I was painting blooms and thinking spring. Today is cold and winter is almost near. I’ll sit in thought and dream of spring as I glue, paint or write.
Oh but there are many of full mooms in the winter. There are breezy cold days just right for blankets and hot cocoa. The sun shines so your nose won’t freeze. Oh my every season has its beauty! I have so many blooms to paint and a book to finish!
This weekend I’ll put together the ebook layout, the first rough draft. I may share it sooner than you think.
That’s it. That’s why I paint. I want to run like the wind. I want to frolic, feel the warmth of the sun, have time to fall in love with the flowers, the breeze, birds…and keep wandering right into the moonlight.
Love making these flowers. So easy to make and different beautiful petals every time. I’m posting this right now because I need a reminder to keep creating keep making art. I am my best tool. Here’s to creating more. Here’s to just making art and being you.
This week was weird. I find myself wanting to fully connect with my authentic me. I started a great audio book, Swagger. There’s been a few words of brutal honesty. I had to calm myself with Gospel Morning’s Love podcast. Last night’s evening stroll was a game changer. Always is. All the podcasts have been about love. Everything leads back to love. Love my authentic me, my authentic child soul who wants to draw all day long and share it.
This week I painted a few butterflies, paper roll flowers, an Allium and I still want to paint another, and abstract brush stroke flowers.
Surface Design seems like a good idea! These flowers were created with a series of motions made with a flat brush. Not even sure how I mixed this beautiful color. A little red? Oh right it was just painting and that led to PLAY
The just painting and PLAY is part of the 100 ways to flower with power book. It’s all together only I need to physically do it. I have more writing and I’ll start next week.
Sometimes you need to feel vulnerable, scared and hopeless so you can then realize even more. The Lotus flower is all put together. It was a mess. The mess came when I started thinking perfection. One of my followers on Instagram thought it was good as is. It was but I felt like it was too much trying to be instead of just being.
This flower is a reminder that I am working everday toward my creative business. I need to let the sun and air in so I can bloom. I didn’ t know that a Lotus flower only grows in the mud.
Happy Valentine’s Day! I always loved decorating a shoe box as my mailbox. Then I’d look at all my cards as soon as I got home from school. Fun times. I took the heart pattern idea from the book cover and painted cards.
Painting hearts is relaxing. Painting hearts is an easy way to create a hand painted card. Oh by the way, my ebook is available for free until February 18th. The paperback should be available today if not by Saturday. The paperback is available for a specal price of 7.99. Here’s a link to my author page on Amazon.
Thank yu so much for reading. The tribe keeps on growing and it means the world to me that I can share my art with you. Have a good day!
