It’s finished, it’s framed and it’s finals week 😅 I’ll post the full piece after the opening this Saturday, for now I’m keeping it under wraps ;)))
I have two exams tomorrow to study for, but all I want to do is turn on a musical and brew some blackberry tea and paint all day. So here’s a swipe through gallery of the process throughout the last two months to help myself through this trying Monday 🤓
I’m excited for finals to be over so I can have all the late painting&tea&music&netflix nights without worrying about assignments for a little while ❤️❤️❤️ LIFE IS LOVELY EVEN WITH FINALS I HOPE YOU ALL DO WELL AND TREAT YOURSELVES LIKE YOU WOULD YOUR BEST FRIEND ❤️❤️❤️
((fun fact the red polish on my thumbnail is in fact the only nail that is painted bc I painted one and then forgot to do the rest but it represents my efforts in this pic v nicely))
Christmas is fast approaching. 🎄🎁 If you are wanting something to arrive by Christmas from my Etsy Shop, tomorrow night before midnight EST is my deadline for domestic orders. The link to my Etsy shop is in my Instagram profile.
“Tis the witching time of night,
Orbed is the moon and bright,
And the stars they glisten, glisten,
Seeming with bright eyes to listen —“

TONIGHT I printed 11 holiday cards for friends & fam and also did the first test on my trial shirts while I had everything inked-up and filthy(a lesson learned: use more ink for fabric than you would for paper - DUH). The cards were kind of a trial in “mass-produced” prints, and couldn’t have gone better 🎉🎉 I’d like to thank the academy as well as Molfy’s gin for killing my nerves in the process thus yielding these DOPE results 💕
