I’m changing the name from weird is beautiful to different is beautiful. So yesterday I had the house to myself. I painted. I painted lots of textures. The video is posted on my Instagram @hellomireya. I’m not a YouTuber but I’d like to do more videos on Instagram.
My favorite textures are the ones I just mix up with color. I like just applying the drops of paint. Then using a wide brush to blend. The beauty is in knowing how to blend the right color combination.
Oh and I’m looking at animals. There’s so many to choose from. I’ll just create. No need to be realistic.
One final truth is acceptance. I never realized how beautiful this word is. I accept that I want to keep creating. I accept that I haven’t been dedicated as I should be. I accept that I am a talent and a force to be reckoned with. This part of me is slightly hiding. Hiding. Got to think more on this…
So last night I read some tips on how to get “stuff” done effectively. One could be busy-busy but the deep question is DOING WHAT?
That’s exactly how I felt today, and probably why I’ve been doing some fun art …
in between the illustration painting for the book.
I paint my curiosity and love. In doing so I want to invite children of all ages to be curioous with me. I want them to reach into that big beautiful world of ours and make dreams happen.
A week ago, a fan read my Wise Trees book and found it inspiring. She said the book with all its thoughts and illustrations remind her to embrace curiosity. CHECK
Writing this book about loving yourself and following curiosity. My goal is to JUST LET MY ART SHINE. Sometimes I did feel like…deep breath…like after all this time I should paint better. Why can’t my skies look like XYZ’S. You know I’ll never forget the admirers of my work. It’s positive feedback. It happened today. I was like really, because I could see a bunch of things I could fix. Get out of here lizard brain!
So other people aren’t judging my art with the mind of an artist? They don’t see all the mistakes you see. What a relief!
I’m learning the lesson in each of my creations. CHECK
The thing is am I messing up because of skill, okay sometime I do. BUT most of the time I mess up because I’m comparing my work to this outside source. When really, all I should be doing is looking within and learning along the way.
I realize that this is meant to be. I have to figure out how to make it work and rise above. Look at the lessonS I’ve learned. What went wrong and how can I make it better?
What I paint is only as good as my words and color. How do words and color tell a story? It has to be story of love and curiosity. Does it all have to look good? No and what a laugh. I don’t believe in ugly art.
Every art piece is an opprtunity to explore who I am.
I have to be curious with my color choice and techniques. I could learn 100 techniqies but i’ts more important to bring forth what I have in my heart. Oh and share that with the world! I’ll do it anad each day there’ll be more fans added to the tribe because… there are no imposibles.
