This week has been something else. When the road gets bumpy I always turn to herbal tea though. Lavender Lemon Balm or Chamomile Lemon Balm with lemon and honey always does the trick. 😀
Inspiration is taking over my soul this week. My little sister Aylin and sunflowers are a part of this inspiration. My sister is the sweetest little girl that I have ever met. I am not only saying that because she is my sister, but her actions have made me come to this conclusion. Her heart is nurturing, positive, and caring. In this painting I represent her beautiful caring heart with sunflowers.
I have an entire week to myself, so I am going to use this time and enjoy what I love doing best, painting. Now that I have this extra time, I realized that I have not been painting for myself. It has been a long time, I don’t even remember the last time I sat down and started to draw or paint for myself. So yesterday, I painted for myself. I didnt worry about what it would look like, or what message I was trying to convey, I just painted with no judgement. It was extremely relaxing given that all the pressure was off my shoulders. What is very fascinating about yesterdays journey was that when the pressure to create a beautiful painting was not on my mind, my creativity flowed naturally. Every stroke was not premeditated, instead it flowed right out of me. The paintings also took less time.
Here is what I painted in my book. Enjoy:)
“Go Where the Road Takes You”
This is a bluebird flying to its destination, wherever that may be.
“Where the Road Takes You”
This is the first painting that I worked on last night. I painted the cherry blossom branch first and then it seamed right to add in the eye. The rest manifested shortly after. I love how the road is coming out of her and the bluebird is coming out of the road.
I hope you enjoyed my paintings:)
