Strolling along in thought, as I often am, and I see a Bird of Paradise.
Have you read this book? This is books has a special place in my heart. All of my projects do but this book, this book is filled with my swagger. When I was a child I would think about everything in nature. Why a fish is a fish. How extraordinary that their water is what breath is to me. What’s it like to swim in the dark depths of the ocean? Do dogs talk like we humans do. Everything is exactly as it’s meant to me. In this book I explored the ocean, insects and my favorite horses. From the horse who reminds us to be wildly free to the small bees who make a world of difference in spite of their size every single animal, flower and the universe all of it is a reminder that we each have a color, a talent or a skill and where would we be without that love.
A dark side? Yes there are dark forces who tell us or treat us other wise but let’s focus on us. This year I became a Star Wars fan. I am still surprised by that. Everything is connected by a force and energy that binds us all. Every time I go for walk and breath in the breeze and the beautiful peach pink blooms I feel it. Wait a minute, Star Wars has been me all along.

One afternoon I was dreaming in the sun. I wote this story down. Was it it a pink pen and composition book? There have been many versions since then.
The art print is the first $12 I earned. It was a great letter but the typography was terrible, Yet someone on etsy purcahsed it. I have been writing ever since.

Much better painting today! I was thinking about agua frescas and the notion of parties in certain cultures. Everybody’s invited because everybody’s family. What a wonderful idea for life, loving yourself and loving others.
Still need a few details. The beautiful blue and yellow will look even more beautiful digitally scanned.
That’s a week. There’s not much of finished paintings but the progress was good. Glorious wonderful progress!
Next week I want to paint a drum, a few flowers, lettering and…
The park in Barcelona is a beautiful wonder. There’s something about painting each shape. You have to have patience. How it dries and the effect it leaves is all up to the water.
As for the color, it’s all complementary. Mixing a drop of green with a magenta makes lovely shades of pink. Having a size two brush helps.
I didn’t have a plan. All I wanted was happy tones and let the shapes find themselves. Fish are another world of curiosity. No two fish are alike, much like us.
Painting with white space helps me slow down. Not bad for a student grade pan set. I can paint all day like this! I will. Paint patterns and textures of the world while I write for 100 ways to flower with power? Sounds marvelous. I still want to paint flowers. I will.
What do you like to paint? Please share it on instagram or email me. These days I feel like a kid in a candy store. I find such peace in painting, that is until perfection shows up. I find myself asking everyone around me if they like to paint. I hope everyone has something that makes them feel the way I do when I paint.
I just needed a sweet reminder.
