“Love is Everything”

Hello my loves,

I want to share my latest painting with you. The painting consists of two bluebirds with a cherry blossom branch. I think I might be obsessed with painting both :P. Not only are bluebirds and Japanese cherry blossoms gorgeous, but they are also symbols of positivity.

This time I added oil pastel to give the painting a little extra something. The oil pastels also added more vibrancy to the painting. I had a lot of fun creating this painting and experimenting with oil pastel and watercolors.  🙂

It is called “Love is Everything”

Fearless Peacock Painting

The semester is over and you know what that means, more time to paint:)

The watercolor peacock painting below is inspired by Eleanor Roosevelt, “Do one thing everyday that scares you”  -Eleanor Roosevelt

This quote is special to me because I try to live by it almost every day. For most of my life I have been afraid of a lot of things, so by exposing myself to all the fears and getting out of my comfort zone I know that with time my fears will subside. Presenting is one of my fears, so this semester I challenged myself and presented several times, even when I was given the opportunity to choose between a paper or a presentation project. Even though this fear is still there every single time I present, I know with time I will be comfortable speaking formally in front of a large crowd.

I named this painting “Fearless”. I hope you like it:)
