Here’s round 2 of my sporadic lettering ideas. Is this hand lettering in the typical sense. I hope not. I’ve been creating to see where the idea takes me. Sometimes you see artists-kids- sharing their work with excitement because of the idea. There’s no perfection. I observe this with artists from time to time. I know there’s lots of practice to get to the free to fail creative state. Skill is important but what everything really comes down to is mindselt.
Think of some quotes. Halloween ones. Write. Create. No Helvetica unless there’s good reason too. I am going to paint some fun halloween crafts. Purple spider. Or Green.
Here’s the lemon. The candle lid floral stamp is hardly visible, Tracing paper may not be the best option for stamping. I do like this simple lemon and the idea is even better. I should have taken more care in gluing the lemon. Somehow the unintended bubbles reinformace my thought. Lemons like life’s problems can be too bitter to eat alone. What makes a world of difference is knowing that just the right amount of lemon makes good chicken or bars. The choice is always ours. I write and create the advice I need.
I can’t believe it’s Friday again. I have been painitng lots of new work. Much of it is me saying I’m gong to paint. I don’t know what I’ll paint. Or paint corn but end up painting lemons and leaves. Oh I painted curcles and a cactus. Collage lettering. Life is truly better when I paint what I want. I am better.
Have a good weekend. I’ll probably do a weekend post.
Making collage fruit is fun. I had a few leftover scraps and I began cutting leaves. Then this lemon idea popped in my head. I had the words. Only problem is this lemon is an orange. Now I am going to paint yellow and green paper.
Oranges are nature’s gift to keep us healthy and beautiful. Yes we nust eat and do what is good for us.
Yesterday I posted about Dada art and letting the idea take oer. Today my reading continues with the same topic. Let it be means you let go of everything else. Let go of what you know and go. My intention was improving my drawing and hand lettering. A floral arrangement on the wall gave me an idea. As I drew the idea kept growing. I followed. Don’t manipulate the tools. Let the tools work through you.
Your work is a gift and when you recognize this magic happens. Words from another artist.
