Who knew that In 2020, one could only dream of summer getaways and city breaks. I haven’t travelled or left the city since lockdown in March. I had a few work trips planned but the second lockdown kicked in.
It’s been such a challenging year mentally and emotionally but I am grateful for commissions like this. In fact, this painting has travelled more than me this year.

Thank you everyone for supporting my art. Liking and sharing my works and having an audience matter too.
I am thankful. ❤️❤️
Stay well my friends.

Word of the day: Coronacoaster


Who feels the same?

Word of the day: Coronacoaster.
Noun: the ups and downs of a pandemic.
One moment you’re loving your bubble, creating, meditating and working out, the next moment you’re drinking gin for breakfast and missing people you don’t even like.

Portrait of the week : Jon snow

Happy fullmoon.

Lockdown cabin fever has been getting to me. I have my ups and downs but it’s definitely important to be aware of what’s happening sooner than later. I’ve just finished my 2 week wobbly.

Thank you for the portrait of the week painting series to set me straight every Sunday. Today’s portrait of the week is of journalist Jon Snow. I definitely feel much saner after this painting session.
It’s a quick portrait before Sunday dinner. I’m not going to touch it anymore because I find I tend to overwork them.

Happy Wednesday. Have you done a fast before? I have just completed my first ever 48 hour fast just to see what it’s all about. I don’t feel any different. Yesterday I was terribly hungry but today felt normal.

Today’s Sketch no 1440 is of a blue and white Chinese teacup with lid.

Have a creative week! 💕

How’s everyone doing? I was thinking of fasting and just drinking tea today but I don’t think I’m going to make it for longer than 24 hours… I’m so hungry right now.
