Today I practiced my own version of perfect on this sweet piece.
I love reverse stenciling, it creates such a beautiful pattern and texture and is perfect for a wash or a glaze.
And then I played like a kid with my Soho soft pastels! It is so much fun and if you’re not sure if you should add additional color to your piece soft pastels are perfect if you’re unsure because if you don’t like it you can just wipe it off.
This quote that inspired this piece made me smile the second I saw it! You know that feeling when you read something and you know it was meant for you. That’s how it was, so I knew I had to share it and paint it.
I’m constantly learning to be comfortable in my own skin, to not compare myself to anyone else, to grow and learn new things but also accept me for me,…….. weird quirks, fear, and awkwardness in all.
We all have our own beauty, or own talents and our own version of perfect. YOU are perfect just as you are.
I share more about it in the video…. enjoy!
