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 that tells me I am free if only I believe it to be true.  Imagination, curiosity and weirdness are also at my core.

All I can do as an artist is to do just that with every word and picture I paint. Knowing what’s at the core of you and of your art is what it’s all about.

Daily Prompt: Abrupt

There I am living-drifting at times and then Abruptly this idea emerges from the  sunny breeze.  There it is, even on a cold cloudy day as this may sometimes happen. What do you do with an idea? I love that book and I must answer. I think on the idea  and follow it. Or rather I hesitate but my curiosity and imagination have a mind of their own.

It’s wonderful when ideas like these happen abruptly

thoughts are things

Life is much too short to be vague. I have been thinking about this ALOT. I love my life and I love all the possibilities that I think up. I can create my art and share it with the world. Those who love will.  Those who don’t, well I’ll love.  I’ll create the kind of art that I was born to create. I mean why in the world would I not want to. Why in the world would I allow someone to define me? I define me. I choose to show up. Am I really?  There’s that world vague again. That’s just it when I am loving I’m not vague. Sure there are moments but in the grand scheme of life… no.

These beautiful red-velvet hearts are a new creation that I recently added to my shop. I felt a little overwhelmed with the wise trees book and took a little break…a few days. I’m almost done and have started a drawing class…got to record notes on this tempera paint layering technique.

Visiting old designs

joy

My most favorite designs are ones that I worked on for the thrill of it. The ones I painted with an I don’t know, a giggle smile that started with curiosity and ran with my imagination. I think of the rabbit who huddles with her baby ducklings and below it written with my hand lettering style is an amazing idea. Be open minded. The world has yet to see this masterpiece sketch but the fact that I think of it always, is a sign that I need  to paint it. These ideas are the ones I  hold near and dear and the ones that I need to share with the world.

 

I loved making these flowers with a spoon fork and that idea led to a whole new book idea on creating awesome flowers. Yes one idea leads to the next.

I am so blessed and I thank…well he knows.

Paint a pink tree with a Qtip

I have been thinking about the wise trees book and holding it in my hand. I painted and messed up, started again and repeated the process until I decided to just paint. That has allowed me to paint amazing trees.

Yes this page makes so much sense.

There you are walking along and all of a sudden there it is, a pink tree…

 

Notes:

  • mix-up color using tempera, acrylic and just mix the perfect pink
  • maybe use a little watercolor paint with water and mix that with the paint above so the paint isn’t as thick.
  • then test out the paint color
  • mix a little of the pink with the brown to create an awesome brown tone for the tree trunk (I did mix up an awesome pink.)
  • then use the Qtip and paint
  • just have fun and add the flowers

 

I am having so much fun and Earth day seems like a great time to release my book. Sounds Good,

Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible.
