6" x 6" acrylic on masonite
Today I felt like doing an acrylic painting. So I did. Because it's my birthday and you're supposed to get what you want on your birthday right?? ;)
My goal is to feel as comfortable at painting portraits with acrylics as I do with watercolors. I don't want them to look the same, and really they can't just because of how different acrylics and watercolors are. But I want to feel confident in my ability to handle this medium so I can be expressive. Every painting gets me closer to that goal.
Today I found it incredibly satisfying to feel, for just a moment, that hum of the creative groove when everything just flows and comes together exactly as you wanted it to. You know what I mean? Yeah, it's awesome.
And my sweet family made me cupcakes for my 31st birthday today. :) Big ones, pink ones, little ones, blue ones, chocolate ones, strawberry ones, sprinkled ones, and GIGANTIC ones.
What else can a girl ask for? Nothing that's what. I've got it all. Time to paint, a loving family, cupcakes, and just. . . life. It's been a good day. No, scratch that, a great day. I hope yours was too my dear friends.
