love your beautiful self...

Hello my fabulous friends!

 I don't know about you, but sometime I need to be reminded to be gentle with myself, and to love myself... This GORGEOUS peacock from Tracey Hey is the perfect reminder!

This beautiful bird was SO fun to paint!  All those feathers took a while, but once I got in the rhythm, it was really relaxing!  

To add just a bit of sparkle, I added a little metallic gold watercolor over the purple hearts. It is subtle, but I love how it turned out. I need to remember to pull out my metallic watercolors more often!

And just in case YOU need to hear this..

Love your BEAUTIFUL self!!! 

See you soon!
