The first month of 2024 is already done!
I am honestly still writing 2023 on a lot of things. Is anyone else totally bad with writing the new year on dates for a while? I usually finally accept it’s a new year around February.
This has been an excellent month for my small business! I am so thankful and blessed. Every year I hope to grow and do better than the year before, and so far, I am off to a great start.
Now that I sell quite a bit on my shop website, I always love seeing the orders and what people pick. The picture above was a unique card order from my website!
Another highlight of January is spending time with my sweet gummy bear, who I cannot wait to teach art to. 🙂 He has grown so MUCH in January. Jumping from 6-month clothing right into 9-month clothing.
Art I’ve Created
This month I finished up some old pieces that I will share eventually but my new piece of the month is called “Moonlit Florals” and I LOVED creating it.
I didn’t have much plan in mind when I sat down to start creating. I just knew I wanted a full moon and some flowers and went from there. This piece is made up of watercolor, and oil pastels, then was finished up with some digital details.
Things I’m Loving
I love my new watercolor palette! I recently shared a blog all about my new custom watercolor palette. So if you’re interested in reading more about it to see what colors I use, the brand, etc, check out that post!
I bought some new watercolor brushes on Amazon and they have been nice to work with. Personally, I don’t invest a lot of money into brushes because I beat them up. I prefer to invest in quality paint and paper, which I think is the most important.
This brush set is synthetic squirrel hair and they are very affordable. I definitely recommend them if you are looking for affordable watercolor brushes.
Goodbye January, Hello February!
