I mentioned on Monday that I was going to challenge myself to make art every day this week. Here’s how I did!
I had so much fun with this painting. The glass jars were a fun challenge. I painted this based on a photo, whose source I can’t find, but you can see it here on Pinterest.
Polish and Pearls
On Tuesday, I grabbed my two favorite nail polishes and my favorite jewelry for a still life painting. The nail polishes are Essie’s Ballet Slippers, and L’Oreal’s Greycian Goddess.
Peach Peonies and Pink Roses
On Tuesday night, I skyped with my little sister, who recently got engaged, to discuss her wedding invitations. I couldn’t help but get started on it the next day! These florals are inspired by this bouquet.
Yesterday was probably my best painting day of the week. I was feeling very discouraged after receiving yet another rejection email for a job I felt very qualified for, again without the chance to interview. Painting took my mind off my troubles. It’s great therapy.
Coffee Table Style
The painting of the girl is based on this Kate Spade striped Celina dress, and the peonies and books are based on this photo, which is from SF Girl By Bay.
I don’t have anything to show for today yet, and honestly, I’m not sure I will have time to do any drawing or painting later today. It’s shaping up to be a busy weekend, but hopefully I’ll be able to take a few minutes to de-stress with my pencils and paints.
Did you enjoy my art? Follow me on Instagram for the behind the scenes, and if you really like my style, I’m considering offering prints of some of my paintings in my Etsy shop, so stay tuned!
