Fall Hand Lettering #5

Okay so there I was practicing with a new water color brush. I was doodling some letters. It takes practice to handle the brush and so I was thinking maybe do something for the series. The problem is nothing came out right. Then it hit me the H. I love the swirl and the heart detail. I hadn’t even planned for it. Important lesson is to practice and play. 0925151659[1] 0925151659a[1] 0925151659c[1]

It’s My Party And I’ll…

Cry happy tears if I want to… yes today is my birthday. I am loving loving life. Okay so the picture I had imagined for this birthday doesn’t exactly look like I imagined it but… I did some painting last night and realized something important. I didn’t use a pencil to sketch. I just tested out various brushes. I was carefree and jut drew. Wrote different words some of conversation that was happening around me at that moment.

This is the first time I painted letters this way and I loved it. I think of what it will look with tons of practice. Yeah I think I finally figured out what I want to do and maybe answer the question. What is my purpose in life? I love writing and thinking about my purpose. Why not combine that with the thrill I get when I hold a paint brush in my hand and create what I want.  I am a hand lettering artist. That’s worth celebrating!

Oh quick update…I will be decorating a pumpkin, hand lettering projects, maybe using pumpkin seeds or candy corn to build letter forms and so on. Oh and hand lettering from my favorite place of course Disneyland.

Be sure and subscribe so you won’t miss. I will be listing daily from September 30 through Halloween. I am not quite sure on the days. I am still working out the details.
