Feeing strong.

Started my beautiful Sunday with an exhilarating boxing class. Today we actually paired up and did some boxing together. It’s even more fun with a partner! Helps to keep each other going.

After boxing, I worked in the yard shoveling and laying down mulch. Worked all pm. I am sore and tired. But also feeling strong. Like her. My second boxing girl.. think this is becoming a series😉

Dreaming of spring

It’s April. Which means it’s spring. I don’t care if it feels more like winter out there. In my art world, it’s spring 🌸🌹🌷🌱🌳 “Dreaming of spring”. Spring, a time of growth, birth, life. I am thankful. Combination of watercolor, ink and color pencil.

Strength From Within

SFW. Strength From Within. I finally finished painting her. Torn between leaving her unfinished versus finished. This is the problem when you like your work in progress too much. I was afraid of ruining my unfinished piece and overworking her. Maybe i did? But I still love her. Combination of watercolor painting and color pencil.

My latest obsession

A few days ago, I chanced upon a boxing class at the gym and thought why not, let’s give it a go! The minute I put on the boxing gloves, I felt transformed. Felt like a bad ass, a strong woman. It felt awesome! And when I start punching the bag,… bamm, it felt great! Especially since I had a face in mind 😂😂😂

Since i like to paint my obsessions, i decided to paint a boxing girl tonight. This is my work in progress. Drawing a figure and a profile face are both not easy for me. Took me many tries and erasing to get to this point. I definitely need more practice. But I am liking how buff she looks😉 and btw, I am aching like hell today from the boxing class. Could barely pull up my pants today 😂😂😂

Believe in myself

A few days ago, I made this sketch. I loved how she turned out. And I was afraid of painting on it for fear of ruining her. It was this fear that stopped me from painting when I was much younger.

After I posted it on social media, I received many encouraging comments from friends to go ahead and paint her. Some suggested making copies of it.

Today, I decided to break through my fear and took out my paint palette and painted her.

The colors were an experiment. Wasn’t sure how she would turn out. But layer after layer, she began to emerge. And I love her. While I still love my original sketch, I love this painted version as well.

Glad I believed in myself and gave it a go. Also thankful for all my friends on Facebook whose encouragement really helped.

Bad ass..

“They say God only gives us what we can handle. Apparently, God thinks I’m a bad ass”. Watercolor, ink and marker. First time I have ink sprayed all over the face. Felt like a bad ass right then!🤣

My foggy state of mind…

Runny nose, teary eyes, pounding headache, foggy mind… and this is my art to go with my current state of mind and health😂 i have to thank my body for waiting till i am home from travels before breaking down… was comforting to play with inks, watercolor and loose sketching. Kinda looks like how I feel🤣
