brave painting

i have been doing so much repeat pattern-creating in illustrator lately and i love it.  however, i feel a little bit cramped creatively.  i signed up for flora bowley's bloom true painting course to help break out of my self-imposed confinements.we were traveling so i missed the first week, but i got out of the car after about 500 miles of being on the road and i broke out my paints. i got through the first week of class content. and it's so awesome.

brave painting some of my goals or intentions for this course are to let go. just let the paint flow and not worry about the end result. it was so fun to make marks tonight without any thought or concern about what comes next.  i put on florence + the machine :: ceremonials, which is like my life soundtrack lately, and got into such a groove. this is exactly what i needed.
