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.
Color scheme is almost figured out. I’ve got two weeks to make the deadline. Will I make it? Should I make it?
I don’t know, I’m taking my time.
Letting all those ideas and words work out fine.
This live your story poem is good.
Breeze, you tell me I got the skills, the talent…yeah its understood.
I am a writer
With you lizard brain I am a fighter.
Ha this whole Muhammad Ali rhyming thing is so cool! People are lovin’ my live your love story poem. Some are already waiting for the book to come out. Good things are happening….there’s no impossibilities.
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.
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!
So yes Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because it is all about love of course. I am passionate about life and people. I love a great song…Ed Sheeran or Sam Smith anyday. I love to walk my dog. I love my family. I love to paint. I love art. I love crafts. I made these for my family. The love letter was a class project. I know Valentine’s Day has this rap for being commercialized and yes it can be….I saw this Verizon ad about gift ideas. Happy Valentine’s Day! Remember that a true act of love is priceless.
