  4. This is an abstract interpretation of my first palette... (see picture no. 3)
I’ve always been very partial to these colors, simply due to my nostalgic personality. 
I don’t expect anyone to like this quite as much as I do... lol

  5. I think I understand why Van Gogh ended up in a mental ward... the detail in his flowers can kinda make you go crazy...
This. Was. So. Much. Fun. I’ve always wanted to use a famous painting as a practice-project, so why not use one of my all-time favorite pieces!

  21. Two months ago, I made the decision to quit my day job and become a full time artist. No sugar coating here...some days have been ROUGH, but every minute has been relentlessly rewarding. 
Before choosing this path, I kept telling people (& myself) that I was far from being able to turn my passion into my career. Little did I know all it took was perseverance, some business knowledge, & a whole lot of passion. 
I still have QUITE a bit to learn, but long-story-slightly-short: don’t let fear of the unknown take away your chances of creating something great. Make your mark on the world around you & don’t apologize for it.

I wish a picture did half as much justice as seeing this in person... the amount of texture in the petals makes this almost more of a sculpture..❤️
