He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.” ― Roald Dahl

I’ve been struggling a bit lately with some chronic pain and anxiety but today I made the spontaneous decision to paint - which I haven’t properly done in over a year - and I am feeling so, so delightful. I haven’t felt this at ease in a long time. I just put on some tunes and sat and made art and my heart feels so light. I feel okay. LOOK AT THE PASTEL COLOURS! I F*CKING LOVE PASTELS! I’ve never been a confident painter, but I was able to mask that by putting my doodling to use over it and I’m sooooo pleased with the result. (The one on the right - the left isn’t finished yet.) 

PAINTING IS TRICKY AND SO IS LIFE, BUT I GUESS THEY BOTH TURN OUT OKAY IN THE END!!
