yellow you warm me like the sun

Yellow Yellow

you make me feel mellow

Friendship smiiles

blooms you make me want a while

most of all you make me dream, imagine, and

curious like the kid who’s free

like the kid who knows how to just be

You light me, warm me like the sun

I want to paint and have fun

Did you enjoy this week’s color series? These posts are good writings for my color book. I’m rethinking my color palette. There’s room for all of us is a book about color and a love for us humans. It will be available in ebook form in December. Oh my, I forgot about the deadline! I’m going to work on the book this weekend.

Include a little poetry in the book? What a great idea!

magic lives in all of us

Say! I do paint purple flowers. Purple is the color of creativity and spiritual growth. Purple is magical and royalty. Purple was only for a few in the times of kings and queens. Only for a few? Magic and creativity lives in all of us. Power doesn’t come in a crown. Power comes from your inner being. Power comes from, yes I’m getting all Sar Wars, power comes from the force that binds us all. I should paint more purple flowers, lots more flowers!

Inner peace is always here

What a Sunday morning! I woke up early. I wrote for an hour or two…love when I lose track of time. Thoughts on my mind, feeling…not me. Not sure what it was or why it was there BUT as I wrote my whole body was peace. I hadn’t created much this week. Then I browsed my collage paper and cut out some petals. Let my eyes do the sorting and pasting. Later on I worked on collage. As I arranged a pink petal next to a peach one, my whole body was peace.

That’s it! I need to create. I literally need to create. I was stuck in the days where I had my list, my goals and daily projects. The inner peace is always with me. Outside forces don’t matter. A true artist creates always. There’s no time or right supplies you just do it. It’s like the song that was written in a restaurant on the back of a napkin. In a way it’s magic. Guess I needed to understand and now that I do I can move forward. Speaking of magic I wrote a few words on the color purple. Yes I wrote some good words for the book. That’ll be tomorrow’s post. Have I painted purple flowers?

It takes ALL of us

The lesson on how we get our food

The podcast on gratitude for the farmer to the clerk

I don’t want to ever be that kind of jerk

Sometimes I am

I fuss over nothing

Forget who I am and what I bring

It is great and sad that we need a month to love ourselves.

To celebrate with stuff off the shelves

Look around

You and me, we make the town.

Let’s celebrate everyone everyday by being kind.

We do every time we sing and unwind.

Ok if you’ve been reading and enjoying my poems, thank you! I do like these poems. I’m just rhyming and having fun. Honestly that is what this is.

THOUGHTS ARE WONDERFUL

Wonderful Thoughts Poster

You can touch the moon

You can fly like Peter Pan

What ever you wish

what ever is your desire

there is always a way to make it happen

Maybe not the exact dream

oh thank goodness for

the unexpected.

Yes think like the kid who knows

WHITE COSMOS AND LOVE

Three white cosmos painted on a blue green watercolor wash for you

Cosmos have heart shaped petals, well almost. In Greek, Cosmos mean orderly, beautiful and ornamental. Our talents, our skills, our authenticity are all ornamental and beautiful. Painting like this gives me rest and ease. I have so much more to paint. I have so much more to say.

Thank you for reading. I spent a little time writing for the color book. I do believe I have an idea! More updates coming soon!

Oh happy day

7 pink and orange blooms with the words oh happy day to put a little song in your day

A few weeks ago I painted papers. This was a sheet of brown school paper. I tested several papers. The petals and stems were painted in watercolor. The idea is that we create our happiness. What makes me happy is the simple act of being in the moment enjoying the process. Painting calms me and brings me peace. My only thinking is the idea. I simply create and that’s a happy day.

What makes you smile and do a little dance?

Different Blooms Same Love

Four blooms to express different blooms but same love

I like my sketch better and here’s why. The sketch was all me. I picked up a green marker and drew. With the watercolor version I was focused on getting my painting to look like my sketch. I could feel the freedom in my sketch. In the watercolor version I love the color scheme but the leaves not so much.

Different but Same Love

Ok time to paint, listen to another chapter of Swagger and see what my followers are up to. If you’re working on a project tell me about it. Tag me on instagram @creatively.hue or pinterest. Email me. We all have art to share.

Pink Blooms and You

Six pink acrylic blooms to encourage joy, peace and love

Authenticity, that’s it. Authenticity is all you need to paint your best blooms. When I painted these flowers I mixed tones of pink and peach. I held the brush without precision. At some point I put down the brush and used my fingers. Works every time.

I painted these blooms a few months ago and didn’t share them. Too pink, too, bright, yes I doubted my own work. Why would I ever want to do that? Are you kidding me! This color palette is amazing! Here’s to more painting. We got this.
