About Me

My photo
I am a person with a very energetic, bubbly, and optimistic attitude. I can be extremely random, which I am sure can be both entertaining and/or extremely annoying ^_^ But the most important thing is that I am saved by Christ, and He is my strength and salvation! I love talking about my Lord, and living my life for His glory :) Along the way I like to doodle what I see or imagine.

Lessons Learned :)

I definitely don't see myself as an abstract artist, but painting in abstract has definitely helped me learn a lot of basic skills in watercolor. So in the watercolor class I took I started out trying to be as realistic as possible and tried to get every detail, but the instructor encouraged all of us to think outside of the box and try doing it her way. And I don't think I would have improved as much if I hadn't painted in an abstract way! I also love trying to demonstrate an object with as little as possible and I think that artists that can are very talented ^_^

So here are a couple of the paintings I did in the class. They are mostly in chronological order. Hope you guys like them!

This last one is definitely my favorite. It kind of ending up being a weird mixture of realistic and abstract that I really feel is kind of balanced.


  1. I love this, Abby! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. Those are beautiful! I think my favourites are the second and the fifth. :)
