Every time I pick up the brush again, the look of my work changes. Haha!

Reposting this from a few years ago for this glorious Easter day. Jesus is risen!

On another note, I miss making more intensive and time-consuming paintings like this.



@Regrann from @lorraelena - I got really inspired by @ellieholcomb's Marvelous Light (listen to it because it's an amazing song), so I made this. All the while painting, I felt anything but confident that it'll turn out okay, but I just offered it up to God as my love letter to Him and I think that has made all the difference. #watercolor #painting #artph #art #illustration #lettering #light #starsfordreams #worship #lorraelena - #regrann

Is it possible to fall in love with paint? Or a new palette?

I've been trying to decide whether to get Daniel Smith tubes since last year. The price of creating a palette out of DS paints would really put a dent in someone's savings. Especially since I rarely get to paint these days. But I really really loved the dot cards I sampled, and I'm trying to find ways to get back to painting regularly.

So, after more than a year of agonizing over it, I finally got my colors. I'm still waiting for 2 more to complete this palette though. That just means I'll be extra excited again in a month haha! Thank you @des_artroom for a more than excellent shopping experience. And thanks to @janeblundellart's blog where I got my start on which colors to get.
My faves so far: Green Apatite Genuine, Quinacridone Gold, Quinacridone Rose, Cerulean Blue Chromium, and Moonglow.

I also included PWC and Holbein tubes that I've had for a few years (last 6). #watercolor #danielsmith #palette

Note: Sorry about the photo/color quality btw. Lighting is so bad at home, but I'm too excited to wait for morning and better lighting haha!

A quick doodle for International Women's Day! 🙋🏻

Original quote reads: "I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman."

I've been meaning to do a "What's in My Diaper Bag" illustration, so that's what I painted last night. Miraculously, Oliver slept long enough for me to finish it in one go.

My hand hurt so much after! 😂 But I'm really glad I got to hold my brushes and use my watercolors again.

I also tried out my @mosseryco sketchbook for the first time, and it was lovely to work on. Hoping to fill this up this year, no matter how slowly.

This boy has been sick for three weeks now, hence my forced art leave. Coughing fits and vomitpalooza are the worst! 😩

But now that he's sort of on the mend (I hope), I'm trying to get back to making things. Except I'm at a loss and feeling uninspired.

Any tips or prompts? Anything you want to see drawn? Help me get my groove back?

Updated an old drabby flower crown with crepe paper flowers and watercolor leaves.

It was a crazy end of 2016 and an even crazier start to 2017, but it's also a great opportunity for brighter things ahead.

May 2017 be a year of adventure, growth, creativity, and happiness for all of us!

This year is an extra special Christmas because it's my baby's first, and I'm excited for him to grow up learning about God's greatest gift - our salvation through Jesus Christ.

My heart is indeed filled with joy and gratitude.

Have a blessed Christmas everyone! ❤️

This feels both underdone and overdone, but I didn't want to dwell on it anymore. So here it is.

They've started another project on @30daysofbiblelettering, but it's down to 14 days since they started on December 18.



“The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior! He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me, who saves me from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from a violent man you rescued me. Therefore I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭18:46-49‬ ‭NIV‬‬
