Do it wrong

  I’m so glad I know who Seth Godin is. I want to be a Linchpin. I am a linchpin. A few days ago I was having this conversation, a conversation that I come back to a lot. A father can’t play legos with his son because the father has to build the right way? IContinue reading “Do it wrong”

Fingerprint Tree

I love this tree. Is there someway I can include this in my book? Yeah probably not. Literally, I placed myself in my art. Well, just my fingerprints but it was so much fun!   The paint was old and by old I mean the water separated from paint…if that’s possible. Ugh what a mess!Continue reading “Fingerprint Tree”

Whimsical Tree

I am not happy with this tree. I knew better. How could I not mix up the perfect brown?   SO I repainted over it. I had to make it work and I may have… I’m not liking the dark areas, especially the left corner.  I do love the idea.  If there’s time I willContinue reading “Whimsical Tree”

Yeah I’ll write books for while.  I rewrote the Ana and George. Ana isn’t a bee anymore. Not sure what animal she’ll be. I cameContinue reading “practice”

A letter to idea

Last night I felt the need to write a letter to idea. I have never in all my life felt the way I  do now about the notion of an idea. I have, its just that the book BIG MAGIC is amazing. I sat down when all was quiet and calm and I  wrote ideaContinue reading “A letter to idea”

Daily Prompt: Core

  …love, art and every drop of paint I use to draw a phrase or these days trees. At my core is a sensitive soul who loves people. That makes me vulnerable and sometimes I say the wrong things. At my core is a song, dance, tear, laugh, love, hope, and a whisper…a voice thatContinue reading “Daily Prompt: Core”
