Pink Collage Blooms in Progress

Collage is another fun way to make art. You paint textures on paper. You let your eyes create color balance. You don’t know what it’s going to look like until it’s done. You have to trust the process. Sometimes we want to control every single detail. It’s more like all the time. That’s why I stopped sketching with pencil because if I do I start thinking perfection. This design is one of my favorites. I just made it. It was all play.

every butterfly needs a cocoon collage

Yes that is why I started Creatively Hue. Creatively Hue is my cacoon where I can bloom. When you’re ready you just come forth open up your wings like the hungray caterpillar and flutter. Every day there are more of you and I can’t thank you enough. If you aren’t a subscriber then please subscribe. There’s poetry. Fun blooms,always. Books and so much more. Your best work is waiting!

Mosaic Fish

The park in Barcelona is a beautiful wonder. There’s something about painting each shape. You have to have patience. How it dries and the effect it leaves is all up to the water.

As for the color, it’s all complementary. Mixing a drop of green with a magenta makes lovely shades of pink. Having a size two brush helps.

I didn’t have a plan. All I wanted was happy tones and let the shapes find themselves. Fish are another world of curiosity. No two fish are alike, much like us.

Painting with white space helps me slow down. Not bad for a student grade pan set. I can paint all day like this! I will. Paint patterns and textures of the world while I write for 100 ways to flower with power? Sounds marvelous. I still want to paint flowers. I will.

What do you like to paint? Please share it on instagram or email me. These days I feel like a kid in a candy store. I find such peace in painting, that is until perfection shows up. I find myself asking everyone around me if they like to paint. I hope everyone has something that makes them feel the way I do when I paint.
