Plant love

Mixed media: watercolour, pencil crayon and black acrylic.
A few days ago I read an Andy Warhol quote that really seemed to resonate with me. It went like this, “Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”

The more I read it, the more I began to embrace it. I think sometimes it can be difficult creating new work because you worry too much about whether people will like it. And if you think about it too much, you end up getting nowhere. And this isn't just limited to art work, but blog posts too! It made me remember why I started my blog, my primary goal was never to impress anybody, but simply to have a place I could see all of my work together, a journal. With that in mind, here are some tropical plants I painted!

Hope you're all having a great weekend!

Blog freebies

Free for personal use.
Today I've been messing around with black paint and it's been surprisingly therapeutic! I had no real final image in mind, I kind of just wanted to polish up my brush lettering. Plus I'd been meaning to create a new 'home' button for my own blog anyway. While I had all my paint out, I thought I might as well create a few others!

I would love for you guys to use them on your blogs. I think it would help give them a more personal touch, especially on sidebars! I'm actually planning to incorporate a few into my layout some time this week.

If you decide to use them, the only thing I ask is to link back here if anyone asks you where they're from, also don't claim the images as you're own. That's basically it! Enjoy!

One last thing, I've got to ask, has anyone else finished Season 3 of OITNB yet?! What did you think of it? I regret binge-watching it, because now I'll have to wait ages for season 4!
