Hi everyone! :wave: revamp 
It's been ages since my last journal entry so I guess it's about time I wrote a new one. ;) 
I hope you're all having a wonderful holiday, and that you had fun on New Year's!

I made two promises to myself for the new year and beyond:
  • Practice self-care. Health-wise, 2015 was by far my worst, as I had fever after fever after fever. In January, I had a fever that got so dangerously high I had to be taken to the emergency room. In February I suffered from a nasty toothache, then got sick again in the spring and every other month since, even as recently as the Christmas holidays. :-O So from now on, I'll make sure to take proper care of myself, and find ways to manage stress better. Furthermore, this will not only benefit me, but also my art, riding, and my work as an English teacher. 
  • Never leave a painting unfinished, unless it isn't working out at all and is beyond any hope. Lately, I've been abandoning paintings far too quickly, partially out of fear that I'll mess up, and partially out of impatience. I have to accept the fact that I'm the type who likes to do things carefully, and to do things carefully, I need time. If a painting isn't a commission and has no deadline, then it's absolutely okay to take all the time in the world I need! What matters is not the amount of time it took to complete a painting, but the final result. And if I get bored or impatient with a work in progress, then I simply switch my attention to another work in progress and come back to the former some other time, as long as I get it done. And that if an artwork doesn't look absolutely "perfect" or whatever I want it to be, it's okay. As long as it looks finished and I tried my best, it is done well. (:
What are your goals for 2016? Feel free to write in the comments! :D

In spite of everything, I don't think 2015 was a bad year. After all, new doors opened for me, both art and work-wise, and I can't wait to see what the future will bring! Thank you all so much for the support in the past year, and I wish everyone the very best that this year has to offer. :heart:

Big hugs, and onwards into 2016!

Yasmine Saad
My name is Yasmine, and I hope I won’t bore you with my bio. :lol:

I was born in Italy and it's where I spent the first twelve years of my life; moved to Lebanon in 2007, lived there for six years and a half, then finally moved back to Italy in 2013. Having relatives in both Poland and Egypt, I traveled often while growing up, and still do.
My two greatest loves are horses and art -- art in all its forms and horses in all their diverse colours, shapes and sizes. I sat on a horse's back even before I began to walk; as for art, when I was in first grade I refused doing school work because I preferred drawing instead. :D But it wasn't until 2007 that I started taking art more "seriously", and I took up photography in the same year.
I do paint other animals sometimes, but horses have always been my favourite subjects. I love depicting them in complete freedom, and it fascinates me that even though we domesticated horses for our own uses, the thing we admire most about them is their free spirit. I think of my art as a celebration of these beautiful animals, whose history is so tightly intertwined with ours. My dream is to become a freelance, full-time equine artist, so that I can paint horses all day long. :aww:
Other animals I love besides horses are rabbits, birds (especially owls), tigers, tortoises, salamanders, ladybugs, and snails. I've been a vegetarian since I was twelve years old and I'm gradually becoming vegan.

I can speak English, Italian, and a tad of Polish and Arabic.

Welcome to my little corner of dA. Feel free to look around! :hug:
