This was a quick watercolor I did a few weeks ago. I’m still getting used to using watercolor, but I really liked the abstract look of it. The color use was a lot of fun to play around with. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out and framed it for my son’s nursery 🙂

A little bit of color.. “Daylight”

“Daylight” Oil on 24″ X 24″ canvas.

This is a piece I did as a gift when I was about 15 years old. It wasn’t a school project, but something I worked on during my spare time. It took months to complete. Seeing it again makes me miss painting. I feel like if I went back, it’d be like starting at square 1. But boy, oh boy, do I love color!

Before I got back into drawing (last Sept.), my favorite medium was oil. Back in the day (aka High School, lol) I used to paint ALOT. However, after I graduated, I kinda gave up on art altogether. I was so busy, balancing college/work/social life left me with no spare time for my passion.  I tried oil a couple years ago but having 2 young kids, oil is messy and stains everything, and I don’t have any room in my house nor a studio to go paint. And we may or may not have had an incident where my 2 year old got into my oils and stained carpets, couches and clothes. 😉 That is why I draw with pencil/graphite. Less mess. But as the kids get older and my love for art & drawing keeps getting deeper, I would really love to revisit the oils.

Right now I’m working on a drawing that has to do with ballroom dancing 🙂 Hopefully it’ll be finished within a week!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
