What a beautiful experience this was! I have a new hobby!

So, in my earlier post, I was looking for a way to honor the Goddess and the full moon and I decided that, for the first time in my life, I would paint something related and offer it to the beautiful Goddess Mother. So here goes :slight_smile:

I have never painted in my life, so this is far from being perfect, and I was drawn to this painting tutorial so I did it.

I know it’s full of errors, but boy am I proud of this creation :slight_smile: I think I found a new hobby :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: I have been thinking about painting for so long (like, literally years) and I finally did it! I loved every moment of it! I dedicated this painting to the Goddess :heart:

I’m with everyone else- you’ve never painted in your life!?! Gosh, if I saw this in an art gallery I wouldn’t doubt it for a second- this is a gorgeous piece, @Peridot! :clap: I think you’ve uncovered a new secret talent of yours :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :art::sparkles:

The moon is stunning- it seems to glow in the sky and has the fine details that make it look realistic. You’ve captured and enhanced it’s gentle glow on the water and framed it all with some beautiful tree silhouettes- I’m not a professional artist or anything, but in my book this piece is perfect! You did a really fantastic job and it is a pleasure to see- thank you for sharing it! It really is a wonderful offering to your Goddess :heart::full_moon_with_face:

I would say you found a fulfilling hobby because that painting, as your first, is amazing & I don’t know where you see these errors, but I honestly think that is you criticizing yourself harder than you need to be. You did an amazing job on this representation of the full moon. Gorgeous! :star_struck: :paintbrush:
