Ha, I didn’t sketch with a pencil first. I had a color scheme in mind and let my creativity lead.
The first time I painted this, it was a total disaster. Anyway. I looked over my first book dummy for Road Trip, I thought and thought. Everything leads back to enjoying the process. Oh and having the right attitude is important too. But enjoying the process is having the right attitude. Again Shantell Martin’s words appear. There are no mistakes. You have to love the process. I do. I really really DO.
Writing books and painting them is all I want to do. Even the tedious stuff is worth it. Nothing ever feels forced. Yeah… I painted this dreamcatcher as reminder that your beautiful mind and your heart has to drive out the evil.
Ok so next week,start the illustrations for my book, do some more watercolor exploration, and read more. Oh That’s right, my ebook officially launches July 17th.
