I just want to start off by saying thank you all who have supported me over the years. Its been a great ride. Also to watch this forum grow into what it is today, and thats the superpower of the forum world for airbrushing. All due to the great people here willing to share and help people down the right path. Im glad to call many of you that ive gotten to know my friends. So as i stated before in my Tom Petty thread, ive been doing alot of thinking about calling it quits on airbrushing. So ive decided im gonna retire from it. We all have dissappointments along the way. Ive had my fair share. From being told my art isnt worth my asking price, to feeling my art is boring because of being told it isnt worth what i think. And im not high priced at all. Ive probably shorted myself the whole time. So be it. I just care about the time i put into something and to have that wasted really upsets me when it takes time away from other things. I also did have quite an altercation awhile ago with a certain person, who isnt a member here i dont think but i know some of you know who he is, that went as far as threatning to come to my house. When i told him that would be a mistake if my family was here, he said he would kick their heads in. I have screenshots. That crosses a huge line with me. Just wanted to put that out there cause some of you support a guy who says bs like that. Plus i think he smeared my name a bit just to be a punk, but if he wants to go that route i will smear him even more by what he said. Sorry that whole situation still makes me see red. As i reassesed it all in my mind, i put all the negatives aside and think about the postitives. Which ive been able to do quite well from the loss of my two babies. Cause thats what i had to do. I got into this as a release from that nightmare. Never expected to go as far as i did. So im quite proud of where i have gotten in this craft. Being self taught, being able to help others out, and most importantly touching people with my art from all the memorials ive done over the years. So i can say at least ive done something. It wasnt a total loss. So i came out ahead. So in conclusion, ive found that im happy with letting it go. I accomplished more than i thought i would and stand proud. Ive got other things im also interested in and have been doing that are more beneficial to me in earning something from it. Being where i live there isnt much of a market for airbrushing anyway. Doing all of it at one time is just way too much for my plate. It will always be a skill thats in my back pocket if the need for it ever arises. This forum has been a part of me for awhile and just felt to those that care, you deserve to hear my reasoning out of respect from me. Again thank you all for the support and kind words through my time here.
