G0…

I did paint two butterflies. I tried to create an Eric Carle butterfly. I wasn’t sure about the color scheme. Oh I kept erasing in hopes of drawing the right butterfly.

I just kept looking at it and the more I did, the more I could see the blending was all wrong. Did I mess up the color scheme?

What is the point of this butterfly again?

Oh yeah …its place is at the end of the poem and book. With the following word…

GO!

Spread your wings and fly with all the confidence in the world. Know that you’ll make mistakes and there will be mean hawks who want to eat you, beware and all the more reason to fly GO LIVE YOUR STORY…

Why not use both butterflies? YES…

Oh my goodness, if I could sum up the experience I’ve had with my art students it’s this! Watching them paint with laughter, amazement, and curiosity was amazing.

Yes, indeed it is a world full of possibilities!

Color and textures

Oh if these colors and textures of past projects could talk. They would say… Fear not. I’m part of your process. Feck Perfuction. I was the color who brighten your gloomy days. I was the texture that invited curiosity to play. I was the color that took your tears and said, There now sweet child you’ll be ok. I was the color blue that made you believe. Yes my green helped you paint trees. Why it’s us pink and green that inspired trees. And it’s us the passion of your life. We’ve been through it all. Oh with you by my side life is a ball! Yeah….there are no impossibilities

Painting this and that

I read my book today. Oh I read a post about an illustrator who said she loves writing stories. That’s me. I’ve always had such an imagination.

How else can I explain looking at a palm tree and thinking hair breezing in the sun without a care. Yes there’s a palm tree in my book.

Today I painted sketches that for years have been locked away in my imagination and a sketchbook. They are weird I admit, but they are me. I love it!šŸ“ This Wise Trees book has helped me realize…

There are no impossibilities

Drawing a horse is hard

PERFECT IDEA! Watch a You Tube video and in eight minutes Ill have drawn an awesome horse. ItĀ  turns out drawing a horse is a whole lot harder than I thought. Not worries I just need more practice.

Yes drawing a horse shape by shape makes so much more sense. YEAH, my horse is funny looking. I stated drawing the two circles and thought yeah okay this is easy I got this and and all of a sudden …I don’t know what happen to the horse. The smaller horse on top looks better for a second drawing. Now all I have to do is draw thisĀ  until it looks like the horse I want it too.

I’m putting this in the awesome keep working on it pile. Yes I love the Just word being made in the sky with thee string of a kite and stay tuned for this idea.

BUT wait I have to paint something for the class project. I worked on some new techniques here and love the tree. Yes there are some issues with the textures and of course the spacing with theĀ  lettering. I really need to practice lettering with paint.
