Hi, lovelies! I love sharing my talent with others and I’ve done quite a few projects for clients, for school, and for family members over the years. The thing is, I’ve never taken the time to paint something for myself and so I decided it was about time to do so. I wanted the painting to be something that was unique and special to me. Flowers have always been one of my favorite things in this world and I actually did a whole flowers and bones series recently. My favorite part about that series was painting all the flowers. Peonies are my favorite flower and for my personal project, I decided to do a peony painting for my bedroom. Peonies are just so feminine, romantic, and pretty. It took months to finish the peony painting because I could only work on it in-between projects.
Now that it’s finished, I love it! In the mornings I wake up and it makes me so happy when I see it. The rich pinks, reds, and magentas in this peony painting are amazing. It also happens to match my bedspread which is another plus! The larger size gives it a “wow” factor. I enjoyed painting the flowers up close because it gives a different kind of perspective to the flowers. This painting got me started on a whole series of flower paintings that I should be posting about in the near future, so stay tuned!
Balance is everything in life. I think it’s important to sometimes step back and do things for yourself. It’s easy to focus on all the things that need to get done and other people; but I found if I take moments here and there to treat myself, I’m usually a lot less stressed and everything else seems to fall into place.
