A lil break, Daffodils, Don't Give Up
Welcome to my newsletter where I share my personal creative process. I hope to inspire you to pick up a pen, paint brush or spatula and create something spectacular.
Good evening friends. I’ve been gone for a little while, taking a sabbatical from my sabbatical. There’s been a lot of change in my life this month and it’s been difficult (...actually, impossible) for me to make space to create art and writing.
And it’s OK. I’m OK. I’m not giving up on my goal to become a full-time artist and writer. I just needed a little break. But I’m back, and ready to create again.
New Painting on my Site: Daffodils
I painted daffodils, featured in my header image. This was a housewarming gift for my bestie. I brought this on a plane with me all the way to the other side of the country. I’m currently writing an essay about her and this painting. Stay tuned.
The painting is featured on my site in the link below:
Gentle Reminder: Don’t Give Up.
Yes, the image on the left is the early version of my Casper painting.
I started blocking out his general shape with solid blobs of color, then slowly painted more and more layers of detail on top. The fine hairs are the very last layer.
Always trust the process, keep moving forward, and never give up.
Thanks for reading, see you next time!
Happy Creating, Elizabeth
