Surface Design seems like a good idea! These flowers were created with a series of motions made with a flat brush. Not even sure how I mixed this beautiful color. A little red? Oh right it was just painting and that led to PLAY
The just painting and PLAY is part of the 100 ways to flower with power book. It’s all together only I need to physically do it. I have more writing and I’ll start next week.
Keep going. Keep making. Keep creating. There will be days of distration and nothing feels right.Today was one of those days. My new watercolor brushes are not suitable for Acrylic even though the listing says so. The paint dried up qick. It is a warm day. No moon, no stars just me and my ideas until I had to make a phone call or answer one. It is so important to have your creative space and allow for no distraction. One wrong thought can take you out of your zone. I was working on too many ideas when all I needed was one good idea.
I was determined to keep making. Not bad. Not bad at all. I mixed up a good yellow ochcre, pink and peach. There’s always tomorrow.
To walk with nothing to do but look around and admire the color, shapes and texture is…amazing. You for a moment breath and feel such a peace. It’s like yes keep on enjoying the view, I am here to listen. I am here to remind you that you are a living breathing beauty. We both are.
It is a creative place where you can be free to be curious and explore ideas. It’s simply making and in the process of making you learn to listen to the voice inside you. Creating is my meditation.
Creatively Hue Is
you conquering the inner critic
you working on the idea
you allowing your curiosity to play
Creatively you is you, the kid who made art because you wanted to. You don’t think of yourself as an expert. You don’t think of money. Maybe you think about how mom would love it but most importanty you just made it because you wanted too.
It’s you and you can only be you when you get rid of the noice.
Easy to paint. Simple way to remind yourself that in everyday there is a new day. I am grateful to all the artists that keep me growing. I took this amazing class from surface designer world traveler Cat Coq and seeing my work in mock-ups was a complete confidence creative boost.
I reviewed my art work since the beginning of the year and there’s lots of mindfulness. Good. I wanted to focus on freeing my mind and taking care of myself. I have a few more ideas left. February is almost gone! I am ready to start the writing for 100 Ways to Flower With Power. I’ve been writing ALOT. Time to put everything together.
