Bloom True: Week 4

This week I decided to get rid of the flower and bird. They just felt a bit too predictable and safe.

Bloom True: 3 Week

The chaos continues. I continue working on my two canvases. Some stages I like them, some I don't. Some parts I like, others I don't.
I do really like the hanging leaves on canvas two.
Who knows what will happen next...or where they will go from here...

Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap - Celebrate

Once again, I participated in the Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap. This time, the theme was Celebrate. I didn't love the theme as much as I did last time (discover), so I struggled for inspiration. I kept it pretty simple, and I'm sending this off to the UK.

Bloom True - Week 1

This has been the first week of Bloom True with Flora Bowley. So far, we've put two layers of paint on two large canvases. I've never really painted a large canvas before, so it's all new to me.

After the first week, this is where I'm at. It's a bit challenging for me since I don't know the next steps, and how this is all going to come together, but I am practicing being brave and trusting in the process and just knowing that they will bloom into something I love.

the art of scientific illustration

Last weekend my mom and I took a lovely afternoon class, looking at insects and learning a little bit about drawing them. It was something completely different, and very fun. I'm very happy with my insects.

this beautiful butterfly is my mom's work.
