Roses-Spirit of Love Bouquet

…but in fact, today it is the amateur–the enthusiast who pursues her work in the spirit of love..

Yes, that’s me! The words of Show Your Work go on to say that amateurs aren’t afraid to make mistakes and don’t think about looking ridiculous because they are in love with their work. I’m obsessed. I’m an artist! Art is what I do! I’ve never painted roses before. I paint expressive and abstract wildflowers.

Yet here I am painting roses and building content for the roses book. The roses book will be a friendship book for the spirit, the soul–my spirit, and my soul. What if I share my heart and people shatter it. Can they really? No.

I want to paint the way roses make me feel when I’m out for my walk. I see white roses and that purity and innocence captivate me. I imagine and wonder. It’s beautiful. When I create I don’t care about what others think. It’s not even on my radar. As I painted Spirit of Love I made mistakes. I kept painting. And I’ll keep painting.

Let today’s post be about painting with the spirit of love. Far too often, we define ourselves by outside forces instead of relying on intrinsic value. The passion, the voice is here, always has been.

Expressive Flowers

Hello Blooming Beauties!

I remember when I painted these flowers in five minutes with a Crayola washable watercolor set. Or was it Prang? All the same love! I’m about to pop some popcorn and watch a movie. I wanted to hop on here to ask a few questions and share some creatively hue news!

What do you like about this blog? What would you like to see more of? What post times and days work for you? As of now, I post Wednesday and Sunday. These days are reserved for sharing my projects. Right now I’m working on my roses project. I want to add a third day where I post a tutorial or artist tips. Maybe I should post one weekly project update and one tutorial or artist tips post? What do you think? My goal is to have more fun on this blog. I want to write as the spiritual and passionate artist I am! More on that tomorrow!

As a reminder, I do post idea-pin videos on Pinterest. Pinterest is my go-to place where I collect my inspiration and post all the flowers I find on my nature walks. I share behind-the-scenes on Instagram. I just received a payment for the books I sold on Amazon. Thank you! You can also purchase art prints.

Oh and thank you for all of the lovely comments.
