May

I haven't posted because I haven't been painting and it had been weighing on my soul. Arguing with my inner muses and self-doubt. I owed people paintings from a giveaway that I held in, gulp, February. I just couldn't meditate in that creative space, and so I let them go until I could. Finally, I just had to put a brush in my hand so my ass and head would follow. I started on Tuesday evening when my husband came home from work, and began painting and it flowed, and I wanted to paint more. I painted until 1a, then woke up and began painting again until I had to leave the house, then came home and finished the paintings I had sitting there. In total, from Tuesday until this morning, I painted eight illustrations. Some were watercolors I had to do over again until they were what I wanted, but here is a sampling:

I love those pictures, especially the middle one.

Following from your 'circles' post, these are just right. I love them all, but the top one is so fun. I hope the creativity keeps flowing, and you are able to have time to do all that you want.

Isn't it interesting once the brush is in hand how the art flows out? I'm glad you are painting again.
