Let the kid play

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.

Then I begin the paperback book formatting.

A little Late But Its Great…

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! I am late but my favorite books are so many.  Oh gosh here are some clues. Oh that Sam I am, Horton’s Big heart, and all the places we’ll go…

I love these books and they always make me laugh and smile. Oh yeah! I wanted to paint something that express my love for books. I also wanted to practice design elements! Here we go!

Oh one more thing – you know I thought it would be fun to look at Dr. Suess and go behind the scenes of his great books. Will do this next week!

See you soon!
