Here’s looking at you, kid

Really enjoyed making this piece. Started with pinks, purples and blues. It is only when I added the green that it popped and made me smile. Yes I love this piece. She is ready for the world and embraces everything about herself, imperfection and all. Here’s looking at you kid😉

It’s ok to take a break

I have avoided my art table for weeks… not sure why, perhaps been preoccupied by the unrealistic knitting project I set for myself😂 during this dry spell, the voice in me kept saying, you should be doing some art. Go paint something. You need to keep practicing or you will lose it. I gave myself pressure. But the other voice in me said, no. I just don’t feel like it. Not doing it. I am glad I listened to this voice and took a break. It is ok to take a break, even from things you like. Art is there for my pleasure, not the other way around. And today I finally felt like it. And it was fun. Now back to knitting .. I have a whole blanket to finish before daughter leaves for college in 2 months!!!!! And I just started 😱
