Recently, I took the major step of buying a house. After a tumultuous few weeks of real-estate buying stress, I christened my new studio by creating this little lady, the newest edition to my ongoing Curly Girl series. I saw my studio as a new beginning, and decided to go back to basics by creating a painting simply for the fun of it. I hope the flowing lines and mix of teal, magenta and lemon conveys the carefree joy of its creation. Sometimes, its best to set aside everything and just create.
