It was a pleasure working with Clinique to create this little piece of art for their #StartBetter campaign. If you’re anything like me, you have a lot of goals, and not a lot of time on your hands. This year, I made it a priority to pick up watercoloring again. I hadn’t touched my brushes since college, but setting a small goal of creating one painting a week helped kick-start a new hobby and reignite an old love for the medium. Now, I tend to make two or three a week just because I enjoy it so much! I’ve even signed up to take a printmaking class at School of Visual Arts here in the city this Fall… just for the fun of it. It’s important to see and celebrate how a single baby step can inspire and empower in ways you never imagined.
It was a joy to work in watercolor for this commission, as the theme of the #StartBetter campaign is to start something new. Don’t mind if I do. Now I just need to #StartBetter at working out. Who’s with me?! (If you need some inspiration, watch the Manifesto!)
