Mamarazzi Watercolor Painting

Y’all, I did something that even shocks me!  I finished a painting from so long ago that I am not even sure when I started it.

mamarazzi.painting_edited-1My finished watercolor painting – Mamarazzi.  It took me far longer than 6 weeks to even touch my art table after I had my first child.  I am pretty proud of just making time for something I enjoy doing – just carving out me time is a milestone.

me.and.cameraI do know that I was working on it in February of 2013, which is when this photo was taken to help me with the hand pose.  I can see stacks of boxes in the background, so I know we were preparing for our cross-country move at that time.

That is why this quote appealed to me so much – though I would have to add to it, ‘projects I was meaning to finish.’  This is my last week before going back to work and I have much to do – consisting mostly of soaking up time with my little ones.
