I have been so anxious and insomniac these last couple of days. The news is so depressing. With so much going on in the world, I kept thinking what could possibly put my mind at ease. For me, art is an instant stress reliever even if the relief is temporary. I am happiest when I am creating.
I always wanted to go to one of those "Paint & Sip" events. It just seems like a great event to go to with friends or your significant other. I am not a skilled painter by any means but I know I'd enjoy the experience. I thought to myself, hey you can totally do this at home! You have paint and a canvas! I wanted to paint something simple without too many details. I decided to go with a butterfly because of its significance. I incorporated cool colors into my painting because I like dark hues. I made myself a pineapple mimosa and painted away! I am pretty satisfied with my painting. It was fun! I'll try to paint more often. What activities do you enjoy? Have you gone to one of these events?
P.S. All you need for pineapple mimosa's is sparkling wine or champagne, pineapple juice and pineapple chunks to garnish the rim of your glass. It is so yummy! :D
Below are my some of my favorite butterfly quotes:
"The wings of transformation are born of patience and struggle."
"Butterflies can't see their wings. They can't see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that too."
"Just when a caterpillar thought the world was over it became a butterfly."
