It's all happening

Lately it seems like inspiration is everywhere I look, and my brain is buzzing with ideas! I can't tell you how great it is after spending the first half of the year struggling to make progress and feeling pretty frustrated and unmotivated, to be honest. I'm not sure what sparked the change, but I'm really excited again about art and illustration and a whole bunch of other creative stuff too. I've been filling up pages and pages with sketches and ideas. The tough part, of course, is getting my ideas off the page and out into the world as finished projects. (That is always the struggle, but I'm working on it!) I'm doing a lot of creative experimenting and learning too, and it's been really fun!

So what does any of that have to do with pink roses? Not a thing, haha. I just thought they were pretty and wanted to share. We passed by them after sunset, when it was probably really too dark for photos (and they did come out a little overexposed), but I ended up liking them all the same.

Hope your week is awesome. xo, Mary
