Self Love

I’ve said I was done with collage animals. and Yet, I keep adding to the collection. I filled my journal with collage animals and insects and WOW. I need a few more wows to drive home different is beautiful. I added a few insects, made a few changes to exisitng animlas and working on a punk rock bird. The digitizing has begun!

I love how one project leads me to the next. For the past couple of days it’s been flowers. It has to be because I painted them with students. Yes, and one cold morning flowers eased my heart. I express self love in my art and books. It’s not about ego. Self love is knowing to look within for the answer you seek. Self love is knowing to believe in you. Self love is taking care of you. Self love is protecting yourself against harm. Selfl love is being open to a solution and better days. Sometimes we need a flower or art to remind us…

A dry blush drush makes beautiful flowers. I should have used a different tone of green but this teal was within reach. And yes 21 ways to paint a flower is the next book. I still need to work on the love book. I will.
