I painted this last night and it felt so good. Everyting is always better when I paint. I’ve been sick so I’ve taking notes instead.
I started with the color yellow and gradually added small amounts of red. Then I sprinkled some salt.
I felt calm, relaxed, happy and comfortable. Lately, it’s been hard to feel this way. I’m grateful. I truly am but sometimes it’s hard to shut up that voice inside my head that tells me I’m not enough.
I started with yellow because it’s a color that’s bright and should only be used sparingly. It’s the color of friendship. And friendship, an act of kindness even in the smallest amount makes all the difference. The salt represents the unpredicatability and therefore uncomfortableness of the salt.
…and she’s at work on five to six new titles at all times. I read these words in an article about Danielle Steel and her career. What- wait- that’s the thought I had today, as I contemplate my summer plans.
Here’s a list
finish drawing for live your story and publish that book
work on hand lettering a word with in a timed session. I know, I’ll call it word wall.
draw cute animals…I am on the lookout for a good tutorial book
collage animals for the book
road trip book which is based on last summer’s road trip
That’s it world, get ready. I ‘ve done the hard work, and now I wait…WAIT for my printing proof to arrive.
Happy Dance! I have so many people to thank and love. I love you world. I could not have done it without you!
In honor of my book I’ll be sharing more of the art that went into the book illustrating. I’ll be offering my other Ebooks for free until May 7th.
I’ll be painting and adding new art prints to my shop. Now which trees should become art prints? I’ll give that some thought. BUT first I’ll piant and oh yeah spend this coming week in the business and marketing nitty-gritty.
These textures of past projects are looking good. It felt good to hold the paper in my hand and sporadically feel a horse or a turtle emerge. I believe I needed to feel curiosity in this moment.
I have to admit, collage work is a lot harder than I thought. I suppose there is a big reason why Eric Carl painted his textures on tissue paper. Tissue is probably a lot easier to cut than 140 Ib. watercolor paper. I just painted all of these lovely colors and they make the perfect animals. I want to demonstrate that our world and everything is beautlfully, colorfully connected.
I can’t believe my week off has come and gone. I do feel a sense of renewal, motivation for lots more projects. I cut up squares of various textures so I could transform them into letters. Wow I love when this happens…
