Curiosity is a mind changer. Curiosity allows you to dream,imagine and most importantly wander. It’s the greatest gift that led us to fly in a plane or on Space Mountain.
I saw a strange movie last night. It was about a woman who’s brain lived but her body died. Through a brain transplant she lived on in someone’s body. What about the heart? Isn’t the heart where love and curiosity live? The brain is the door or gate that opens and releases…
I get these creative spurs. My heart’s like YES. My mind’s like I don’t know. One can’t exist without the other.
I could sketch these ideas for today’s sketches on love…
…and I found an awesome marker to do all the hand lettering.
What an awesome brown. I’d like to buy more of these. Yes!
…and then there’s this obsession with hearts. This book has been about moving forward and learning to let my creativity grow. Sometimes ideas work and sometimes they don’t. In the end it all works out.
and you’ll get amazing art. I love watching the kids paint. They don’t think twice. They pick up a brush and go for it.
Yeah, watching them reminds me of what I must do. We artists need to feel the freedom to create and have fun. It’s within this type of creating that you can be free to push past the mistakes, be your best and change the world…
My book is coming along. It’s taking me a lot longer than expected but I’m learning lots of lessons. Tomorrow I’ll paint the butterfly and finish redoing book covers. Oh gosh, I’m going to have to start hand lettering the words.
I’m so grateful to be teaching children the beauty of art. Art makes me feel like the world is mine and there are no impossibilities.
I’ve been decorating a classroom. It’s been taking over my days. But I can’t rememebr a time when I smiled so much! I had to remind myself of home and the non-art to-do list I have.
I should film the awesomeness we made. The children loved their art.It was a gift to see their faces light up with all the confidence in the world.. What a beautiful moment. Can’t I do this FOREVER. PLEASE.
I say yes. I am working on my next book and almost half-way done with the illustrations. YAY!
The interesting part of all this is that:
I’ve been working on my art.
Collage butterflies just have my heart.
But I messed up the hand lettering
Did I pin the watercolored leaves in conontrasting color, I’m doubting myself and it stings.
BUT I overheard them say,” Wow I love your color, you know what your doing.”
I’m and artist, they say. I know and it feels amazing!
I’m ready to finish my book.
I see them give my art a second look.
Yeah, it was meant to be.
It’s time to put your name on the cover.
That way we all can reunite with curiosity, there’s a whole world to discover!
I should take some pictures, perhaps a video.
Maybe turn this experience into a craft book, that would be neat-o!
