My final painting for week 2 of #brushtober! This is the first time this month that I actually got into the flow of painting and stopped fighting with the medium. I think it’s because I stepped out of the ‘drawing’ mindset and went into the ‘painting’ mindset. The story behind it is quite personal: I’m someone who ruminates a lot, and especially with all of the events of this year, my mind has felt like such a chaotic place. Especially when I’m just sitting around with nothing to do, my thoughts go wild and it can be overwhelming. So I try to keep myself busy and just accept that this is how my brain works ~ and focus on the positive, like the fact that I have time to paint and discover new things!
