This year, I vowed to find balance in my life. I have been making sure that I set aside time to do what I love. I work on several projects at the same time, all the time, and I often feel like a browser with 97 tabs open. I’m not complaining though, I LOVE what I do, and I’m blessed to have a job that brings me so much joy. But it does get stressful, and workaholic that I am, it taxes me physically and mentally too.
Lately I’ve turned to watercolours and calligraphy to de-stress. There is a joy that comes from creating art that cannot be matched by any other activity.
Flowers are instant pick-me-ups. I painted this right after I finished another project. 🙂
this is my bliss. 🙂
I’ve also started to accept commissions on my illustrations. The image above is for a blog header.
I loved the concept and the colour palette! Can’t wait to see this one go live.
I think this one will look really nice with a calligraphed quote in the center, don’t you think? 🙂
This cute set is for a blog header again. It’s a more whimsical style.
What do you do to de-stress?
I taught a private watercolour workshop last weekend, and it was so much fun! I’m planning something more amazing with a friend who teaches calligraphy. It’s going to be awesome. Watch out for the announcement soon. 🙂
