More Artsy Exploration

First of all,  I have to say thank you to those who commented on my last post.  Your comments are all so encouraging and uplifting!  I'm going to keep exploring with watercolors and just have fun with it.  I think I've realized that I don't have to just have one "style" for the rest of my life... I can take my time and see what happens.

So here is my latest experiment.....

I experimenting with the background in this one.  I used some rock salt on wet paint to get some texture.  Then I got kinda crazy and used a rubber stamp dipped in watercolor paint on parts of it.  This was really fun!  Once I let go of the fear of ruining my painting I was able to just let myself explore and I really like how it turned out.

If you haven't noticed the new quote in my sidebar, I'll write it here..

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes, Art is knowing which ones to keep." -Scott Adams

This is my new motto... stop worrying about making mistakes, just have fun! Hopefully those mistakes will one day turn out to be something beautiful :)

    So true, the happy mistakes are the best

  2. LOVE this one! It's so summery! I've said this before, but I'm so happy that you get so much joy out of your art. Art has probably literally kept you sane these last few years. Thanks for sharing!
