A Letter To Me…

Someone wrote a letter to herself and I thought it was pretty awesome! What a great idea!  I’m writing one to myself.

Dear Mireya,

I know that it’s been a while since you had this crazy idea to hand letter and watercolor. Why you decided on this I’m not sure. I just want you to know  that I’m your biggest fan. You are a caring person and yes you have made some lousy mistakes but the mistakes and stuff …that’s lousy. That doesn’t make you lousy. Sometimes I know you struggle with questions and being the best  you can be.  One of these is thinking if your art is good enough and if people will like it. Are you creating art because you want people to like it or do you have a message to share? Listen I know you have a message so don’t be bamboozled. Write your story and paint it too! No one cares that you can hand letter like others-the same words or same message. What is way more interesting is why you are fascinated with trees or crayons. That is what you need to paint more of. I’ve seen your work and it’s awesome.  I see you compare and why you do it is beyond me. That makes me so mad!  They are them and you are YOU! Once in for all who cares what the haters are going to say or do. You know I’m your biggest fan! The big guy upstairs is your biggest fan too.

These are some of my favorites! They make me smile and play. I love the color and the shapes and I’m wondering what made you paint this way? I think you got to do more of this stuff! Just keep playing! Just keep swimming!

 

Stop doubting yourself. All the painting and art lessons are paying off . You are getting better. Believe it! This is awesome and fun!  What do I see? Yes this is rockin’ but tweak the lettering a bit. I think I’ve been hanging out with you for to long and I’M BECOMING A lettering nerd.

What are you doing with crayola? Work more with these too. Awesome. That’s  a neon pink crayon right?
