Motherhood Bliss



I have another painting that I finished I think in 2010 called "Bliss", it was done in watercolor H'20's which are metallic watercolors. When I went to print said painting I discovered that it did not scan very well because of the reflection off of the metallic paints. So, today I was able to create a new piece very similar to the first one but done with Copic Markers. When I began this piece I was not liking the way it started out ~ it was very dull looking and I was about to scrap the whole page when my youngest son told me I should continue on so that I could work on my 'perfectionistic' habits! He is trying to help me be happy with my art that isn't 'perfect' to my standards (out of the mouth of babes:) )
In the end it turned out much better than I ever thought and I'm thinking it is one of my favorites now! Thank you Ben for being my encourager and helping me with my bad habits!

Be blessed everyone and enjoy the day!

This piece is lovely. I think Ben is right. Perfectionism is over-rated. When it comes to art, I think imperfection is much more interesting. Most digitally created art (which looks perfect to me) seems cold and unappealing. Your painting is original, interesting, and tells a little story.
