Roses-Pink Bouquet

I pinned all of these floral arrangements. I’ve started painting them. Today I had to paint pink roses.

Except for the outline of the roses and the leaves, I love these blooms. I was supposed to finish the paper collage piece I’m working on. My shop needs new work. That’s ok! I’m confident that all this practice will lead to fabulous art prints, books…

Bloganuary is almost over. One more day left in January! That means I’ll be going back to posting three days a week. I’ll be working on the roses project, a little poetry, my new course, and anything else I’ll think of. I’m always thinking of something. I just realized my word of the year is de colores. My phrase of the year is de colores. I want to paint more viva magenta.

Roses-Inspirational Quote

I had a fantabulous time painting today. It’s going to be better. As I’m being a fan of other people’s blogs, I came across this quote.

Speak your heart. If they don’t understand, the message was never meant for them anyway.

I didn’t get who wrote it but I believe in my work!

Roses-failed pieces need love

I found this incredible quote. It’s part of my momentum right now.

What every artist must learn is that even the failed pieces are essential.

Rob Bell

I mixed up blues and pinks. Did this yesterday. The strokes went from hard to soft. The petal shapes were looking good. My pinks were bright but when I layered over the warm blue…I almost gave up. Instead I took a break and painted these. Good idea!

During the creative process, there will be ugly or doubtful work. The beauty of acrylic is you can layer. You can try to make it work. Many times it will. I think I made these magenta roses work. Other times it’s just good practice. Now I know I need a detailed acrylic brush. Wait, I think I can use all these lessons I’ve learned to paint full-page roses arrangements. Sounds like an expressive abstract roses book of friendship for the spirit. I like it!

Siempre,
