While navigating several months of lockdown at the beginning of the pandemic, I decided to start experimenting with the children's watercolors and ultra-washable paints – as a fun activity to do together, even though I had never painted before. Unexpectedly, this quickly developed into a hobby for me, and I decided to purchase some "grownup" paints and media. These are my amateurish attempts, but they all have a lot of heart in them.
