Last Work of 2021

Stickers ( soon to be added to Redbubble

What’s with all these 2021 posts? I’m grateful. I had fun. Yet there’s much more I want to do. I miss the days of lockdown. I worked on art all day. Yes I missed certain classrooms but in the grand scheme of things I love being at home. I welcome and want more of that this year.

More artwork

Ideas to build on!

A big goal for the year was to diversify my income. I wanted to open up a shopify store. That didn’t happen. I wanted to learn how to promote my book, relearn marketing and branding. I am still working on this. I took courses on branding and graphic design.

Here’s to brighter, bolder art that speaks of greatness. I’m on my way. I need to put together the first teaser of my color book…

heigh-ho heigh-ho it’s off to work we go!

My Favorite Blooms of 2021

The number one bloom was putting together Creative Bloom. The flowers artwork began in the summer of 2020 and continued through 2021. I am still painting and creating flowers. I think I’ve found my place. I’ve been painting for years but these blooms started from a project in a book Learning by heart: Lessons to Free the Creative Spirit. This is a must read. In fact I should probably read it again.

In Creative Bloom there is a repetitive idea. Whatever you are dealing with, doubt, creative block…the answers will come in the making.

When you learn to just make art you learn to appreciate your work, see the gem in every piece. Much of what you create will be work but it’s all beautiful.

Let me think on these favorites and work on a top lessons for 2021. I want to look at the top posts. I’ll end with adding the last 2021 designs. Not sure if I’ve done this before but it’ll be a great compass for 2022.
