By surprise I read this book today. I was looking for a file and noticed an error. Glad that was just a draft page. Not only am I thinking of the road trip but wow do these lessons apply to what’s happening in our lives. This is a good book. I am proud of every illustration and hand drawn word. I spent days, months working on this book. I am so glad I wrote it! I have skills.

Hope you are having a good weekend. If you got a glimpse of the roller coaster drawing that’s ok. I decided to take it down and redraw it. I lost that file.

Interested in reading the book?

Work Of The Past

I’ve been looking at all of my work, doodles and all. I have skills. I want to contiune working. I move on from project to project that I forget the joy and talent that went into previous projects. Frankly I fear that I don’t appreacite enough. I love that the entire book was done with simple black ink and sketches. I wrote on copy paper. My sketches were, ARE good!

I wish I would have held the attitude I do now. I appreciate the trip so much more today. The same can be said about all the work I’ve done. I realize that we don’t enjoy because we have all these doubts, fears and negatives that paralize us from enjoying the moment. WOW. That is the reason why I wrote this book. Leave all the nonsense behind and enjoy the ride. Enjoy the view. Enjoy all the people living for today, living life in peace. Imagine is such a great song.

First book layout is done!

It’s been crazy, my eyes are tired but I think I’m done with the lettering.

I finished the layout earlier and somehow it didn’t save. I kept making all these mistakes. I needed to change the book size because the images didn’t look right. Back and forth and back and forth and now I’m done. Now it’s time to relax and refresh my eyes for the next phase of editing.

Good night universe.

Paint a pink tree with a Qtip

I have been thinking about the wise trees book and holding it in my hand. I painted and messed up, started again and repeated the process until I decided to just paint. That has allowed me to paint amazing trees.

Yes this page makes so much sense.

There you are walking along and all of a sudden there it is, a pink tree…

 

Notes:

  • mix-up color using tempera, acrylic and just mix the perfect pink
  • maybe use a little watercolor paint with water and mix that with the paint above so the paint isn’t as thick.
  • then test out the paint color
  • mix a little of the pink with the brown to create an awesome brown tone for the tree trunk (I did mix up an awesome pink.)
  • then use the Qtip and paint
  • just have fun and add the flowers

 

I am having so much fun and Earth day seems like a great time to release my book. Sounds Good,

Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible.
