...all I could think of was flowers by KatePowellArt ...all I could think of was flowers by KatePowellArt

Here is my latest drawing, based on Natalya Lobanova’s quote “I tried to draw my soul but all I could think of was flowers”

I’m trying to express my frustration with myself; I have all these thoughts and feelings inside me but when I try to translate them to paper I end up with a load of flowers and butterflies every time. Maybe it’s not a bad thing, but I just want to make more personal art, I don’t want it to just look ‘pretty’, I want it to mean something.

Possibly frustrating; certainly beautiful. You are not alone in that struggle; we are all fighting that same issue, one way or another.
