I’ve been painting a lot lately. I’ve been wanting to set up my ceramic studio, but between work and a social life it just hasn’t quite happened. Instead, while I’m teaching, I paint.
Mostly I watercolor animals. Poppies. Mushrooms. Flowers. Nature, intertwined with itself referencing a dream-state only achieved by setting your mind free of the constraints of our society. It’s fun. The kids enjoy it, and I feel like I’m finally settling on a style of my own.
So many moons.
Today I also decided to dabble in a little acrylic, and some figurative work. A portrait. This is the rough base layer. There’s some fixing to be done, but for 45 minutes of work I’m happy enough.
