L’Artiste who painted herself

The discipline of creation, be it to paint, compose, write, is an effort towards wholeness.” 
― Madeleine L'Engle

I've always wished I could draw, paint, sketch... Ever since Bob Ross' The Joy of Painting gentle voice urged us on, Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings took us on his adventures and  Commander Mark in the Secret City shared all his secrets,  it's always been one of those things "I would one day get to."

A few weeks ago, I finally decided to give it a go and bought a ton of watercolor and oil paints, a few canvases and a ton of brushes.

My first one was going to be a horizon on the water but it turned out to be Amapolas (Poppies) and so my second go, I did the horizon. They're not stunning masterpieces but I cannot tell you how very still I felt my mind go while I was working on them.
