Projects Help

didn’t make the book

Jame’s Victore’s quote,” hang with me and set your sights higher” instagram post and looking at my watercolor paper. It feels weird not painting. I haven’t painted in three days.

Ah well, the point is I recognize when my brushes and paint tubes call me.

FOr now I’ll look at some more old work and see how this book as changed me. The purpose of this book was to come into my drawing style. I’m still in the process but wow I’ve got a process.

I love this! This post sums up an important lesson that working on one project gets you going and…

painting trees with shapes

This is my book cover. This is simple but it conveys the essence of my book. I love nature and that’s just it, when I am in nature I experience love.

There’s always this voice that tells me I am and I can…

wait that was a tree I painted with a straw.

Ok now it’s time to write a description of my book. As I come to the final stages of publishing my book, I’m a little scared. I’m a lot scared. I’m excited because a few people want to read it. I’ll take that! More will follow and heck I love Wise Trees too! OK for real it’s time to get workin on my book description…

painting trees with acrylic

This is the last and final tree for the book. It’s a weird tree but it’s beautiful. My ending thoughts for the book are that we should allow trees to grow however they choose.

We should protect our trees, give them water and allow them to grow.

Should we not do the same with each other. Yes I think so!

This book is both a love for people and nature. This notion is the premise for a new book.

When you get a BIG IDEA…

GO FOR IT.  I know, I’ve always known when an idea is the right one. The problem is that resistance shows up and it has for a long time…too long. There came a point when I just couldn’t listen anymore. There comes a time in everyone’s life when you can’t accept another come back tomorrow.

Yeah that line was from a frantic mother looking for her stolen child. She has a big idea on where she is and who took her. Yet the world thinks she’s crazy. Does she do what I’ve been dong for far too long. I laugh, because she didn’t. SHE WAS RIGHT. 

Sure, this was a lifetime movie but it’s a true story, about a real family, a real mother who rose above the naysayers. 

So I went from I refuse to throw out another piece of paper to publishing my first ebook. I am  almost done with the second book. I caught myself analyzing detail after detail, There’s going to be no more of that. 

I mean yeah I want to produce the best I can but I can’t go over and OVER the details too long that I forget what I am doing or why. I feel like I keep writing the same ideas and words. Maybe I am ? Maybe I need to keep telling myself this and writing…WHICH IS PROOF I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE.  I must change. I am 

I want to share my ideas about love and curiosity.  I believe my books will do just that. People will be quick to say your book doesn’t matter.  A big publishing company didn’t publish it.  I  say I achieved my goal. It feels great and I have so many more projects to work on. That makes me feel free!

Ellie shows us that togetherness is the best magic. She teaches us what it means to be an artist. Wise Trees teaches the importance of listening to ideas as they ring.

indecisiveness irks me

Talk about repainting and repainting trees. Last night I felt this tree needed more contrast.

I keep going over the story and paintings. This is my first book and I want to get it right.

I spent hours editing my Ana and George book. I realize that I I’ve been working on it way too long. I’m at the point where I, well it feels like an awesome song you keep singing and playing and then you lay it to rest.

I have other books I want to write.  I started the nitty-gritty details like book size and how to include my author name.

I have decided to use my full name. Wait will I? Sometimes this indecisiveness irks me.

I’m almost done with the pictures for my second book…so many thoughts…I think I like the original one better.
