Loneliness improved my Art and Mindset 🌱 Forest Visit + Paint with me ✨ Cozy Art Vlog

Beeing alone can be great too! Showing you in this video how loneliness helped me to improve my Painting skills and overall mindset. Influence from outside can be so powerfull but did you ever listened to you inner Voice? How powerfull that one can be too? When you learn to trust your intuition, your path in life can become more clear. And beside that talk I will show you the process of a big oilpainting and we will visit a big forest . Everything is filmed and edited by myself.
Hope you enjoy this Art Vlog❣️

  1. Valerie, I watched the start of your painting journey and now seeing you paint, you have improved beyond belief.
    Well done, lovely girl, from a fellow artist.

  2. The fact that she completed the work with her ideas was cool! And I respected her as it was a result of effort. I was satisfied with observing the concrete process of painting.😊

  3. I Just discovered your channel 2 days ago and I have already see all your videos while practicing painting (some of them more than once). You and your videos are absolutly lovely omg i´m gonna cry 😭😭😭😭😭💗
