I find it challenging to do anything on the daily. Beneficial or not. I usually just do what I want. Then, occasionally, if I'm feeling brave I'll do things when I feel shit. And the results are surprising, like this drawing. Sometimes it's better when life isn't so predictably ~okay~
I was honored to paint this 36x48 commission piece for a client of my friend/interior designer @kymwellsinteriors. Commission pieces are amazing as an artist because you are given a framework of creative guidelines and then it is such a fun challenge to find your expression that speaks to these guidelines and also delights your client. I really didn’t want to give this one up. Acrylic inks on wood with a lacquer finish...yummy!

Happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe we are already half way through November and that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK. Enjoy your weekend and stay tuned for more paintings! 😘
This whole week I've been trapped in my mind. Funny to see how it reflects on today's mural. I can't stay in one spot for too long, easily distracted and eeeeeh (..) let's just paint wherever 🤸🏼♂️🙄 #icoulduseadrink
