Walk With You Always Neutral Blooms

Nature is a creative boost

It is hard to think of you always. The voice in my head always has something to say. I do think of you always. You are a part of me. But these thoughts try to keep us apart. Oh but with your breeze you hug me. I did see the Hopi Crape with all it’s color and strength. I shall paint one. I must.

Painting is my reminder that I am here. I am here and with you always.

I received feedback from one of you and I thank you. Hope you are a subscriber. I started learning poetry. More on that in coming posts. There’s much more happening at creativelyhue. I recently painted a tree. I haven’t painted trees since Wise Tress. The Hopi Crapes I keep seeing are calling my name. I love painting trees and beautiful flowers. Yes I did come home after a walk and paint a tree. It felt good.

I ‘d love to see what you are working on. Find me on instagram @creatively.hue and tag me.

Have a good week.

Love Lives Here Bouquet

learn to observe your art as you keep practicing

Remember the first attempt?

As I have been writing, alot these days, I am drawing and painting flowers for the practice. Lately I have been showing up with doubt and negativity. Yes I planned to paint a Ranunculus,still do. I love the idea of this, layering with acrylic and filling in with watercolor. The hearts, these were inspired by actual leaves.

Which brings me to my practice!

Make art. make a mistake? keep going. Observe. repeat.

Somewhere in the mistake and keep going I stop. It’s the mistake that prevents me from the going, the making. Everyone that succeeded did so because they had losts of practice. In practice you build flow. In practice you make changes because you learn. I made slight changes. What a diference. I went from Ranunculus love to love lives here.

I love the shape, the layers of these blooms. It’s like you see one flower but there’s all these layers, all the mystery and magic of the flower. Or should I say a person. Love lives here feels right. You choose to let go of the doubt and hold loves hand. Next time you want to throw out your work, save it. In a few days, a weelk, look at it with a fresh pair of eyes and keep making art.

Oh I should paint these with a turqoise or aqua background! You see I can keep going.

paint tulips with watercolor and acry

Last night I went to sleep with a question. What’s my story? Today’s Show Your Work reading and a comment on my art artwork post @creativelyhue askes me the same question.

I am rewriting my about page. So far so good. My earliest memory is fingerpainting. I liked the feel of paint on my hands. I loved the educational Crayola Watercolor sets. Most of all I liked that I had a canvas. My space. My place. I can do whatever I want with it. Why then do I feel the need to copy. Wait a minute I don’t copy but it is as I wrote yesterday. I feel imspired and I try and paint that way.

What I love most about art is that anything can be art. There is room for everyone. I have seen lines, scribbles, doodles, splatters, painting with spoons and straws.

All of it makes me feel so inspired. It is amazing what the mind dreams up.

Have a favorite artist? I should make a list and post it this weekend. I do have a list on pinterest.

Trust The Practice

Paint flowers shapes like circles and lines.

Not used to painting with purple. I do add purple to blue. Oh and I mix pink and white gouache with purple. Probably should have used white gouache for lighter tones. And still I like these purple blooms. Lavender? Lilac? Periwinkle? I’m looking up color as I write this. Today was really about painting. Nothing for the shop or a specific skill. I wanted to paint my creative blooms. I need the practice.

I redid the Creative Blooms. The bright and warm feeling makes my blooms brighter.

Give your creativity a boost with hundreds of ways to paint flowers

There are so many more flowers I need to paint. All I have is trust. Trust the process. Go with the idea. Don’t stop. Keep going. Momentum will find you.

Yes You Can Pink And Orange Blooms

I forgot the exact worrds I utterd. I painted the petals seeing these blooms come together. What a surprise. Yes you can seems like a good summary. Abstract flowers. Yes you can. Petals with a flat brush. Yes you can. Build a community. Yes you can. Keep working. Keep creating. Keep making art. You can paint. You have skills. Mix beautiful color. Yes you can!

Red Tempera Paint Sketching

Easy sketchbook painting with copy paper and temepra paint for ideas

A few days ago I painted, or should I say tried to paint a galaxy. The galaxy part was good but the lettering, I need practice. Lately I have been doing this red paint sketching. I have a big bottle that needs more using, especially now that I know how to mix up beautiful pinks. So I had an ok painting day. I painted for at least a few hours. Here I painted for like 15 minutes, no ideas, just some paint and a willingness to play. With the galaxy I painted with the notion that it had to be a certain way instead of seeing what happens. Surrender to the idea?
