You Are…

The first attempt at a Redbud tree didn’t work out. This happens often. The second was a fail too. The third is the charmer. I had some leftover shades of pink. I started writing words.

Glad I did? Now I have a quote for the shop. I could hang this up on the wall behind my pink chair? I see it in a square frame. Ok, now I’ll scan and clean it up a bit.

Much Better. Note to self. Perfection is Photoshop. Boring.

Just enought to, now that’s what I was thinking.

Painting Poppies

Here’s the first try, sketch and all. What a mess.

I took my time sketching and then I messed up. So I took another sheet and painted. No sketching just painted. Mixed up some color. What a masterpiece.

I still need lots of details but this is great. The color and poppies in three growing stages really express others will try but you live your story. Everyone blooms at their own pace with their own beauty. Wait… that’s a storybook lion who was a late bloomer.

A few more leaves, some white acrylic to cover up the mistakes and more details…this is awesome.

Now it’s time to go do some more digitizing.

It’s Valentine’s Day!

There I was, creating all the elements for a Valentine craft table. I’ve been designing lots of classroom character posters with construction paper. Yes pun intended. I realized this is great practice for breaking down drawings into simple shapes. What and idea!

Then I thought about my famous live your story poem, soon to be book. Why not change the color to pink for Valentine’s Day!

Every day is a day to love yo self and when you love yo self…..there are no impossibilites.
