enjoy.

word of advice: only make moves when your heart is fully in it.

6 Mar

it’s been a dry 2 years.

colorless. canvasless. paintless.

i drifted away from painting for one reason or another..

but,

the more important thing here is that i fell back in, deep.

i don’t know how i went so long without painting. sitting in front of my canvas with my paint lined brushes, red water cups blanketed in splatters of paint, felt so right. i missed painting. i missed the acrylic under my nails and smeared against my arms and legs. i missed the way the paint feels against the canvas. i missed the sense of accomplishment after finishing a piece. i missed looking at something that was created from nothing. i guess it’s true.. only make moves when your heart is fully in it.

reintroducing, me.
