Studio Peek!

On Friday I was overwhelmed with inspiration for a new painting! I get ideas pretty often, but it's rare that I feel so passionate about an idea that I act on it in the moment (well, as soon as I get off work!) But, that's what happened with this painting! I left work with a sketch and a list of the colors I envisioned and headed straight to the store. Once I arrived home with the supplies, I was off and running! 


This painting is very close to my heart because it is about something that happened to me recently and the comforting words that ring out of one of my favorite hymns.


Once I have everything finished, I'll show you the whole painting and share my story too. 


I'm close to finishing, but for now I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks!
How do you tackle a project? Do you do it all at once? Does it take time, lists, and a journey? 
I usually keep an idea cooking for awhile before I put paint to canvas, but I was so excited that this painting has come about this way! I hope I can do more this way!

I'd love to know what you think!

happy wednesday!

It depends on what project. Sometimes it's nice to spend time on a project and to do it on a day to day basis and see it progress!
