Thank you for all the lovely birthday messages yesterday! I spent it doing normal things, but joyous throughout for all I've accomplished in the past two months. I now have a stable address & am thankful every day for all those friends who have helped me get here. There's still work to be done, though!
If I could explain what I do, as an artist, I'd say I'm a lifelong student of colors. All my work for the past year and a half has been focused on playing with color...seeing which work together and which don't. And through this period of exploration, I found I can naturally gravitate towards harmonious combinations.
It really does take hard work & passion to develop your skills!
It's hugely rewarding to help others find their colors. For years, I've had this nudge to create something along those lines...an article, blog posts, or even a class. I want to help others find their colors so they can get back to being artists. Discovering your colors is more than just developing a palette -- your whole life changes. Your wardrobe shifts, your jewelry changes, & you can decorate your home really easily!
I recently finished this piece -- I've been paying attention to contrast and balance, making sure to have black and white (or a dark and light color), which helps a lot. I even grabbed glitter and blew it across the surface.
