Hey ya’ll! Did you know that May 30 is National Creativity Day? If you didn’t know, don’t feel bad because I just found out myself lol. For this years National Creativity Day, I painted this picture via a virtual paint and sip (because you know Ms.Covid-19 still has us on lockdown 🙄 lol) with a dope artist who goes by Pink Lo Mein.

Pink Lo Mein  is from Houston TX and I’ve been a fan of her artwork for years. Her talent is insane and I love how she uses all these vibrant colors in her artwork that represents us Black women. Here is just some of her work but you can find and even buy some one her of a kind pieces via her website.

I have attended two of her virtual paint and sips so far and they are so much fun! She is so thorough and patient and it’s just a great way to relax and it’s also free! This last virtual paint and sip was on Mother’s Day but being that I was with mom all day, I missed it. So I ended up catching the replay of her Instagram live and just finished painting everything once I had some more free time. Would you like to see how it went? Just press play! 

Pretty cool right? I had such a great time and if you would like to participate in her last virtual paint and sip that will be held on June 13, 2020 then head on over to her website or her IG page for more details. 

I haven’t painted much since I was a kid but I’m glad that I am starting to get back into it again. I forgot how much fun it is to paint plus it helps me de-stress a lot. I can’t thank Pink Lo Mein enough for these virtual paint and sips; they really have been a blessing for me.  Thank you all for tuning in, make sure you check out Pink Lo Mein’s artwork and Happy National Creativity day to all my fellow creatives out there!

Until next time loves…
