Stepping out of my comfort zone

I am a person that tries to do everything perfect, a type A personality, even in my art. Sometimes I get burned out or frustrated when something I am painting doesn't come out perfectly. This summer I decided to let go, try to not be perfect, paint things that are out of my comfort zone and with materials that I don't normally use. Just let go and have fun. :) It was tough at the beginning but I am learning to just go with it, do things the wrong way (not the way-techniques I was taught by my art teachers)

Here are some examples of my experiment

Hand Made Gifts!

Hi everyone, I hope your week is going good :)
As some of you know, I am making inventory to create an Etsy shop! and sell at farmers markets as soon as the weather here in Florida is tolerable to sit outside for hours...

I wanted to share some stuff I have made for gifts ;) There is something special about giving hand made things as presents, they are unique and you wont find everywhere...

* For my friend Coco since I ate the chocolates I had gotten her for her birthday lol  I decided to make her a note pad
  

* For my best friend Alex I made a hand painted mug
  

* For someone special... can't say the name because we still haven't mailed the gift I made a to go coffee mug

  

* For my niece/God Daughter I made a little journal... since she went to camp maybe she can write down her experience and glue some things to remember the time there
 I decided to give her one of the pink ones (im going to sell the rest)

* For father's day we made a little bird house Church

Bowl of Fruits

Today is one of those rainy summer days and there is nothing that makes me happier than a nice sweet fruit. Since yesterday we got some I decided to sketch them in my planner before we ate them all :) 





I decided to paint them in my planner for the month of March, since it is my favorite month :) not only because of my B-day but its Spring!
