So I went back to what soothes my frazzled nerves and calm my chaotic mind – my arts. I don’t know why but I just feel so much at peace, and very happy doing arts quietly at home. And that means, most of the time, I just have to turn my back on my social life. I just feel that, with all that has happened and how I almost had a nervous breakdown, I do deserve some quiet, and me-time.
I have been watching a lot of tutorial on watercolor arts, lettering, and illustration for tips and tricks. I still haven’t found my real “voice” and style. All I know is that I am drawn to a lot of colors. I like wavy lines, and I prefer distorted arts like rules do not apply with proportions and perspectives. I feel like more of a renegade artist, really. 🙂 I just want to do what I want but without offending real artists out there who studied years and years to master their craft. I just feel that one should do art for art’s sake. And art is perfectly imperfect and to that, I’ll follow what my heart loves – whimsical!
I’ve practice on some quotes and an illustration of a pizza which I gave a family friend as a gift because they loved pizza! I have been pouring a bit of my heart and soul with my work lately. They are mostly what makes me smile, and words that lift me up.
Here are my weekend arts. I hope you like them. Give me some love at IG. 🙂 Thanks!

Another weekend project went to a family that I love dearly. They love eating Italian food like pizza. So, let me draw them a pizza hahaha. I’m the kind of person who would rather “create” stuff to give my family and friends because I really love to spend a lot of time, and effort in all my crafts and artworks. It makes me happy to create stuff that calms my chaotic brain. I am happier when the recipients are happy. It makes all the time and effort spent all worth the while. ❤️ #iamwhimsyarts #iamwhimsy #giftforafamily #watercolorartbyria #illustrationbyria #pizza #weekendprojects #happyart
Practicing on my watercolor brush lettering and leaves.
Lastly, here’s something to inspire us to be better humans, and to put our trust in the Lord.
