My colorful Watercolor Palette on my art table. The only place where I can let myself get messy because the mess itself is just too beautiful to clean up after. My sister, Nancy gifted me this perfect Winsor and Newton Watercolor palette a couple of years ago and finally in 2020, it is being used daily.
A few of the Animal cROSSING vILLAGERS I have been free hand illustrating over the last couple of months. Every time I start a new villager I get nervous I'm going to make a mistake and ruin the illustration. Little by little I am learning that making mistakes, erasing and starting over is part of this process of learning a new skill.

mORE anIMAL cROSSING vILLAGERS! shown here are only 5 out of the 47 Villagers I have already illustrated and painted. Only 350 more to go! My goal for the rest of 2020 will be to complete as many more Animal Crossing Villagers as I can until I complete all 397 of them. Animal Crossing has been a huge part of my quarantine life and I want to make sure I document this unforgettable time in my life by having a tangible version of these cuties. Look out for finished Villagers as stickers and prints in my shop *Coming Soon*
cUTE laZY type vILLAGERS. If you're reading this and you're an Animal Crossing fan, let me know which Villagers are some of your favorites. I know this is a difficult answer to give as there are just too many cute ones! My current top 5 are, Carmen, Doc, Kiki, Cole, and Midge.
This is wHAT MY art table SITUATION LOOKS LIKE NOWADAYs. I definitely have to say I do not mind it one bit. Coming in to a room where all of my precious art supplies and works in progress are in makes me so happy and ready to start the day on a positive note. diving into this new skill that I have been wanting to start for so long is still so surreal for me. Pre-COVID, my life was 95% work and 5% everything else leaving me little to no time to make time for the things that made me happy. I feel lucky that after 6 months of being unsure of what was next for me I have finally found some peace by pursuing my art adventure. I know times are so challenging and uncertain for many of us, but one thing I am slowly learning to accept is that I can't waste more precious time feeling sorry and anxious over a situation I have no control over. What I do have control of is how I use this time. I am excited to continue to focus on my ART and take on new challenges day by day. Anyway! more art posts to come soon. After over a year, It feels good to press that "PUBLISH" button again. I hope you're healthy and happy.
