Leaves and Clouds… Where did they come from??

I’ll be honest, I’m not really in the mood to paint today!
I feel sleepy, I have a commissioned painting to work on, new paintings to varnish…
I notice my mind is looking for excuses…
I’m thinking “Maybe I’ll just won’t send out my newsletter this week?”… But NO.
I made a commitment to you my Creative Friend and I know you are eagerly waiting to receive the sunny content I said I would give you every week 😉

Therefore I shall push myself a little and create a new tutorial regardless of how I’m feeling (it’s not like going to the gym after all!). And from experience, I know that pushing myself a little usually results in things flowing when I paint so I really have no excuses!

I had nothing specific in mind when I started but somehow, leaves and clouds are what’s left in my art journal spread today. Any clues of what happened here? hahaha

Just do it anyway.

If I can push myself a little, I know you can too! If you’re not feeling the arty love while reading this then please don’t give up! Go sit at your art table anyway and just put paint to paper. Any paint, any paper.
And if leaves and clouds also appear for you then make sure to post a photo in the Facebook support group so I will know I’m not alone in this crazy world 😉

Love to you my Creative Friend!

xx Mimi
