Hand Painting

Yes. How could I ever think I wouldn’t make 100 flowers? There are too many good ideas! I used the brush to mix pink and to paint the leaves. It’s not that I made the petals with my hand, fist. Maybe it’s the reminder to turn anger into a flower. A little, What captivates me is the idea that a simple idea can lead to something beautiful.

Ok I’m going to get to work on a book cover.

Husk like Petals

…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.

Collage Animals

various paints and origami paper

You know when you get an idea and you’re excitied. And right when you get around to it the light bulb’s out. I love Eric Carle’s collage work. I had fun painting the papers but I don’t think the book idea is going to happen.

These guys are cute …

but I started researching fish and… alll these thoughts floureshed. I have some cool pencils, markers and watercolor that could be used to paint coral reefs, fish and some polka dot paper that would make a great Pippi Longstocking horse. My ideas are about all the animals I love.

These animals are so fun to make. I will always remeber the fun I had at Lee School.
