Good morning, my loves. Coming at you today from the comfort of my cozy studio. ♡ It’s so much fun to get out and take my art to new and unfamiliar places, but it also feels so good to get back home and let things fall back into their amazing routine. My studio is glowing today and I feel so grateful and so blessed as I’m cleaning and unpacking.

If you read the last post, you will see that I participated in a group show for artists in my local community. It was a last-minute decision, but I’m so glad that I stepped out of the norms of my everyday studio routines. The event was outdoors and I have never participated in something like this before so needless to say, I didn’t have a tent, weights, and a lot of other supplies that would have made it look better. I’ve only shown in galleries where you don’t take things into consideration such as rain and wind. Not only that, but you never have to supply anything other than your pieces. Luckily, I didn’t get rained out, but my paintings kept getting knocked down due to the wind. Regardless of that small annoyance, the show went really well!

I was surprised to see so many people and it was so amazing to have my work admired by all those who stopped by. It was my first time painting live and the audiences really enjoyed the demo. A young girl even said she wanted to be an artist like me when she grows up. That alone melted me to the core. ♡ ♡ ♡

Getting back into a calm, slow pace this week as I prepare for upcoming shows and exhibitions. More to come. Have a blessed week, friends and no matter what, keep creating.

XOXO,

Q
