Get Lost In Your Art

I was lazy this week in writing this post. Sure I’ve been working on art BUT for a while I took time to think about where I was going and where I want to be. I have taken over 1oo classes on how to letter and watercolor. I think it’s time to really roll up my sleeves and take off the training wheels. I want to trust in me and have fun. I’m going to stop taking these classes and feeling sad that my work doesn’t look like the ones who are the most popular or win the prize.Ok so I don’t always feel this way but want to eliminate all negativeness and just play.  I mean who cares. All I want to do is do what I do when I take different tools, or toys as I love to call them, and just paint.  I like just mixing color and who knows what color I will create.  I like feeling like a kid and feeling so free to fathom and flow to my heart’s desire. Honestly this is when my best work happens.


These 5 minute draws are awesome.   Gosh I drew this awhile ago and reading it now and visualizing the town all painted in glittery red is so awesome. Oohh maybe this would be great with the new glitter gouache I found out about today. Yes it does exist! I was thinking of how I can create an inspiring piece to get out there and do something amazing that benefits us all. Yeah I wanted this to be in the Amelia Bedelia kind of way.



I love just painting over an already used piece of paper  just to save paper. Then I love this writing over writing technique. Who knows when I will use this again, but I will because I love it!


I love the book I’m writing and the love poem is turning out awesome. Two thoughts for you: rainbow and watercolor wash. I’m so excited. I can’t wait to add this process to my blog. Oh and I think I found you and I’m never letting go!

I love all the new changes I have planned for this blog and for the projects I’m working on!

-nothing I mean NOTHING is impossible!
