I learned an important lesson while making these. If you are spray painting outside in the summer make sure your material doesn’t warp in the sun. Lesson learned. But I think it gives it character.
I was really happy with the way this one turned out. I did it a little bit backwards. I painted over the abstract background and used it it as a layer of the stencil.
This piece also represents an improvement in my mental state. I decided to force myself out of my comfort zone. After battling an army of self doubt I gathered up all my courage an opened a store on Etsy. This was a HUGE step for me. But once again as soon as I was finished setting it up I had this awesome feeling of accomplishment. That feeling only got better when I sold this piece. I was so excited. I squealed the news to my husband and called my mom. I felt like I could really call myself an artist now.
The lesson I learned is that there are some great things waiting for us outside our comfort zone
