KISSING THE SHORELINE

Gouache, oil pencil and archival ink on watercolour paper
Original status: SOLD

Inspired by the quote:

” Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away.”

Although we may be far apart at times, I know that you will return to me with love.

EMBRACE YOURSELF

Original status: AVAILABLE
Size: 9″ x 12″

The painting started from a dark place with a shadow embracing the girl in the artwork. I later decided to change the shadow into strands of light. It feels alot more airy and more whole this way, so I’m glad that I made the change.

Don’t be so hard on yourself.

Let your inner light embrace you.

Does it feel warm?
