About two years ago I had this idea for a painting.
It was based on the Princess + the Pea story which has always fascinated me. I mean really who would feel a pea through all those mattresses? I used to make my bed and find books, barbie dolls, or other random things under my mattress + I never had a restless night sleep....
...well I suppose we all know what that means then!
With this particular idea, I knew. I knew how I would do it, how it would be constructed, and what materials I would use.
I just knew.
So I scribbled in my sketchbook, a pencil sketch with a few lines + stick figure girl.
But two years ago I lacked the skill + the confidence to paint it.
A year ago, I lacked the materials + the confidence to paint it.
Last week, I finally had all the materials to paint it, + although I wasn't sure how it would turn out, I decided that it was now or never.

I just love how it turned out in the end.
And it is just as I imagined.
It is just so satisfying when your painting in your head, translates to the paper!
So I am ending my week on a bit of a high + what was the high point of your week? I would love it if you shared below...
Have a great weekend.
