This is a long overdue post. My eyes are bloodshot and I’m pretty sure I’m seriously iron-deficient. I’m sleepy and hungry even after ransacking the pantry and having seconds for dinner.
But this is what I’ve been working on for the past few weeks. I’m still not satisfied with it but I’m pretty sure I’ve long passed the time limit most artists would set on a piece like this. It’s been reworked and revisited to the point of exhaustion and I don’t think I’ve got much else to give here.
I pushed myself way outside of my comfort zone when it came to the painting process. It meant I was often squirming with discontent all throughout. It’s really the only way to grow though, or so I’ve been told.
I wish I had more time to break down my art sessions to a couple of days per week. But at the moment, it’s just been a matter of squeezing in as much painting as I can in the weekend.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you. Not everyone is a fan, and not everyone cares. But I’ve been playing around with love-related themes this month. And I’m happy that I have my first completed piece for 2017.
It was a mad week in the office, in an understaffed-overworked kind of way. But I had some pretty cute ideas for my art. My favourite is “You’re My Universe”. My boyfriend told me he liked the concept so I’m a little proud of it. I’m thinking this could be a great piece to develop, maybe even for Valentine’s Day. What do you guys think?
If you haven’t already seen my Art Goals post, I made it a goal to work on some art every day this year. And so far, I’ve kept to it. Follow me on Instagram for more regular updates.
