Autumn walk in the woods

Sometimes,I get visions in my head. The first thing ,I do is paint. Like today for example, I had this vision of the woods.

I already had my oil paints out. I figured just to use them. It has a water color feeling to it. I have different colors to choose from. Sometimes, I use the basic colors that I have. I like to try to use different ideas to give myself a little challenge. This painting took me about a couple of minutes to do. Sometimes,it takes me day ,or a week. It depends on my mood.

Haven’t posted in long while

Sorry,that I haven’t posted in long time.Life in general has taken over. A lot has happened since I last posted.I have been working a lot.My mom is in a relationship with man that loves her. My oldest daughter moved out . I have finally gotten my Chloe back. My brother and his girlfriend moved in.We are all supposed to be taking over the mortgage. That has been a bumpy road .

I have been making memory bears for my oldest daughter. Her Bio Dad committed suicide in November.I have been making bears for his side of the family. I was in car accident also in November. I wasn’t hurt,but my van was. I can still drive it,but can’t afford to get it fixed.

I have been painting a lot. I have sold a few.I have put my paintings on Esty. No bites or nibbles on that.Even on market place no buyers. I have been struggling for while.

Depression painting

For many years, I suffered from depression. I was finally able to show you by artistic expression. This how I felt over the years.

The not knowing  feeling of  which way to go.The shaky  ground you walk on. The tornado full of emotions. To the black hole of sadness. The emptiness, broken hearted,or even feeling  loved. Let’s not forget to include the anxiety!!

Paintings #3 & #4

I had two paintings that I started.At first,I wasn’t into them and I stopped.I was getting frustrated.

So, today on my day off.I went to my job and gotten some more brushes. Plus, white paint ,because I use the paint cover the canvas.Especially, when I am not into the painting.

This particular painting ,I really enjoyed working on. It is more of an Autumn type theme.

Finished Painting

I am finally finished my painting…I am pretty happy with the results..

I am glad that I waited for daylight to finish it.I also noticed that my stress level is going down.

This from last night before I lost daylight.I thought the painting needed something

As you can see it looked so plain without any scenery.

Inspiration

Today started as a semi normal day at work…it was very busy

After work,I did some shopping and got more canvas and paints.I decided to watch some Bob Ross..

Then it hit me…my inspiration…I decided on a different type of painting.I am not a landscape type of person,but I am trying…

It isn’t done yet…I have to get more colors and different brushes.Not bad for a first try.

Painting

It has been a very long time, since I posted anything.I have been working the whole time during this covid situation.

I have been dealing with depression.That is me still grieving since my Dad passed a year ago. I am stressing because trying to rent a house.Plus worrying about my Mom with her personal issues.

I decided to paint a picture for my oldest daughter for her birthday.

I noticed it helps me relax a little bit.So,today I decided to make this for my youngest daughter.
