  1. Study your favorite artist or photos of inspiration for 10 minutes!
  2. Create a sketch or painting, spending no more than 1-2hrs rendering.
  3. Admire your improvement!

Happy Creating!

I definitely had to try out the 3 Marker Challenge. This was my first ever 3 Marker Challenge and my first time sketching with marker. I used watercolor markers. Watch this video to see what colors I picked!

Hi Friends!

Check out this Batman themed patient room I painted. This took about 15hrs to complete. I used acrylic paint. The blue wall was already painted so I decided to flow with it.

Let me know what you all think! Happy Painting!

This Minions room was so fun to complete! Even though so much was going on around me, painting this minions room made me so happy! This is a perfect example of why I paint. When I paint, I helps me get through whatever may be going on in my reality. I completely zoned out on this one!

A moment of honesty: I'm always really shocked at my results. Every time I pick up a pencil or paint brush, I admire the progress I've made. :)
