Can’t believe I’ve had this kit for over a year and I’ve only just painted this wreath design from @folkit.co - it is so easy ☺️ Giving it a bit of a make over with @decoart chalky finish in Treasure to fit with @johnlewisandpartners idea of having a Sapphire themed Christmas this year. What a gorgeous colour palette to be inspired by!
The conditions have been too choppy for catching a good surf the last few weeks. learning how to become a better surfer 🏄🏻♀️ of life, I must keep at it, be patient, and be uncomfortable on my board in the water. it’s that diligence and willingness that keep me interested rather than getting out of the water and going to the hotel bar. my metaphor of learning to surf with learning to paint seems to fit well as any learning process would. Painting, like many creative arts, including living life, needs positive thinking but also endurance, patience, and appreciation of the process over time. planting the seeds and building the muscle for tomorrow’s 🌊. John Cage said the work comes from the work. Have the faith that the seed will grow but water your plant every day.
to think you can jump double Dutch just because you have decent rhythm is for sissy’s who haven’t learned to fall, dust themselves off and stand back up in the kitchen. A lot of mixed metaphors to take if they make sense. They do for my two thumbs tonight. That’s all I can do and I’m good with that.
I’m blessed to have these 1st world opportunities to chatter about. #learnersmindset#learningtopaint#aslnyc#selfacceptanceiskey#nycpainter#surfyourpersonalwave#keepflossing#themiracleinthesweatisthesalt#stayire
Having a @juliabadow inspired painting afternoon. I have been wanting to get into acrylics for ages and have been loving her art so much that I just thought I would give it a go! It is amazing to realise that even abstract painting takes a lot of skill and understanding about how to pair colours and blend and layer! Also it was just super therapeutic! Thanks Julia!
And thanks to @safmajidi for this amazing @oliverbonas tea pot! We love it so much!
Colour // My paintings experimental day one. With the remarkable ➕ my all time favourite painter and artist @beckyblairartist // So nice to get into the paints and create blends of beautiful colours alongside such a wonderful bunch of women! ❤️

Well this was a learning curve
Learning to be bold with background paint, trying to mix the right colour, it's not exactly how I set it out to be but is it ever?
Well I've messed around and this is end result...
