Inner peace is always here

What a Sunday morning! I woke up early. I wrote for an hour or two…love when I lose track of time. Thoughts on my mind, feeling…not me. Not sure what it was or why it was there BUT as I wrote my whole body was peace. I hadn’t created much this week. Then I browsed my collage paper and cut out some petals. Let my eyes do the sorting and pasting. Later on I worked on collage. As I arranged a pink petal next to a peach one, my whole body was peace.

That’s it! I need to create. I literally need to create. I was stuck in the days where I had my list, my goals and daily projects. The inner peace is always with me. Outside forces don’t matter. A true artist creates always. There’s no time or right supplies you just do it. It’s like the song that was written in a restaurant on the back of a napkin. In a way it’s magic. Guess I needed to understand and now that I do I can move forward. Speaking of magic I wrote a few words on the color purple. Yes I wrote some good words for the book. That’ll be tomorrow’s post. Have I painted purple flowers?

It takes ALL of us

The lesson on how we get our food

The podcast on gratitude for the farmer to the clerk

I don’t want to ever be that kind of jerk

Sometimes I am

I fuss over nothing

Forget who I am and what I bring

It is great and sad that we need a month to love ourselves.

To celebrate with stuff off the shelves

Look around

You and me, we make the town.

Let’s celebrate everyone everyday by being kind.

We do every time we sing and unwind.

Ok if you’ve been reading and enjoying my poems, thank you! I do like these poems. I’m just rhyming and having fun. Honestly that is what this is.

PLAY

Finger painting. Paper rolls. Flat brush. Clouds. Scraps of paper. Scrappy sponge. What do all of these ideas have in common? PLAY. For the past few days I’ve been painting. I always paint, every single day. These past days I haven’t had a single bloom that I want to share, scan or add to the shop. I did do a little writing for the color book. The writing is good. I like the writing. With the painting, it felt like I had to paint. I no longer have the entire day to paint. My best ideas, my best artwork happens when I have time to play. I miss the days when the ideas keep coming and I don’t want to run out of paper. I suppose that I forgot to simply let go and paint. I’ve played for 5 minutes or 10 minutes.

Yes this post and all of these projects are examples, reasons to let go and play. Surrender. We don’t need to be perfect because we’re not. We don’t need to have answers. We just need to pick up the brush and paint. Ok this post was my hold up wait a minute breath moment. Now I’m going to go finger paint some flowers.

Feel The Breeze

three peach yellow blooms with the words feel the breeze dance with ease.

You’ve got to, especially in the intense moments. Right now I want to pause, take a deep breath and think of all the projects yet to come.

Lovely shades of blooms,

You make me feel like when I gaze up at the moon

Oh yes there are poems to write

Nonsense and doubt. let go of that fight

Feed your body

Feed your mind

The world is ours so now it’s time to paint!

There’s room for all of us.

It’s going to be a great book.

Ok time to go eat and work on the color book.

Pink Love You Blooms

Shades of pink and orange blooms

I bought palette knives to mix paint with. Palette knives make great paint brushes. I was thinking about the peach blooms in my neighborhood. Let these blooms encourage you to create your best work. Your best work is already there but you have to practice and paint. Nature with her color and breeze always reminds us to listen and trust ourselves.

LOVE YOU FLAT BRUSH BLOOMS

five pink flat brush blooms with love you because you have to love yourself and the universe loves you

Can I just paint like this forever. Is this me feeling the love that I have for others and really an appreciation and love for me? Yes but it’s also what I feel when I go for walks and see the colorful blooms and soft swaying of the trees.

I don’t know what it is about these days but I’ve been feeling an inner peace even more. I picked up the paint brush. I mixed up pinks and painted. It’s not perfect. It can be messy. Paint and paint I did. It’s painting like this that makes me say, you see, you’re a visionary artist and you were born for this.

Painting doesn’t make me happy or mad. Painting gives me this state of being, it’s peace. When I can share that it’s even better.

There’s Room for All of Us

Oh we are getting more members in the creatively hue community. I haven’t figured the right name for our tribe. I love the idea of a tribe because in a tribe there are totems. Everyone gathers together by the fire, telling stories of the greats. There’s spirituality and everyone is connected. Say, maybe I do have an idea! There is many more blooms to come.

I painted some beautiful love you-pink-flat brush blooms. You’ll see them in a few days. Anyway I started a new book. I’ve been working on the book but now there’s a deadline. Yes it’s a color book. Oh, There’s room for us all is a good title. Different is Beautiful, my other book, I use animals to show how everyone makes this world the beautiful wonder that it is. I’ll express the same concept in the color book but with color. We need everyone to make this world go round. It’s the world is a rainbow filled with many colors song. We only have to learn how to work with them, not them but us, how to work together. This book will be a holiday gift for every artist because not only will you learn how to mix color but you’ll welcome and trust who you are.

Thanks for subscribing and reading. I’ll let you know when you download the first pages of this book and the free Ebook. This book is going to be so good. The deadline is December 2021. There I said it. Let’s do this!

THOUGHTS ARE WONDERFUL

Wonderful Thoughts Poster

You can touch the moon

You can fly like Peter Pan

What ever you wish

what ever is your desire

there is always a way to make it happen

Maybe not the exact dream

oh thank goodness for

the unexpected.

Yes think like the kid who knows

WHITE COSMOS AND LOVE

Three white cosmos painted on a blue green watercolor wash for you

Cosmos have heart shaped petals, well almost. In Greek, Cosmos mean orderly, beautiful and ornamental. Our talents, our skills, our authenticity are all ornamental and beautiful. Painting like this gives me rest and ease. I have so much more to paint. I have so much more to say.

Thank you for reading. I spent a little time writing for the color book. I do believe I have an idea! More updates coming soon!

Oh happy day

7 pink and orange blooms with the words oh happy day to put a little song in your day

A few weeks ago I painted papers. This was a sheet of brown school paper. I tested several papers. The petals and stems were painted in watercolor. The idea is that we create our happiness. What makes me happy is the simple act of being in the moment enjoying the process. Painting calms me and brings me peace. My only thinking is the idea. I simply create and that’s a happy day.

What makes you smile and do a little dance?
