Just making art helps me get over all the noise, tune it out and just enjoy the melody. Let today’s post be about the ideas and the art,the PROCESS. Creatively Hue is you just making art conquering the critic and self love. When I say self love I mean inner management. I listened to some powerful talks this weekend.
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.
A good way to observe flowers is ceramics. Mexican Cermics and patterns all over the world are beautiful. You can work on drawing, color schemes, try out colors you don’t typically work with and practice precision. Of course my mind is why? Florals, birds and the geometric shapes are all about a spiritual connection with all living elements. You can get all Star Wars. You see a lot of blues, yellows and oranges. These patterns are a good way to express my” be you” thoughts. My ideas are the same but how to express them, doors have opened.
Going for walks with the intention of observing color and shape has been a breath of fresh air. Last afternoon, the day was windy and warm, standing still I could almost here the wind whispering.I love you. Now there’s all these trees I want to paint. I am toward the end of 100 ways to flower with power. This week I will finish up the writing and begin the layout. This concept has been in my mind for at least a year. There’s more florals I want to paint. I want to lay out all of the work and take one big loving the process photo. Many times I want to hurry to the end result and then question the deviation. Right now I want to build on the process and become stronger.
Thank you for reading and for the lovely comments from time to time. I appreciate all of them.
