This bloom was inspired by a park in Spain. You walk along a path full of colorful pieces and all for our eyes. I wonder who and how they were placed in such a way on a bench and on the giant Iguana on the entry way of the building.
Yes it’s all I hope for with my work. I want to continue to create the kind of work that illuminates and encourages positivity.
If I can share that with you then it’s a win-win. If you’d like to purchase this beauty you can.
Did you enjoy this week’s color series? These posts are good writings for my color book. I’m rethinking my color palette. There’s room for all of us is a book about color and a love for us humans. It will be available in ebook form in December. Oh my, I forgot about the deadline! I’m going to work on the book this weekend.
Include a little poetry in the book? What a great idea!
What a Sunday morning! I woke up early. I wrote for an hour or two…love when I lose track of time. Thoughts on my mind, feeling…not me. Not sure what it was or why it was there BUT as I wrote my whole body was peace. I hadn’t created much this week. Then I browsed my collage paper and cut out some petals. Let my eyes do the sorting and pasting. Later on I worked on collage. As I arranged a pink petal next to a peach one, my whole body was peace.
That’s it! I need to create. I literally need to create. I was stuck in the days where I had my list, my goals and daily projects. The inner peace is always with me. Outside forces don’t matter. A true artist creates always. There’s no time or right supplies you just do it. It’s like the song that was written in a restaurant on the back of a napkin. In a way it’s magic. Guess I needed to understand and now that I do I can move forward. Speaking of magic I wrote a few words on the color purple. Yes I wrote some good words for the book. That’ll be tomorrow’s post. Have I painted purple flowers?
Finger painting. Paper rolls. Flat brush. Clouds. Scraps of paper. Scrappy sponge. What do all of these ideas have in common? PLAY. For the past few days I’ve been painting. I always paint, every single day. These past days I haven’t had a single bloom that I want to share, scan or add to the shop. I did do a little writing for the color book. The writing is good. I like the writing. With the painting, it felt like I had to paint. I no longer have the entire day to paint. My best ideas, my best artwork happens when I have time to play. I miss the days when the ideas keep coming and I don’t want to run out of paper. I suppose that I forgot to simply let go and paint. I’ve played for 5 minutes or 10 minutes.
Yes this post and all of these projects are examples, reasons to let go and play. Surrender. We don’t need to be perfect because we’re not. We don’t need to have answers. We just need to pick up the brush and paint. Ok this post was my hold up wait a minute breath moment. Now I’m going to go finger paint some flowers.
Last night I was exploring the color brown. Beautiful browns and I made them with pinks, purples and blues. Yellow Ochre had a little something to do with it. All the color mixing had me thinking about my marker sketches on brown blue-lined kindergarten paper. There are so many ways to draw a flower. There are so many types of flowers. What would the world be without either one? There is a reason why nature is so unique. We are unique. There’s room for all of us is a great book! Now I’m going to write it.
So anyway, these are my ideas, a mess. I’ve written ideas here. I’ve written ideas there. I’ve written everywhere. Someday soon, in about three months it’ll be a book. Three months? I got this.
I bought palette knives to mix paint with. Palette knives make great paint brushes. I was thinking about the peach blooms in my neighborhood. Let these blooms encourage you to create your best work. Your best work is already there but you have to practice and paint. Nature with her color and breeze always reminds us to listen and trust ourselves.
Oh we are getting more members in the creatively hue community. I haven’t figured the right name for our tribe. I love the idea of a tribe because in a tribe there are totems. Everyone gathers together by the fire, telling stories of the greats. There’s spirituality and everyone is connected. Say, maybe I do have an idea! There is many more blooms to come.
I painted some beautiful love you-pink-flat brush blooms. You’ll see them in a few days. Anyway I started a new book. I’ve been working on the book but now there’s a deadline. Yes it’s a color book. Oh, There’s room for us all is a good title. Different is Beautiful, my other book, I use animals to show how everyone makes this world the beautiful wonder that it is. I’ll express the same concept in the color book but with color. We need everyone to make this world go round. It’s the world is a rainbow filled with many colors song. We only have to learn how to work with them, not them but us, how to work together. This book will be a holiday gift for every artist because not only will you learn how to mix color but you’ll welcome and trust who you are.
Thanks for subscribing and reading. I’ll let you know when you download the first pages of this book and the free Ebook. This book is going to be so good. The deadline is December 2021. There I said it. Let’s do this!
