Happy spring? I wish! It’s snowing here today and spring is on Tuesday. Grrrrrr. But in honour of the upcoming spring, I painted a pretty flower girl. I am anticipating the warm weather, spring rains and my garden. I can’t wait to get back to it. The girl above is painted in watercolours with coloured pencils over top. I used plenty of collage flower elements as well except the flowers I used I actually painted too. They’re all from my various clipart sets. I used acrylics and markers for the big flowers over top. Lots of media in this one! It’s for sale too. Send me a note if you’re interested. It’s 9″ x 12″ on watercolour paper.
I won’t be bikini ready (OMG, that will never EVER happen again) but I’m doing another fast this week and am hungry in my mind, lol. I know I’m not actually hungry. I switched to a ketogenic diet just over a year ago for health reasons and had been intermittent fasting as well but I hit a plateau over Christmas and stayed at the same weight for about three months. I thought I’d shake things up this month and add in fasting days again and it has totally dislodged that plateau. WOO! I don’t ever get hungry eating keto so it’s super easy to fast but overcoming the mind tricks is another thing. My mind wants a big spinach salad loaded with cheese but my tummy is like, “meh, I can wait.” I love keto. Seriously. Best thing I ever did for my health.
I have a lot of art on the go this weekend so hope to fill the blog with new stuff over the next few weeks. Hope you all have a happy weekend!
