Does green go with yellow?
Option A: Grab your color wheel and give it a spin. Option B: Ask yourself: How does nature do it? I struggled with the color wheel for years. Not because I didn’t understand it but because it never really resonated with me. Finally, I gave myself permission to put my color wheel aside and look to nature instead. Magic! I finally found something that made sense to me on every level because of this simple reason: Nature never makes a mistake as far as color combinations are concerned. Keeping is simple is often the best way of doing things.
Someone said that it must have felt like I was like working on 22 (the number of students in my class) paintings at the same time. I found this to be an extremely accurate statement. To juggle jumping in and out of 22 paintings takes an incredible amount of energy. Imagine jumping in and out of 100 paintings over 5 days. Exhausting. Amazing. Totally worth it.
Would you believe me if I told you these were not abstract paintings?
5 days. 35 hours. 22 students. Over 100 Fearless Abstract Paintings.
Q. Please help! I am painting a piece for a friend and am loving what I am laying down but with the most recent washes, the bottom layers are bubbling and peeling off as I paint.
Q. I'm told that I should separate my art business from my life stuff, which puts the blog I have now in question. Yet, I'm not convinced this is the way to go for me. My art is so intertwined with my life and vice-versa. Do I really want to separate this?
Still don't believe me? If the next 25 students don't convince you then I'm afraid nothing will.
1. Beautiful interiors (So that I can imagine my paintings hanging on the walls)
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
