Fingerpainting is Awesome

Apply the color in dots. Spread with your finger. Pink ones. Yellow ones. Blue ones. Peach ones. Monotones. What a great idea. The very thought of art is my happy place. Definitely going to rescan this flower.


Sometimes it is such a releaf to let go and see what happens. Always! Maybe you accidently dip in the wrong color but now you know that with the right colors you have an awesome idea. Since 100 ways, I have ideas for stems and colors. These will make great little drops of happy. An artist, @ettavee mentioned this in a recent workshop. Any of course I was like yes! This is what my art means to me. Some people write the great song I can’t stop signing and don’t want to. I paint. I could do this forever. I am. I will!

May has come and gone. June is a good time to launch creative bloom. I’ll be working on a color project. There’s an idea related to my wise trees. I use trees to talk about my love of people. I could do the same with color? Ok now I’ll go try the seamless pattern tutorial again.


Filled up the palette and I’m ready to paint textures and patterns of the world! I tried mixing up a deep green and brown. I ordered them. I want to get more blues. These tubes have been collected over a few years. I was about to purchase another student grade palette for the metal tin but I want to use these colors.

I can’t wait to test out these colors. I like that I have Cotman and professional colors. I was going to spend more time practicing and I will. It’s time to get mixing. It’s time to paint. This year is all about making. There are no mistakes. Only make.

Maybe I’ll paint a Peruvian rug?
