Thinking Map

I have an idea for my logo. I’m thinking peacock. They chase off preditors, are symbols of compassion and kindness. Oh it’s perfect. Maybe I can incorporate living coral into the blue color scheme I have planned. Yeah why not. I’m excited for all the projects to come. 


-there are no impossibilities

Ugly Light

I had this design in my sketch book for way too long.

So why did I hold onto it. Well I don’t like to paint or wear black. I do like the little black dress…

Today I looked at my design tucked in a brand new pad of watercolor paper. I placed it there as a work in progress.

I painted with a deep purple.

Doesn’t the idea of a purple hat add fun to what I’m trying to say? Yes. Nothing speaks more to me than the purple tone. When you let go of what they’ll say, magic happens.

I imagine a woman walking down the street. All eyes are on her. Some are jealous. Some are uttering how much they hate purple. “Who would wear a purple hat?” they’ll laugh. All the while she is walking, smiling and wearing her hat never even noticing.

When you let go and be you, you could be Audrey Hepburn. Yes.

-There are no impossibilities

BUT what if….

I waste my supplies because I don’t know how to paint—like I expect myself to. What if I want to fill this awesome $12 watercolor notebook with only the best. I could sell these? They could be ready to scan awesome art work.  What if …WHAT IF…that’s how I feel these days. I catch myself doing this ALOT and it BUGS me.

Here’s what I mean:

I painted this and ran into problems. The scary part is that I almost found myself in the pits of darkness and the awful place of despair–BUT I refuse to enter.

A few days later I redrew and pained how I felt. I used different tones of blue. Yes blue is the color of faith, serenity, wisdom, calmness, universal and so much more.  I expected the brown to be lighter but the color’s growing on me.

IMAG0282[1]As I thought of all this, I listened to some powerful words. Make a mess. Messes lead to unexpected awesomeness. Command the respect you want with your art and don’t settle for less. Thank you  James Victore and  Unmistakable Creative.

To make your dreams happen you have to have two elements: absolute confidence and be transparent with people. Where there is doubt there is no confidence. Interesting how at the very moment, I ponder life and self worth I come across these powerful words. I love when this happens! Slowly but EXCITINGLY I am working on my book.

Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible!
