Forgiving yourself is hard

For all the wrongs

You perceive you have done.

Harder still when grief exists

It plays on your mind

Along with all of the ‘what ifs’.

No matter how much time does pass

It looms and taints and hangs

In heart and mind.

Until the day comes

When you hear yourself say,

not a whisper or mutter

but with confidence and faith;

“It wasn’t your fault, I forgive you, it’s ok.”

‘Broken Glass’ – watercolour on 300gsm watercolour paper, 21 x 30cm

This abstract piece is titled broken glass as it makes me think of stained glass that has been cracked and split but not fully broken into pieces. I photographed the painting in a frame to show what it looks like fitted into a plain white frame which sets off the white lines in the painting beautifully.

The original painting is available for sale, without the frame, for £35 with free basic UK postage through Royal Mail or a courier for an additional fee. International postage will be charged on an individual basis. If you are local to me collection can also be arranged for free. Contact me through my email to buy or for more information: michelwatsonart@gmail.com

Various prints of this painting are also available through my Redbubble Store

Inktober 2019 – Week 1

This is the first time I have ever done the inktober challenge, or even thought about it really. Some might say that I’m not doing it properly given that I am focusing more on what I want to do every day with my own ‘rules’ and restrictions, but whatever, the important thing for me is to do it every day.

Rather than stick to the given prompts for the month I am focusing on creating a doodle a day on a page in my A6 sketchbook in black ink. Each day is started with a small circle in the centre of the page and I have been doodling from there.

My original thought had been to create a mandala a day, however, that went out of the window on the very first day when a strange ‘heart’ doodle came out to play.

Days 1 – 7 inktober doodles:

So why just doodles? Why not follow the prompts? Well it’s not just because I’m somewhat awkward and rebellious! I knew a doodle a day I could do. No matter how much work I have or how much else I have going on this month I can manage a small doodle that takes, at minimum, 10 minutes. If I have longer to spend on it one day, great! If it fills the A6 page, also great! If it’s just a small drawing on the page then that’s great too! It is all about setting that goal, being consistent and achieving it, something which set prompts work against, for me at least, as they add stress and push me into an unhealthy, perfectionist mindset which will ultimately end up with me giving up halfway through. At this point in my life I know, intimately, how my mind works.

Are you doing inktober this year? If so what are your goals and ‘rules’ for it? If not, what is stopping you from trying it out?

‘Wolf In The Garden’ – acrylic on canvas, 30.5 x 40.5 x 1.5cm

There is always something magical in my mind when I paint and see something in the painting by the end of it; it is one of the things I particularly love about my process and abstract work in general. It is shown here with a couple of household items for a visual representation of the scale of the painting.

The original painting is available for sale for £150 with free basic UK postage through Royal Mail or a courier for an additional fee. International postage will be charged on an individual basis. If you are local to me collection can also be arranged for free. Contact me through my email to buy or for more information: michelwatsonart@gmail.com
