A rose's rarest essence lives in the thorn. A thorn defends the rose, harming only those who would steal the blossom. Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again. The rose is a flower of love.
I have tried on several occasions in my lifetime to be a watercolor artist. I have always loved the vibrance and softness of the colors. Here is like try #5 in my almost 36 years. I likey. Now.... my brain is on overdrive. I am going to have much more coming up. This was VERY VERY relaxing. Therapeutic. Needed. I'm going to pay the price for letting Kaiya sleep when we got home from errands just so I had some time to myself doing something that wasn't for someone or something. My mental health has taken a serious dive this year and it affects everything around me. Tapping into my creative side helps. Baking. Wannabe painting. Jewelry making. Writing. Cooking. Decorating.
I'm no picasso but dem pineapples doe.
Day 7: Shy
Sorry for not posting anything over the weekend, it took me forever to decide which GoT character would suit the seventh prompt! Everyone is super assertive and badass. Ultimately I settled on the lovely Missandei because of all the little sideways glances she and Grey Worm shared when they first met. Now she is super strong and opinionated and takes pride in her opinions and is happy to make them known. I've had a huge crush on her from the beginning, but I've fallen more and more in love with her as the series has progressed. She seems the most sane of all the female characters at the moment 💖 I struggled a bit with this portrait, I thought it would be her hair, but it was actually the highlights and shadows on her skin! I think they turned out super wonky -___-
