I haven't been as active as I'd like to be and I also haven't been able to get out and do too much photographing in the last three weeks since we've been plagued with rain. Hence the title, April showers bring May showers. Haha. I have only seen canola flowers but I suppose that's better than nothing! Growing up in California has definitely spoiled me and though I haven't lived there in over three years I still find myself missing the weather I grew up enjoying. Anywho! Today's journal is sparked by the significance of this date for me, as it's a particularly bad one. My older brother's life was taken 6 years ago this year and today would have been his 27th birthday. It's still hard for me to grasp and is an exceptionally hard day for me to get through. So, I came to deviantART to enjoy works shared by some amazingly talented artists and drown myself in the creativity and beauty that is shared on this site. I hope some of you reading this will find beauty in some of the art included in this feature and give these amazing artists a favorite or 10 and a watch. I hope you all have a good day and enjoy your weekend.
