Dana paints stuff!

  • 2020 was a year of emotional turmoil for myself and everyone else in the world.
    Music, videogames, and books have always been great distractions to escape reality, but in the fall, I discovered a new catharsis: watercolor painting.
    With the exception of the third image, the rest are outlines I downloaded and traced, and painted the inside. Maybe one day I'll get better at drawing and I won't have to rely on tracing outlines.

    Here's my top 5...

  • It's beautiful! I love the colors and contrast.

    And it doesn't matter if you trace or use other ways to get started. Creating someting and havening fun is the important part about art. :)

  • That's some seriously beautiful artwork Dana! <3


    Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
    Tochter aus Elysium!
    Wir betreten feuertrunken,
    Himmlische dein Heiligtum!
    Deine zauber binden wieder
    Was die Mode streng geteilt;
    Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
    Wo dein saftner Flügel weilt!

  • With the recurring star pattern that you also use as your avatar I get the impression that you are looking for your place in the universe.

    It's true, I'm trying to be the best version of myself and striving to find the perfect place for myself in the universe we live in.

    I'm also big into astronomy, constellations, and in a spiritual sense...astrology as well.
