Painting Pottery Florals

A good way to observe flowers is ceramics. Mexican Cermics and patterns all over the world are beautiful. You can work on drawing, color schemes, try out colors you don’t typically work with and practice precision. Of course my mind is why? Florals, birds and the geometric shapes are all about a spiritual connection with all living elements. You can get all Star Wars. You see a lot of blues, yellows and oranges. These patterns are a good way to express my” be you” thoughts. My ideas are the same but how to express them, doors have opened.

Get to work on the idea

You set out to draw what’s on your mind. It’s clear and beautiful. You apply water and droplets of color. The opposite happens. Where is the lesson in that? Everywhere. If you look closely you can see the first flower I formed, the one that was about to go in the trash. I got to work. I worked with one idea.

Stop trying to create the version you see, the version you’re thinking and keep going.

Rather than paint with all the answers, just paint. There’s no failure. There’s only works in progress. The only way to get to the good is to not get caught up in the wrongs.

Good work is happening this week. I’ve been drawing, the Butterfly is looking good and there’ s lots more to paint.
