One night this week, I cried and cried and cried. I cried myself to sleep. I think it was definitely a mix of hormones and still being so sick with this pregnancy and having some more complications recently, too. I woke up the next morning with that puffy feeling in my eyes and felt so much better. Sometimes, a good cry is just what you need. My mom used to say, “Let it all out.” And then the tears would just start squirting out of my eyes. Fortunately, Chris fully endorses me “letting it all out,” occasionally, too. The world looks so much brighter after those cry sessions. The next afternoon, I painted the whole thing:
So many of you asked for painting tutorials and tips in our reader survey earlier this week. Maybe I’ll work on a time-lapse video of one of my paintings soon, but I am not sure there is a “tutorial” for something like this. It comes with practice and experience and patience and sometimes from a place deep inside of me. That being said, I have shared a few DIY Art projects here and would love to share more. I have been painting and studying art for 11 years and I’d be happy to share some tips, too. One that I often use for mixing dark colors with a lot of depth (implemented in this week’s painting), I shared on Instagram a couple days ago. So much more dynamic! Happy Weekend to all of you.
Psst. More weekly paintings.
