Flowers With Lip Gloss?

Oh yeah. This is one of those times where you get curious. Then curiosity leads you to an idea that was lingering but you didn’t know how to express it. Hot pink and an emerald green would have been beautiful. Oh I should create a pattern. Done. Right now there’s another pattern I need to digitize.

Tomorrow I will be working on the writing for 100 Ways to Flower With Power.

Christmas Tree Painting

It’s interesting to see how each culture decorates trees. Wanting others to see the stars illuminating a tree is my favorite. Wanting bright color instead of boring green is a good one too. One decorates with popcorn and berry garlands. The other with pretzel oranments.

Christmas trees are easy to create. You can create one with a marker, dried up stamp…however you choose!

There’s no rules or perfection.

Mixing Color

Speaking of using color. There I was mixing inks and watercolor just as I have before. Only this time I’m discovering all these beautiful tones! I’m rethinking this piece again.

Yes I need some pulse and precision practice. That’s what practice is for.

Notes: brighter orange, a darker blue, bigger petals on the flowers. Keep with the idea of being a post card. More of a peach pink instead of the purple. write lindo y querido with thicker strokes.

You’re thinking too much. Paint.

I love my work and I’m having fun with these ideas. I found amazing pinks on Peruvian blankets. I really needed color harmony in my life.

Plastic Wrap + Rock Texture?

I intended to paint a place somewhere in Australia. Not sure where this is, but what a beautiful photo. This voice insisted on realism. I decided why not check off the texture list I started. Plastic wrap it is.

All I needed was shades of blue and black. Then I cut the plastic wrap to fix each section accept the heart. Trying a new technique with no expectations but a little visual interest.

Magic happens during the drying process. I did add a few more layers. I love my iteration. The color and texture are amazing! And the thought…change is good, change is beautiful. Change takes time and evolution is always changing, growing and gift for us all.

Now this is the art that I want to create. These are the ideas that make me dance and sing!
