orion nebula

Ramblings

I'm painting nebulae this week as well as starting a celestial siren. I'm constantly cleaning my brushes and plucking cat hair off my paintings. That's fine though. Micah has a birthday coming up and the weather has been in the 70s the past few days. I've been enjoying the afternoon rays and the pale winter sunsets. I don't know what I'd do without sunlight. I'm not sure what Rina would do without sunlight either. That's all for now. 

Studio Update

It's been abnormally cold in Austin the past few days and I've been drinking green tea from my favorite mug and burning candles in the studio. The heater is also on and Rina is being very cuddly, which is nice aside from the cat hair that keeps getting in my painting. 

I'm working on several paintings at the moment, including this round panel of the Orion Nebula. I've been using a lot of prussian blue lately and it's definitely becoming a favorite. I fall in love with new colors everyday. 

I also just got these pretty lights from Urban Outfitters here and love them so much. They're tiny rosebuds! Eee, they're so pretty. 

I have more nebulae in the works as well as some celestial sirens. I'm excited about it. Updates later! Have a lovely weekend!
