sketches of the past

 

Build a tribe of 14,000. What was I thinking? Now I realize the most important part of building a tribe is to create. Not just create but really have something to say. To speak with the heart and soul.

This year I vow to create EVERY SINGLE day. I’ll paint and write every step of the way.

First project of the year is the love book….

-there are no impossibilities

thoughts are things

So I’ve been gathering my thoughts on the process of writing my book. I had actually been working on another book. I had all these images in my mind–but I didn’t have the skill to draw them. I went for a walk and this idea to create a simpler picture book  emerged. I could create a book with paintings I already painted. I had painted a series of trees and nature scenes.

I love nature. This was the very first tree I  painted and this really started it all. For some reason I love trees and there simply a part of nature that makes me feel peace, love and a sense of oneness. When I am walking I get ready for my day.

Over this summer I’ll think of  the lessons I have learned while working on my picture book projects. I also want to continue to use the creative space I’ve made for myself. It’s a crazy wonderful place that proves you don’t need fancy tools or lots of money to make your dreams happen. All you need is the will to love…

Working on a side project helps so much. This summer seems like a good time to start writing these notes down. I know someday this will make a great little journal book for others to read and plan out their own projects.  Maybe a fill in the blank side by side with my thoughts and how I answered the questions…I like the idea. Oh  tomorrow’s Friday fun day so yeah I’ll work on a poem about art. Yes art’s in the shop and doing well. I am getting back in to shape for the busy fall that will soon come. Time for me and Roxy to go for a walk.
