paint tulips with watercolor and acry

Last night I went to sleep with a question. What’s my story? Today’s Show Your Work reading and a comment on my art artwork post @creativelyhue askes me the same question.

I am rewriting my about page. So far so good. My earliest memory is fingerpainting. I liked the feel of paint on my hands. I loved the educational Crayola Watercolor sets. Most of all I liked that I had a canvas. My space. My place. I can do whatever I want with it. Why then do I feel the need to copy. Wait a minute I don’t copy but it is as I wrote yesterday. I feel imspired and I try and paint that way.

What I love most about art is that anything can be art. There is room for everyone. I have seen lines, scribbles, doodles, splatters, painting with spoons and straws.

All of it makes me feel so inspired. It is amazing what the mind dreams up.

Have a favorite artist? I should make a list and post it this weekend. I do have a list on pinterest.

paint easy flowers with spirals lines
  • colors
  • color chart
  • noticing a few heart shapes in a reference photo
  • spirals

…just a few reasons why I want to paint these. Last night I dreamed of painting these again with thinner lines. Weird I know. I am divided. No I need to paint these again? I will but with the idea that these blooms aren’t wrong. I prefer to just make, just paint and see what happens.

The best learning you will ever do is by creating, Creating is how you build trust. Trust is everything.
