It would seem as I get older, I sleep less....WAY less.....especially during the weekdays....then I crash on Saturday and Sundays and can barely wake up in the morning....anyone else like that? And yet, somehow, I still -- miraculously -- am able to function....I have no idea how....
I've been modifying my exercise regimen - changing it up from day time to night time to help me sleep better but that has its downfall. I'm too tired and lazy to exercise at night so I do it during the day when I'm most energetic.....but obviously it's not making me tired 'enough' to fall asleep naturally...does that make any sense?
So, hence, here I am...almost midnight....painting and blogging....
Are you getting tired of my flowers yet? I thought I'd give it a try with some detail on a peony....it looks similar to a rose, doesn't it? Hard to differentiate the two on paper, so I tried to give the petals a different shape.
I kept the single flower as the focal point and added just a few flourishes. Kinda fun mixing up the colors on the leaves.
And earlier in the day, I painted a small blue cacti plant....such the rage nowadays...cactus.....succulents....they're everywhere! This is just a very sweet little number....nothing complicated about it....used only 4 colors, blues, black, white, and brown:
That's it for now....enjoy the rest of your weekend! xo
