A quick update for my love poem. I finally think I’ve got it. Have this idea for a beautiful rainbow. So I had to paint it. I mixed up these colors. Then I wrote my poem with a brown twistable crayon. The layout didn’t work out so well BUT I kept telling myself just paint and practice and see what happens. What fabulous advice! Besides I’m so loving the wax crayon with watercolor. My picture taking is well yeah not so good.. The color looks black instead of an awesome brown but who cares. I made some awesome art that I know the world is waiting for. Gosh I hope so. YES!
I just fell in love with applying color. I LOVE painting and knowing that an idea is coming to life. The words live your love story look good. Just drew them but they make great balloons.The whole pink and orange color scheme, well I’m LOVING it.
This whole wonderful experience had me thinking about my recent plans to just paint and let everything else go. I want to share my work with the world. Famous Justin Bieber words never say never keep ringing in my head. OKAY it’s not just him. It’s the podcast I just listened to. It’s the words the priest said in church. It’s the children who grace my life. It’s the special girl who reminds me that you should NEVER ever give up especially in dark times.
Art is a huge pick me up when I feel doubt creeping back in and want to fall. A warm feeling wraps around my heart , SAYING I GOT YOU. YOU GOT THIS. JUST hold on and together we’ll see it through. You can’t give in.
So yippee, I can’t wait to keep working on my book and painting all of these ideas. I have my daily progress on instagram at myrasletters. I have this awesome blog but I want to make some changes. Oh brother they are coming soon! So here’s the big news. I won’t be posting anything for the next 40 days. I need time to think and work on me. You bet I will be working on all of my projects and I will be back Easter Sunday! Say! Maybe this is the perfect time to launch my love poem on etsy. Who knows where else. I love each and everyone of you and appreciate you! I’m jumping up and down. Come on jump with me! Till then feel free to like this post if you’re feeling this poem!
-nothing is impossible. Close you eyes and visualize
I’ve been working on this love poem. It’s a cool love poem and not the kind of cheesy love story that you see on screen. It’s the kind of love story that just is. You just love and that’s it. It’s the kind of love that loves… among doubt and distance. No matter how CRAZY OR LAZY you get, you somehow keep on. The kind of love where you’re covered in paint, idea after idea, notebook filled will letter after letter, and people say you’re crazy and you say no I’m not I just…LOVE ART…and yeah too late to change course. It’s an obsession that only those who relate can relate. Yes it’s a hopeless romantic love too! I did sell this poem and what do you know someone, a person, not my mom, bought it! That was awhile ago, years ago, but I’m working on this poem again and will sell it in my etsy shop!
Testing different brushes. Tried using certain color to emphasize the word like yellow for gold
Love the bubble letters and the heart letters too. Maybe it’s a little too cute?
The lettering on the bottom looks much better. Guess I need to practice more. I can’t wait to test the twistable crayons. Crayons may be a good idea to emphasize the idea of like when you learn how to ride you bike for the first time. playing and …you’re not worried about falling because all you want to do is learn how to ride you bike. Right? Love is like this. You just love and do. Oh were is that quote I want to paint it.
I love this poem. I love this poem even more when I think of all the people who will read it and feel the way I do!
