Paradise Dreams - I've been really wanting to play around with textures in my artwork lately and when I was working on this piece I sent my bestie photos showing her.
She loves the texture. I made a comment that "I wasn't sure if I want to sell this part of me yet or this type of artwork yet" and she asked "why??". My answer was "fear of judgement". She just laughed. I now realised that this was a little silly of me. No matter what I paint or what my 'style' is - there will always be judgement out there. The beautiful thing about art is that it will always be for someone. It will always connect with someone, maybe not everyone but always someone. It is such a rollercoaster journey and I need to constantly remind myself that as long as it makes me happy that's what I need to follow always.
