Feel the breeze dance with ease

three peach yellow blooms with the words feel the breeze dance with ease.

Nature is such a confidence booster. Nature is such a creative booster. It was a hot summer day. I think I’ll go for a quick summer evening stroll. Let these blooms remind us to feel the breeze and dance with ease. We’re not worried about what they say because we’re too busy doing with we do.

I picked out my flat brush, mixed a few friendship tones and and it was exactly how I felt. I want and need more of this kind of painting. Ok now it’s time to go for a stroll.

Thanks for reading. See you tomorrow.

Palms Make Cool Flowers

Paint flower petals with my palm? Tracing petals and then painting? Which would you choose? Pianting petals with my palm is much better, for two reasons. When you put you in your work, you make a difference. There’s uncertainty of how the paint will stamp. There’s the gratification of ” I made this.”

Last night’s words of Seth Godin showed up in today’s painting session. I hope they always do. His words and James’ words,” What made you weird as a kid, makes you great today.”

As I painted my plams, with each stroke I was further in a mess. The mess where a teacher says, Stop that your’re making a mess. Yet if I didn’t make a mess, I wouldn’t have made beautiful art.
