I could buy the same shade, brush, brand, hold my brush at the exact angle but my work isn’t going to look like someone else’s. I prefer it not to.”
This post reminds me that I want to paint a new stem. Taller and another shade of green? Yes.
…inspired by one of the beauties in my neighborhood. Not to sure about the brown tones but the petals remind me of how I felt when I saw the flower, patterns in all. To think I simply painted. I love when that happens. All the more reason to keep creating.
Nect time work with peach and pink tones.
Next week I’ll figure it out. Or tomorrow. One more week to wrap up the flower project.
Gave these flowers a makeover.
Painting over acrylic with watercolor is great. The next time you buy a paint brush save the plastic bristles protector. You could use a straw too.
I have some cool bookcover projects coming this week and a new notebook journal. If you like this flower then you will love all of the other flowers I am putting in the book. I’ll be taking a few photos of all of my work to celebrate this project.
I saw@margarts who’s on like day 35 of her 100 day stamping challenge. Any ordinary thing can become even more beautiful. 100 ways to flower with power is all about this idea! There are so many flowers. All of them will be scanned and ready for illustrations. Words have been written. Words still need to be written. Book needs to be ready for spring. Sure there’s Lavendar and a few others yet to be painted. The eraser stamp florals? Yes lets.
Have a good week. If you enjoy these posts then perhaps an art print?
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.
The other day I painted for hours but there wasn’t much to show for it. Still I kept on painting. Glad I did.
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.
Sometimes you need to feel vulnerable, scared and hopeless so you can then realize even more. The Lotus flower is all put together. It was a mess. The mess came when I started thinking perfection. One of my followers on Instagram thought it was good as is. It was but I felt like it was too much trying to be instead of just being.
This flower is a reminder that I am working everday toward my creative business. I need to let the sun and air in so I can bloom. I didn’ t know that a Lotus flower only grows in the mud.
