“It’s the process that teaches us the most about who we are.” - Brene Brown, Rising Strong
My word for 2019 is INTENTIONAL. 2018 was a whirlwind. It went by quickly, sometimes without me even noticing it was happening. I want to change that, if nothing more than to sit quietly and take it in fully. My watercolor studies are just one part of this change. The small paintings are my attempt to plan, to take in the landscape, and to establish a connection with the artwork. Most importantly they are an attempt to slow down and embrace the reasons behind painting it in the first place. A small collection of studies will be offered after the completion of each oil painting. My hope is that you connect to my process through these small paintings and that you find it stands as a reminder for slow living in your home.
