Purple She: A watercolor

Before I went to school and studied art (Advertising & Graphic Design) I was an artist who created solely from imagination. But having the learn the “rules” of “proper” art, I became some what rigid.

I somewhat lost my freedom to create on a whim. That freshness returned with a vengance in November 2013 when I went to Europe for 10 days. That freshness is what gave life to this blog and everything you find on it.

Purple She is my recent watercolor piece.

    1. πŸ˜€ thank you very much! I am really excited about my journey with watercolors. Of course part of that is due to the instant gratification that they bring. πŸ˜‰ As far as her meaning, I was really just thinking about painting massive hair, BUT art is objective so how ever it speaks to you is what it means πŸ™‚

      1. πŸ™‚ Maybe one day in the near future I will put it on my etsy store front for sale. Selling prints of my art has been something at the back of my mind for a long time now.

      2. Woo hoo. Good for YOU. Why not. Be sure to be kind to yourself. Don’t…just…just.
        I have a sister who did awesome bridal gowns. Almost gave away her work. People took advantage of her soft heart. Take care and have a fabulous weekend.

      3. Thank you very much for that advice. I want people to be able to have access to art but I have to treat myself in a worthy way while doing so. This has been a struggle for me. My goodness its almost as if you are reading my mail πŸ˜‰
