Live your love story

Why?

You will come across naysayers and circumstances that want you to fail. Persist. Persevere. Yes, I wrote these words for me too.

One afternoon I was dreaming in the sun. I wote this story down. Was it it a pink pen and composition book? There have been many versions since then.

The art print is the first $12 I earned. It was a great letter but the typography was terrible, Yet someone on etsy purcahsed it. I have been writing ever since.

Tracing Butterflies +Watercolor

Ever watch Butterflies, how they flutter from flower to flower? Sometimes I watch them with the sun. I too should flutter more often. Flutter from idea to idea. Flutter from one negative thought to a peaceful one. Flutter from place to place. My mind often does.

This butterfly still needs antenna and a few spots on the body of the Butterfly. The right side was painted first. The tracing and tutorial called for black ink but I didn’t want the exact pattern and blue seemed like the way to go. My confidence was good. Then it got lost. The left side looks a lot thicker and a few of the lines are a bit of a mess.

What’s the real difference between the right and the left wing? In the right wing I was fluttering in the process. Good place to be.

FLUTTER IN THE pROCESS

Enough about the Butterfly. I will paint another layer and see how I can make this work. It already has because I did write this post. This week I have a few more flowers to paint. I want to do a culture inspired project.

Barn Owl Take 5?

Last night I gave my pastels a try.

I liked both for various reasons. The one I signed, now that’s the bird with attitude. I painted and was about to go down the road of try this and try that but I stopped just in time. I found the perfect words.

What a beautiful owl for a beautiful thought. Powerful wings? I am painting an Eagle!
