All Mixed Up
Spring Pool Party, Reimagined
Self Portrait (2) in quarantine
Doing art in quarantine is a calming escape from a lot of current events happening, but at the same time it can be a little daunting. In my mind, I think: since I have so much time, I should be producing a billion more art pieces, but I realize this is just another form of productivity shaming myself. It’s been good to draw, but also good to rest. I hope all of you are doing the same.
My creative process is just noticing the everyday things around me and wondering if that could capture a deeper meaning as a subject. One of my paintings, Summer Pool Party Reimagined, was inspired by my brother eating an Eggo waffle in the morning. Some of my other pieces are inspired by songs I heard on the radio, or the state of life in general. I love using bright watercolors because they are so vibrant and remind me to be happier.
