Before I got into cards and scrap booking I painted some acrylics, but mostly watercolors. I painted a lot. This is also before having twins.
Lately I’ve been very frustrated with my job search and consumed with guilt because I miss teaching and would really like to go back full time, but maybe I should wait until the twins are in school? Needless to say, I haven’t found a job so it looks like I’m home longer. But that’s another story. I’ve been in a funk, I’ve been stressed and depressed so I got out my watercolors and started doodling and painting. And they may not be the best or even moderately good, but it feels so good to be standing at my easel again.
Normally I don’t share my paintings because they mean too much to me, and I’m worried about what someone may think about them. Which is silly but I think everyone is hesitant to share their artwork. But I’ve decided to be brave and share these recent works that are based on my photos from my family’s farm.
1st one, an old shed. I’m still working on this one but it needed to sit and rest before I added anything else.
Thanks for letting me share a little bit of myself.
