Atelier News

I hope you are all doing well!

This week as been a roller coaster of  emotions! Self-doubt, my old friend, has been playing the usual tape in my head making me second guess my every decisions, criticizing my work and making me want to generally just run away, far, far away.

Of course this is not an option! So I tried to listen very hard to that little voice completely hidden by Self-Doubt, but who is also always there: Confidence. It’s not easy, but if you are going through something similar, hang in there and try to move forward, even if it’s with the speed of a geriatric tortoise. It’s also so important to take the time to acknowledge the good things that are being done instead of focusing on what is not so successful or yet to be done. Finally, I find that going back to the basics is always a good idea when in doubt. In my case, that means, practising, drawing and painting.

And if everything fails, there are always flowers!

New at the boutique

This week, I bring you a bit of my heritage with this cute Vietnamese scene featuring this year’s Lunar New Year zodiac sign: the Ox!

I also made some round bookmarks with the last mushroom paintings I painted. I really like this format: it’s adorable!

And I put some items on sale, so go take a look at the store!
