New Year, New Pau!

NEW YEAR

The year 2015 had lessons to learn – and 2016 is about getting back on track.

NEW YEAR

I’m looking forward to the future with open eyes and an open heart . I’ve moved into a new home, with new resolutions, ready to take on anything! Every day is another opportunity to push yourself – to become a better you.

The past month  I’ve had some time to make more sketches… and started a book club with 3 girlfriends. All from the Valley, we love to read and started the club off with Brooklyn by Colm Toibin.  I just finished I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou and thought it’d be cool to draw just her eyes because she was a woman with so much soul..

NEW YEAR

I drew Steve Harvey after his hilarious fail on National television. His face is too good not to draw!

NEW YEAR

I’ll keep posting new work since one of my resolutions is to keep this blog updated with new work, artists who inspire me, trips I take, and Beauty/Fashion ideas I can’t help but share. Thanks for checking out my blog and come back tomorrow for Makeup Monday!


 

2016 Reminders:

  • Pay it forward.
  • You get what you give.
  • Work on your craft everyday.
  • Keep organized and throw out the junk.
  • Stay humble.
  • Try new things.
  • Stay true to yourself.
  • Keep a strong relationship with God.
  • Do more, say less.
  • Forgive but don’t forget.
  • Take care of the temple you call your body!

 


 

Also, it’s my birthday month! I’m embracing 29 with a kick-ass attitude.

The year of PAU.
