Watercolor Wednesday

I've been slacking on Watercolor Wednesday the past few weeks and I've been missing it as a de-stresser. Lately I've been feeling very anxious and have been waking up with a sore jaw. Have any of you experienced this? I consulted Dr.Google (I know they advise against this but he gives such great diagnostics and usually leads one to believe they are dying of multiple ailments...I need this heads up!!) and apparently sore jaw in the morning means you are clenching or grinding your teeth at night. I do NOT like the sounds of that one bit. Hopefully the cottage this week will help me relax.

Anyways, I painted this on Monday and woke up considerably less sore on Tuesday. I've said it before, but painting really is a mind clearing process. While it's not a perfect painting, it is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Today's watercolor is inspired by a vignette from the amazingly fierce Kelly Wearstler. Girl kills it EVERY.DAMN.TIME. She is fearless in her designs, and I admire her so much.

Happy Hump Day lovelies!

ugh, me too! The exact same thing, started at the start of this year (my first year post-study). My doc said to take ibuprofen before bed to relax the jaw. Fun times!
P.S LOVE your watercolours. You can def make money off those :)

Beautiful work (as usual) Tiff... BTW I grind my teeth at night and eventually had to get a night guard (that I don't wear enough)... even though I don't wear it as much as I should -- it does help when I wear it. You can buy a cheapo plastic one at local drugstores to see if that helps before seeing a dentist. Hope this helps! Have fun at the cottage! xoxo
