Oh yes brighter days are here! On the news last night there was a segment on a mosaic festival someplace in Los Angeles. There is something about each shape each color coming together with another color or colors. We are each one beautiful color but together we bloom.
That’s a thought for the color book. I should pull out my favorite paintings and tell their color story? I did plan this out. Sure I mixed color on my palette but I let my eyes and my heart do the painting.
Now it’s time to listen to a little Swagger and paint.
A good way to observe flowers is ceramics. Mexican Cermics and patterns all over the world are beautiful. You can work on drawing, color schemes, try out colors you don’t typically work with and practice precision. Of course my mind is why? Florals, birds and the geometric shapes are all about a spiritual connection with all living elements. You can get all Star Wars. You see a lot of blues, yellows and oranges. These patterns are a good way to express my” be you” thoughts. My ideas are the same but how to express them, doors have opened.
Cut a craft sponge into a half and inch piece, mix-up a warm yellow and begin stamping. Finish by covering unstamped areas with a Shell Pink Watercolor. That’s all there is to painting these flowers.
Take some random objects from around the house and stamp flowers. You could use erasers, lids, paper, straws…straws are an interesting way. Use your favorite colors. You’re the artist!
I’m waiting for pink and white Acrylic Paint to arrive in the mail. These colors will be great for the center of the flower and a little pollen. Not sure why the flower in the middle is a little squished. Just a little, but I’ll adjust the spacing in the digitizing. I suppose I was thinking together we can, together we will.
There’s nothing like a breeze, a bird’s song or the warmth of a sun. How can you not feel love. How can you not feel peace.
Have fun. See you tomorrow.
Wait, are you a subscriber? I have lots more flowers to paint this week. I have a few self love Valentine’s Day ideas for next week.
