You Can't Calm the Storm.....Owl Painting...

Well this past week, (actually month) has been a stressful and so I needed a diversion...something to take my stress and turn it into something possitive. I had found this quote on Pinterest...I love pinterest....and it was exactly what I needed to hear...and what inspired me to do this painting. "You can't calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass."
I love that. And it is so darn true...i really need to learn to stop learn that God is in control and let him have it. I can pray for peace...but I need to learn to let go and let God handle it. 
I am inspired by Allen Designs, her cooky type animals...and colors along with Misty Lacefield and what she taught me in her class with her use of colors and making backgrounds. Just find such peace when Im in the middle of a painting, with paint on my hands...just totally engolfed in the process...thinking of the quote as it guides you along. 
I used acrylic paints for it all. for the fine work I did use my doodle pen from Scarlet Lime shop. Thanks for stopping by.
