Roses-Finger Painting

Today is the last bloganuary post. The question is, where is the best place to view the sunset. I say…anywhere. The beauty of watching the sunset is you can. You experience the sunset with your eyes and feel it. Right now, for example, I am overlooking mountains full of snow. The skies are blue, the sun is shining and I’m dancing with the breeze. I feel it in my heart. My spirit feels it. “Write poetry and go on with your goals.”

Here we go!

  • Revamp my shop. My shop needs exciting new work
  • Creative Exploration with paper collage (amazing course)
  • New flower logo. I switched the blue flower with a temporary pink flower but I want a pink rose
  • Building my blog (this includes opening comments and new tutorial content)

I forgot to mention books. I have two book projects: wildflower thoughts for a lovely life and my roses book. The pink roses I just painted are a great example of what I need to work on for the roses and these plans. The form is there. I just need to work on the details. Plus I love the texture I made while painting the blue background.

Roses-In Red

My three colors are red, white, and green. I added a little turquoise for the leaves. I had nowhere to go and nothing to do. Made pink my hero and it was beautiful! I guess taking the pressure off of painting something grand helps.

I began painting and this voice was like,” take it easy.” You were all upset this morning. Loosen up those strokes. Paint. Paint I did! Painting helps me in so many ways. Wait, till you see the flowers I painted for the shop.

Roses-What do I want to say

All you have to do is believe in your work. That is a very powerful sentence. And yes, I believe in my butterfly.

The hero of my palette is pink. I worked with three colors: turquoise, magenta, and white. I did use a little indian yellow to have orange for my blue. My colors are bright and joyful. The Roses are looking good too. I like referencing my favorite paintings and nature of course. My three colors were on my mind. I thought about the great day I had with my students. I painted.

Today’s bloganuary question is about procrastination. Procrastination scares me. I like to plan. I think too much. I like James Victore’s advice. Learn it. Forget it. Create. I have the skills. I believe in my work.

Roses-show love

Today’s bloganuary question is how do you show love? I think this is my favorite question! I show love with words and paint. Painting helps me relax. Painting helps me express how nature makes me feel. I want to paint all day! My annual physical included a wellness checkup. Am I happy? Do I have hobbies? I am happy! That’s when I realized my nature walks and painting projects give me mindfulness and help me be a better person. Because of my art, I’m patient, optimistic, kind, and loving. I know what you’re thinking, hold on. Art also helps me reflect on the times I’m impatient and egotistical. I’m a loving spirit who happens to be living a human experience. Painting is my freedom of expression. Right now my roses project is helping me learn how to use color and texture to express how nature makes me feel.

So today I’m sharing the above sketch. The rose is below the words there’s room. I sketched this lovely message in the last five minutes of my lunch break. The petals resemble a big smile. Sure I took out my crayons and colored a few sketches. I drew two flower vase arrangements but I didn’t feel like sharing them. Tomorrow I’ll paint blue roses.

Thank you for reading and subscribing because I love that I can share what I do with you.

Siempre,
