COCOSKIES | An art blog: July 2015


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!
