Let go. Let the idea take you where it will. Start. The talk of artists these days. Great ones too. Yes simple shapes. Dada art. The idea is that everything is art. Nature is one big masterpiece. When we create we just have to create. Let it be. I chose the paper with a candy store pattern. Then cut shapes,toss and glue.

Ok so I rearranged a few of the sames.

I need to get back to me. Not the me I usually carry around but the true me. Creating from my zone. Not the zone of if this wil work. No judging just listening. I want to create more of the work that speaks to me.

Looking at my shop, I see lots of work that speaks to me. Here’s to more of that. There’s a few that don’t.

Have a good Sunday!

My version of a Mexican Marigold

I’ve been looking at doors, homes, water, art, people, food… beauty from around the world. I love learning about culture. Oh and the dragon bridge in Vietnam. In my next adventure I will be drawing, sketching and writing for a new book Around The World. I may still do a few flowers. SOmething else always comes up.

Here’s to learning how to be a better me by learning about others.

One of my favorites

…just looking at my work. I like these words. Note to self. Keep creating for you. Creating makes you a better person.

I am here

Corita Kent. Yes my collage work here is inspired by Corita. Her work was so simple and relatable. I could have learned so much with her as my teacher. I read her book and I am learning. What am I saying.

One of my favorites. I worked on this Peacock for a few days. I painted the texture with a small flat tree gumball. My inspriation was Eric Carle. I wanted to use color and texture to show the wonderful pattern and color in this world. I painted several texture papers. Then let my eyes choose the color scheme. Good job Thank you for subscribing.

Circle fish

Paint circles. Then turn the circles into something. I read these words on Saturday.

We are bound together in this ocean of love.

There’s interesting color and patterns in the ocean. I am definitely going to have to paint more fish. I explored lots of fish in Different Is Beautiful.

Find a circle object to stamp with. A candle lid could make a cool fish pattern!

Keep Going

I painted these flowers a few weeks ago. Time flies when you are in peace. This was part of my hand painting floral series. You create a hand fist and stamp with the bottom of your hand. You stamp in a circular motion. The color was all wrong. I kept it in a keep going pile. Sometimes work has an agenda of it’s own. Nothing a little oil pastel and pencil couldn’t fix.

Next week I want to go over my plans for the remainder of the year. Reflect on my work and work on projects, see where my thoughts lead me. Beginning November 1st I begin celebrations and exploring the world. Dia De Los Muertos is a perfect time to start.

CreativelyHue is the new name.

How to make leaves-india ink +tracing paper

Years ago I did a food coloring fall tree. It was for an RSP class. I thought I had the images but I deleted them. I should check my backup phone files. I deleted them. Here’s an interesting link. Today I’m going to recreate this project. Only instead of coffee filters and food coloring I’ll be using India ink and tracing paper. Perhaps leaves too. Tracing paper has a different texture and weight than filter paper.

What a great idea! I could use tracing paper for collage. Thick acrylic paint with interesting textures. Adding drops of color to a ceramic plate and then pressing the paper into the paint works great. Eyedropper not so good.

I am grateful for every opportunity that I have to share my art. I welcome many more days. I believe it’s official . I like the name Creatively Hue. I am all about creating for a better you. By the way I keep a collection of all things that insprie my work. Yesterday I added a bunch of Corita Kent work to my hand lettering board. She’s such and inspiration.
