painting trees with a straw

Here it is. I used a straw to spread the paint every which way. I was careful to blend in yellow over blue to create beautiful shades of green. Then I used a brush to flatten the paint and add a little more texture.

I do love working with a straw as it creates sporadic beauty. But it takes time. The layers work best when you allow each layer to dry before applying the next color.

Love is what I feel when I am in nature.

It’s why I wrote this book. This week I want to explore more ideas and continue to embrace my creativitY

This week’s activity list is to:

  • work on the paperback cover
  • submit the final copy for my paperback
  • top 10 ways to paint trees
  • learn creative ways to market my books
  • speaking of marketing, what’s my story and am I telling it across all of my social media platforms

Wisdom Tree

There was an Oprah speech a Sean Wess podcast I haven’t lsitened to in a long time, Laren Daigle’s You say and a movie.

BUT as I hand lettered my words all I could think about was Muhammad Ali’s rhyming. I ‘ll give it a try.

The only world I want to listen to makes me feel like I can do.

With her breeze she always puts me at ease.

The sun warms me. There is no doubt, I clearly see.

I will paint what I want

I got talent and I’m gonna flaunt.

You see flaws. Please put away your claws.

Cuz I got the breeze, she’s telling me keep walking with ease

There is no greater power than love,

I’ve got love

I swim among the most beautiful doves.

Today I gave a writing lesson to a first grade class. It was brilliant and I discovered …I’m a writer. This week was incredible. I sat down and I drew letters. I drew. The more I spend time in nature, the more I can say girl, Flow. Just let go and create. You got this now get out there because…there are no impossibilities
