Room portrait

Room portrait

A bit slow to the challenge, but I’ve been inspired to start illustrating rooms as suggested by Room portrait club
This is week 6 and I’ve finally managed to complete this room designed by Lonika Chande ๐ŸŒˆโญ
It’s so wonderful to belong to a virtual community of artists especially during lockdown when having a connection to the outside world is limited except through social media ๐ŸŒ
Have a creative week everyone. Stay sane and stay safe.

Tiger moth

Asota heliconia

Today’s been such a hot day, I felt like Ive been baking in an oven all day. Needless to say I didn’t feel like working or sketching. I put the ac on in my room and went back to bed until evening when the weather cooled down. As I was sitting on my balcony a moth flew into my apt and she stayed there until I decided to get off my ass and draw her. Moths come into our lives to tell us that we will find strength to transform within ourselves. Change will happen when u want it. ๐Ÿฆ‹

Peach face lovebirds

Peach face lovebirds

Happy Monday!
Today has been productive. I finally completed this Pet portrait commission of 6 lovebirds. I needed this to motivate myself to start painting.
It’s been such a struggle to stay in the right mindset to create. The most important lesson for me is to not slide too far down into the abyss. Everyday I catch myself from falling by adding and allowing activities that bring me joy.
Stay safe and stay sane my friends ๐Ÿ’š

Vintage cigar box

Vintage Agio cigar box

If you’ve followed me long enough, you would have realised that I’m a bit of a hoarder. If I get too carried away, my tiny apt will start to consume me.
One thing (of many) I love are vintage boxes. I’m a sentimental artist. I hold on to things because they store valuable memories. The smell of this box brings back memories of my dad.

Vintage Sunbeam Alpine

Vintage Sunbeam Alpine

Well Hello February. The first month is behind us and it’s been well boring as much as I love my own company and home. A road trip would be a breath of fresh air about now. O wait what, we’re still in lockdown? Uff

Home is where the heart is

Home is where the heart is

It’s a silly Sunday and today Im drawing my way out of boredom and catching myself before I spiral into depression. I don’t know about you but lockdown is like a roller coaster of emotions. Some days are good, some days are neutral and some days are outrightly depressing.
Objectively nothing has changed, everyday is the same, it’s how my mind decides to play out the day. Having the right tools like my drawing, meditation and workouts is the fastest way to catch my mind before it sabotages my day.
So today has been saved.

Ayam brand Sardines

Ayam brand canned sardines

Tuna is known as chicken of the sea so I guess this nostalgic makes brand makes sense.
However, after googling the origin of the brand, the rooster logo becomes clear. Founded in 1892 by Alfred Clouet, the rooster is actually a symbol of France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท
