I'm your friend on the other side of the world and I would love to hear your story too. How did watercolor shape you?
Back in 2016 I was down with stress. My entire body said a great big no. That was when I discovered that hidden box of supplies that was tucked under my sofa. This box helped me so much and I slowly started to paint my way back to life.
After this we made a decision - a decision to live slower. So we moved from the big city with drunk singing people outside our windows to the country with an Owl living in the garden.
I was pregnant with my babygirl Agnes and 4 months before birth the doctors told me to sit still. Like not even gardening(!)
I panicked and started searching for answers, looking for jobs, anything really. And at the end of the day I got tired. I sat down, and found my brushes, paint and paper.
Once again Watercolor helped me stay sane.
After birth watercolor helped me through sleepless nights and unemployment. Watercolor had somehow chosen me, and I am forever grateful!
How watercolor chose me
but why flowers?
(you might ask)
I come from a home with flowers all around. My parents always spend the seasons in the garden, tending all the beautiful blooms. Somehow I always found my way back to flowers and wanted to be a florist for sevearl years.
But somehow through artI finally found a way to show my true appriciation for flowers. Showing the different blooms and how they look throughout the seasons. They are so beautiful in their early stages as well in the end of fall.
