A Painter’s Palette


Everyone can be given the same palette with exactly the same colors an the same brush…but everyone will create what they want. Some will see it as an overwhelming possibility and others will be so excited at the thrill of creating whatever they choose.   Someone might dream of so many colors and create them. Someone may draw a handbag. Someone may draw stick figures. Another may draw a flower? What would you paint? Everyone will paint something different yet equally beautiful! The point is you can paint whatever it is you want to paint. Paint with your heart and realize that someone out there will see it. You will have their attention for mere seconds. You can change their world. So what will you say? What will you paint? Because you can change the world. If you are doubtful then that is why you have yet to succeed.


I have been taking a step back at my work and going over basic letter forms and working on fundamentals for my work.  For the coming weeks you may see less of my art and more creative activities so stay tuned. Be sure to subscribe so you can participate in more creativities and see more of my art. I will be launching my studio soon as well. Thanks! cropped-0515151552.jpg

Take a letter-any letter and draw it in as many different ways as you possible can. Fill up your page and you may want to time yourself.

For thought


Why do we have to grow up out of the place that makes us dream and be comfortable with who we are. I mean when you are a kid you play and have fun for the FUN of it. You didn’t think about the what-ifs. You lived for the moment and nothing was impossible. Everything was possible!  Let’s get back to simpler times.  This is how we will become our full potential!

Sums up what every artist should be about. Sums up what’s most important in success period.

An amazing quote for the haters out there.

Create your own life.

I love this one and by far my favorite. To tell you a little secret, I need to do more of the out loud. Part of this is putting my work out there via this blog.

This week’s challenge is to step out of your comfort zone and take an adventure through someone’s rags to riches story-any inspiring story really.

Some to try are Chanel of course, and artist through history or current, a movie like Rocky, The Cinderella Man ( James J Braddock), Coal Miner’s Daughter, Elvis and so many more. As you watch ask yourself what is success here and how is it achieved. Now for the hard part compare that to what you have going on right now.

A Painted Version


My experience sounds so corny I know but its the truth. I feel so carefree and just a warm feeling in my heart that this is what I need to be learning and doing. I love hand lettering and water coloring. I design for the child in all of us. The child who has a dream and believes all things are possible. The child who is kind and doesn’t worry about anything. Sadly its that feeling that we as adults grow out of or altogether forget. I was trying to convey this with my art. Looking at it I can see that my letter forms have improved.I will show you what I mean in another example of hand lettering next week.  Here’s to my art and feeling like a kid again. Freeing myself of the worries and if its good or will it sell or does it make sense. I seem to be creating work that really makes me smile and I hope it will for you too. That’s what its all about.
