1st Paintings! 8.2.19-9.2.19

I started painting this past summer.

The Why and How:

I was living through a challenging time health-wise. I’d been dealing with physical pain like I’d never experienced before, along with social isolation and limited finances/resources. My mental and emotional health subsequently was on a downward path.

Fortunately for me, my friend and mentor Luckie, surprised me with a backpack of art supplies. In the bag I found drawing paper, pens, pencils, erasers, a journal, and acrylic paint with synthetic brushes.

My 1st Paint Set!

I haven’t looked up “how to paint” yet. Just learning as I go. These reflect what’s inside of me now made manifest into the physical world. These are born from generosity, desire, and need for creative expression.

I love learning. I love new beginnings.
