Collage Animals

various paints and origami paper

You know when you get an idea and you’re excitied. And right when you get around to it the light bulb’s out. I love Eric Carle’s collage work. I had fun painting the papers but I don’t think the book idea is going to happen.

These guys are cute …

but I started researching fish and… alll these thoughts floureshed. I have some cool pencils, markers and watercolor that could be used to paint coral reefs, fish and some polka dot paper that would make a great Pippi Longstocking horse. My ideas are about all the animals I love.

These animals are so fun to make. I will always remeber the fun I had at Lee School.

Did you get my free copy of Road Trip?

Thrill of it all

My eyes are tired. I spent hours rectifying a stupid mistake.

The book was done.

Sure I had a few pictures to clean up and edit one last… few times BUT it was done.

I got home yesterday with this excitement. Today is the day…it was suppose to be.

I had been working on another book and saved the final manuscript under the file name Ana & George. I deleted A& G .

Lots of deep breaths and a heart ache later I realized I’d have to start over.

I did have the paper copy and an old file version but what happened to me.

Was it resistance? Lizard brain? Or just my own dumbness as a result of working so hard to finish all three e-books in a matter of weeks. Probably

I’ve been taken out of my comfort zone. I’m tired. I’ve got passion in my heart. I want more. This is good.

-There are no impossibilities

say what?

So here I am reading a book, Creative Inc. and researching Banksy. The artist pops up here and  there with something to say. His ideas are original. Banksy ideas are thought provoking. He’s an artist.  

…which makes me ponder the meaning of my art. What do I hope to achieve? I hope to speak to those who are tired of reading the same old self-help books. You are not broken. You are beautiful so create like it. I want to let the kid play. I want to let the world know there’s room in the sandbox for all of us….

And I take a deep breath…alright
