I scraped off my paint palette to start a new painting, and it inspired me to make this surface pattern design, and gave me a vision for my next sewing project (Simplicity 8051). This design should be available soon as fabric, wallpaper, and gift wrap in my Spoonflower shop. #design #surfacedesign #pattern #painting #painter #oilpainting #art #artist #artoninstagram #fashion #sewing #spoonflower #wip #designidea #paintpalette

My first Bob Ross painting! It's a lot harder than he makes it look, and due to my mistake, my painting has algae water like the diving pool in Rio. This took about an hour, oil on 16×20 canvas. #oilpaint #oilpainting #landscape #landscapepainting #bobross #bobrosspainting #art #artoninstagram #oiloncanvas #happylittletrees

Evolution of a painting. Sometimes, I feel like I am not making any progress working on one part for so long, so I like to take progress pictures after every painting session to show me how far it has come since the last time I put down the paintbrush. Here are a few to show the progression. #painting #oilpaint #oilpainting #oiloncanvas #art #fineart #workinprogress #wip #bellydance #bellydancer #shamadan #dance #dancer #artoninstagram #portraitpainting

I can finally share what I have been working on this past month! This portrait of a friend and dance mate ( @sarabie949 ) has been in my head for over a year. I took the reference photos A WHOLE YEAR ago and I only just got to working on it. But it's finally finished! I felt really good the whole time I was working on this, and kept thinking, "Man, oil paints are MY JAM!" Oil on 24×36 canvas. #painting #oilpaint #oilpainting #fineart #dance #bellydance #shamadan #portrait #portraitpainting

We are out to dinner with our good friends, The Selgas, to celebrate my birthday at The Olde Ship, and appropriately enough, I wore my London skirt, which I made from my London Ink border print available in my Spoonflower shop!

Time lapse of the Benedict Cumberbatch sketch. I could have done better with the likeness. Just have to keep practicing. #drawings #timelapsedrawing #timelapse #charcoaldrawing #sketch #benedictcumberbatch #sherlock #sherlockholmes #sherlocked #bbcsherlock #art #artoninstagram #portraitdrawing

Finally built a new computer, and with tech improvements came an aesthetic improvement for my workspace, putting up these tourism posters for Italy on the bare wall. I think I am officially obsessed. Anyway, my work flow is vastly improved, and as a bonus it's fast AF so I can play all the new games now. #homedecor #workspace #homeoffice #italy
