A little over a year ago, some friends encouraged me to get a new hobby-a pastime performed for nothing more than PURE JOY. I have a lot of hobbies that stress me out, like writing or running; but somehow, I manage to drain any joy out of them by trying to do them perfectly. Oh, Michelle!
So, when my friends encouraged me to try a new hobby, I chose painting, knowing I could set the bar extremely LOW. After all, I am the LEAST artistic person I’ve ever met. Anyone who has ever played Pictionary with me knows that my blob-like images of dogs resemble my blob-like drawings of airplanes or blobby houses or blobby cars. 😂
With that in mind, I started painting with only joy in mind. What I found was a hobby so fun that I do it constantly. I’m obsessed. Plus, I’ve gained a community of supportive artist friends who are the loveliest people in the world. I’m so honored that my other friends have asked to see my artwork, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites.
Hope you like them, Sara. 😉
