I begin my process by looking at Instagram first under the nature and design hashtags.  I will usually spend 5-10 minutes and just sift there to see what images have been posted.  From there I screen shot somethings that caught my eye.  Once I have many images, I go through them and determine which ones I can paint without copying the original. 

With whatever I paint, I try to not make it look exactly like the original picture so that I can put my own spin on it.  I use each image as a reference and make my own.  In this case I am painting a puffer fish, three pots of plants and some dandelions.

I have learned in life that nothing is ever perfect.  I don't even believe in the word called perfection.  In my opinion, there is no such thing.  Something will always be just a little off and I dig that.  In this video I talk about perfection, while painting a bird and two lizards.

Recently, I challenged myself of a 30 day sketchbook challenge.  Once a day for 30 days I draw/write/paint in a DIY sketchbook.  Think of it as a way of journaling. 

I can't sit and write for hours, but I can sit and paint for days.  I will do an updated video about this challenge and how I fared etc.
