Life is a highway

like the song and this project

At the time the advice was step out of your comfort and try something new. I love color and my drawing wasn’t good. What do I do? Draw and write every single word and illustrtion with a black Sharpie ink pen. Summer is almost here. You may find some good road trip advice here.

Get this fun read here. Different Is Beutiful is here in paperback!

I enjoyed looking through my old work.

Out with the old

Wow this must have been a new toy post. My palette looks messier. The messier the better. There’s hardly any paint left. I love the greens and blues so much that I will be ordering tubes, The colors are so vibrant. It must be the honey. I may keep this palette but break it apart and make it work.

I love the new one but it’s thin and there’s not enough mixing roon.

I have been feeling sick these past few days. I haven’t painted but one look makes me smile. I am building a list. Publishing a few more books. Lots more to come.

Sea Wave Texture

I had a plan but it didn’t work out. As soon as the spork hit the page, very little paint glided across the page.

So I tried straight lines, circular motions and then… I had to use a flat brush. I spread the paint. With the paint wet, I glided the spork in an ocean wave manner.

I took things a step further with trying to paint a green boat. The boat turned into a mug. The bear turned into a kangaroo. I wanted to test painting with one medium size flat brush. Not such a good idea. I don’t have a texture for the book. I’ll paint something tomorrow.
