Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, learning, and the arts. She is my painting for week 1 of 2016.

Watercolors are not my strongest medium. I prefer gouache. If you make a mistake in gouache, you can paint over it. Yeah, maybe the layer will lift a little, but you can cover up a mistake. Watercolors? Nope. Nopity nope nope.

But, the whole point of doing a painting a week is to grow, right? And my husband, who works primarily in watercolor, encouraged me.

Saraswati is one of his favorite goddesses. She’s also the goddess of music and my husband loves playing the guitar. When I finished this painting, I gave it to him. Aren’t I awesome? 😛

So far, so good with the painting a week challenge. Not sure what I’m going to do for week 2 buuut, I’m definitely excited!

I’ve got this painting up in the Etsy shop as cards. I’ll have prints listed soon… if anyone is interested 😀
