my work is myself and for helping others. While I have more creative freedom, I do have deadlines and schedules to keep. The GREAT part though is that I can manage my time as needed, day to day without someone else dictating my time to me! That and I am doing what I love, CREATING ART!
With all that being said, I have had to cut back on many smaller projects I had going and also on all the online "Spaces" I inhabit. DeviantArt has been the hardest for me to "Let Go Of". In the 9 or 10 years I've been here I have made so many friends (both virtual and in real life) and have had many, many, many networking opportunities. I've learned a lot and taught a lot and I grew as an artist.
So, after much debate, I decided that while I do not have the time to stay present here I do not want to delete everything and leave. I will be keeping my galleries and everything intact but I won't be here interacting and connecting as I once was. Below you will find links where you can follow me and stay in touch, and I hope to see some of you there, in my other spaces.Creative Sacred Living Magazine"www.gloriagysy.comFacebook Art PageSign Up For My Newsletter
