Peonies

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

Oh Tif! Chamomille seems to help me, don't think you like tea but also warm milk? I can't imagine your super power yoga not helping you sleep. Yikes!! But I must say you create beautiful works of art late at night! Really pretty. hugs -- Natalia.
