I love both acrylics and watercolor. Paintings stimulate a different part of my brain than digital art or simply sketching with pens or pencils. It's a relaxing and meditating art form that I love. Most of my paintings, however, are not for myself. Majority of my paintings are gifts. I've given them as gifts at Christmas, house warming parties, bridal shower gifts, and baby shower gifts. Each painting takes anywhere from 2-8 hours to complete depending on medium, size, and complexity.
