Protect your Creative Zone

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.

Woven Hearts

This weekend I painted patterns and woven hearts. Did I make a paper ornament in grade school? Probably. I set out to paint a few and the first one was all wrong. I keep saying this. The second, what a color! Not the bright fun cherry red I wanted… but yeah. I have drawn many hearts for Valentine’s Day. Why did these go wrong? I paint best when all is quiet. I focus. I play. Besides there’s all kinds of woven hearts. I got back into make mode. All of a sudden the first try is looking good. Completely understand why other artists stay up late or wake up early and head to thier creative space.
