A little fall is happening here on my desk and I couldn’t be more delighted! I’ll have a new print releasing this Friday!!
I love this season. There’s a fall quote that I once read that goes something like “Autumn shows us the beauty in letting go.”
I’m finding that in different avenues of my life and this weekend, I found it in my art.
I’ve always been the one to draw everything out before diving in. (It’s the perfectionist in me.) I would put much of my skills in trying to tame watercolor but I find myself in admiring with loose, and sometime uncontrollably, characteristics of it.
The last few month, I learned to let go a little. I let go of the need to sketch out everything. That was a scary step.
This past week, during a conversation with my dear friend, @mayweflydesign, I realize how often I don’t play enough with my art. After a few tips from her, I decided to apply it and I found myself discovering a new love for this medium. What even better, I found new way to allow myself to let go and enjoy the process more.
I hope you have a good Monday, friends!
