Hello everyone, I finished another Life Book inspired painting which I’ve named ‘From the Ashes’.
I painted it to explore the situations we can sometimes find ourselves in, when going through a hard time in life, we can feel destroyed, burnt to the ground in a pile of ash on the floor.
I wanted this painting to show how we all have the ability to rise from the ashes and renew ourselves, it takes courage, self-love and determination, but it is possible.
I talk about this more in the video linked below.
I managed to finish another sweet girl and cat painting, I am much happier with this one as I feel I gave it my full attention whilst taking it very slowly, enjoying the process of painting and figuring out how I wanted her to look etc.
She came out a bit lighter in skin tone than I expected, I think ‘High Yella’ is the term used in the USA :D
My next painting will feature a girl wth much darker skin and possibly plaits.
Generally life has been good, I am really getting into my fitness and healthy lifestyle changes, I have been on a mission to see my abs!! but I have no idea if they actually exist :D I have cut quite a lot of things from my diet such as dairy, wheat (mostly), processed foods, alcohol (mostly) etc and have been doing a number of different youtube exercise routines… they are amazing!!! More on this in my next post!!
