Pink and Yellow Friendship Blooms

joy and friendship watercolor blooms to remind you that nature is on your side

The other day I went for a walk. I was deep in thought. I often am. I heard birds singing. Then a pink bloom or a peach bloom gets me. Suddenly I stop and each breath is love. It’s almost like that friend who calls you up. Sometimes you call them. You ramble about the days events just to get them of your chest. You ramble on about your fears and doubt. You dream. You dream the impossible. You let go. No judgement. No fear.

The great part is that there’s always nature. She’ll always give you a breeze or if not a warm hug. Or a rain dance … I could go on.

Hope you enjoyed these blooms. If you want to purchase the artwork go to the shop page. Are you a subscriber? It’s almost my birthday. I ‘ll probably give away a few books.

Faith With You

By far one of my most favorite flowers. I posted this flower via story post but I had to share it one more time. These flowers are so easy to make. You never know what will happen. I posted about it earlier this week. These blooms are a good way to practice going with the flow. It’s all in the process.

I am adding this to my shop. What’s your favorite color? I could use that color for the next bloom.

Thank you so much for reading. If you haven’t subscribed please do so. That way you get all of my posts in your mailbox. I have new work and new books coming. Oh and I am working on a course.

Heart Petal Flowers and Valuing You

Thursday’s post arrived late. I goofed on the time. Now on to today’s post.

I had this heart petal flower in a repaint pile. I painted this in blue for faith in you but that’s in the repaint pile.

This week the podcasts, blog posts and a few instagram feeds are all on the subject of knowing your worth. There’s imposter syndrome. What do I charge? Am I good enough? How can I publish a best selling book? The book one, the Kute Blackson episode surprised me. I almost forgot about it. Just now I can hear Kute’s voice. Just write the book. You don’t need permission. I was deep in my work and it hit me. Your work is good. You can do this. You have skills. Even if you are a beginner with a million questions, love your work. All that matters is that you pick up the paint brush and PAINT.

Today I scanned everything. I fixed the orange flower. The T-shirt project is looking good. My point in sharing my work and this blog is that we all have a book in us. The question is are you going to write it? Words again from Kute Blackson. What a great episode. I feel silly at times posting advice when I’m learning as I go. Once again I appreciate your kind feedback.
