It has begun...I am fulfilling my mom's life-long dream (for me) of painted pet portraits. And it's actually fun! I've almost completed one of tiny dog Jellybean, and I'm about to start on two other elderly pups. I carved out a little studio space in the guest room, so if you're planning to crash here, it might get a little paint-fumey. But that's fun, right?
I'm also attempting to keep up with my artist journal, which has been super therapeutic. I feel like everyone should have one, even if you don't consider yourself creatively inclined, I think it's a good practice. I like journaling when I have a trashy show on in the background...which maybe explains my crazy use of color and weird patterns. Thanks, Jersey Shore!
This week I got the privilege to makeover the lovely Sara for a date night, and I'm super proud of this look! I'm not sure what I would call it, but it's pretty cool that the light brown shadow I put on her eyes gave off this hazy purple color since her eyes are SO BLUE. I also used my new cream contour pallet I got on Amazon for a grand total of 7 dollars, and that's quickly becoming my new favorite magic trick.
