thoughts are things

juxtapose unexpected combinations of colors, shapes and ideas —J. F. T. Bugental

What a beautiful quote. I do like this word and brings to mind a watercolor project. These kids were painting. I reminded them to paint their flowers using bright beautiful colors. All children followed the the “rules” except one.  Later on as all the paintings were drying spread out across the table, I gazed. The painting that sparked my interest was the black flowers. I saw him painting and he enjoyed himself. He seemed calm in a slightly melancholic way. I wanted to know more and understand why he painted with dark tones even when as another student questioned it. Is this not what I hope to do with my book the wise trees and all the work  I do? YES

I feel this way sometimes. I don’t think rules. I j paint what I want and sometimes how I FEEL.

I did that here:

Abstract watercolor activity

I have tons of projects. The trees I’ve been painting are not your typical trees but they are my trees. This whole process reminds me to JUST BE.  Oh to be a walking juxtaposition.

Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible.
