You probably haven’t been told about my problems and the toll it takes of always having it in the back of my mind and have it always following you around even if you’re trying your darnest to not think of it…
Well at least writing is an outlet for me and it helps me forget, even just for a moment that my world isn’t so bad. I’ve always wanted to learn how to do watercolour paintings; and so recently I brought it up with my boyfriend and he said, “So what’s stopping you?” And of course all my excuses came rolling off my tongue and he quickly stopped me and said, “Those are all just excuses. Just go do it. Get what you need and paint me something today.” I was slightly taken aback but I should have expected his response. He was always creatively inclined; that was a big part of why I was attracted to him at first.
Anyway, I decided to just go with it. My one fear with starting was that big self doubting question, “What if I’m not good at it?” And I had voiced that to my boyfriend and he said, “I don’t care if it’s ugly, keep doing a painting one day at a time. You’ll get better.” Such encouraging words from that one lol. So here are some of my first tries at watercolour painting. They’re not the best, but I know keeping it up will give me a chance to learn intuitively and give my own unique mark through my paintings.
I hope you like them, I enjoyed making them immensely. Of course I had to watch tutorials too for these, otherwise I think I would have just made a mess of things… Ciao for now! 🙂
