Oh we are getting more members in the creatively hue community. I haven’t figured the right name for our tribe. I love the idea of a tribe because in a tribe there are totems. Everyone gathers together by the fire, telling stories of the greats. There’s spirituality and everyone is connected. Say, maybe I do have an idea! There is many more blooms to come.
I painted some beautiful love you-pink-flat brush blooms. You’ll see them in a few days. Anyway I started a new book. I’ve been working on the book but now there’s a deadline. Yes it’s a color book. Oh, There’s room for us all is a good title. Different is Beautiful, my other book, I use animals to show how everyone makes this world the beautiful wonder that it is. I’ll express the same concept in the color book but with color. We need everyone to make this world go round. It’s the world is a rainbow filled with many colors song. We only have to learn how to work with them, not them but us, how to work together. This book will be a holiday gift for every artist because not only will you learn how to mix color but you’ll welcome and trust who you are.
Thanks for subscribing and reading. I’ll let you know when you download the first pages of this book and the free Ebook. This book is going to be so good. The deadline is December 2021. There I said it. Let’s do this!
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.
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.
I was listening to a James Victore podcast and his words practice without doubt, practice without perfection and practice without comparison are golden. When I practice it’s not that I’m happy or perfectly painting. There is this peace and in that peace are me an the idea. There are no rules, that terrible sense of rules that makes you hold the brush wrong and you’ve made a mistake. Someone shared that very notion with me. We think it’s wrong because we’ve conditioned ourselves to believe such lies. We have allowed outside forces to condition us.
I just had my birthday almost a week ago and I’m still celebrating. I’ve been posting some of my words and getting more likes. These are what I really want to make. Thank you for your feedback. Your likes are inspiration to keep painting. I’m going to keep painting regardless.
I was going to share a Bird of Paradise and I will but there’s this story. It’s a powerful don’t give up on your dreams story. There I was using up some leftover paint, The story, I felt it, Blue was the perfect color to express it. Copy paper instead of Watercolor paper didn’t even matter. I had an idea. I painted. I can’t wait to scan my bloom.
I have so many ideas. I’m working on a Creative Bloom course, a puzzle. I did some good writing for my color book. I’m dreaming and I believe in my dreams. I believe in you too.
I recently read Chrysanthemum. I had to paint Chrysanthemums. The story is about girl who loves her name until she gets made fun of at school. With the help of her music teacher who is also named a flower, Chrysanthemum learns to always love her name.
I have yet to write the words but I will write them in between the blooms. They are
Love your name.
Never seek permission.
I love painting flowers and most importantly being inspired like this. Some may say I’m weird but that’s ok because in the words of Dolly Parton, find out who you are and do it on purpose.
The other day I was in an art class and I painted some paper. I painted on newspaper, copy paper and watercolor paper. Eric Carle reminds me to paint. All we need to do is pick up the brush and paint. We grown ups complicate everything. Here’s to love.
Nature is always whispering love me. Surrender to me.
Now it’s time for tea, Snickers and sketching. Maybe I’ll paint afterward.
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.
