Thoughts are Things

There are always inklings all around us. Some tell us what we should or need to do. Inklings remind us what we did wrong and keep on reminding us. Inklings are so important and yet we ignore them. We invite fear and failure for tea. I read this book on Friday and this line about building a desire and planning for it in a way that doesn’t recognize fear or failure is the key to success. Then there are these inklings that remind us of love and the power it bestows on any of circumstances…if we follow the right INKLINGS.  Imagine all of the people who were surrounded by inklings they didn’t even acknowledge. These inklings are far too great and far to WONDERFUL.

 

Little WONDERFUL INKINGS this week:

-the book I read and the beautiful line

-the plans I made

-the trees I am painting and more importantly the way I felt as I painted them

-f… wait what’s it called again.

-love wins

-everybody hurts

-you can be of them or of yourself

if you don’t like your life then create a new one

-keep mixing wonderful color

-FOLLOW YOUR CURIOSITY

-Obsession is key because it leads to all the help and guidance you  need.

Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible.

 

 

a Daily Prompt: Inkling

Painting a tree with a sponge brush

I am so glad I MADE this awesome brush.  I saw this fantastic brush and I wanted to make one a whole lot smaller. I had this old sponge brush and a fabulous idea…LOVE WHEN THAT HAPPENS!

I used a little yellow and green acrylic paint. Did I mix in tempera paint? I may have. All I know is I applied the paint in layers. First yellow and then green. I wanted to build up contrast and get these various tones of green. I applied paint and magic happened…this breeze and the yellow just gives it a warm carefree rhythm. I love it. Another tree for the wise trees book.

I simply had an idea and 15 minutes later it turned out BRILLIANT! More trees to paint and …WAIT A MINUTE… I should continue this mixed media exploration for the next book side project. YES I shall paint fabulous animal characters for my Ana Bee and George Bird book. Sounds like a fabulous idea. I love working on art and there’s NOTHING in the world I’d rather do and I love so much! Thank goodness for that!!

Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible.
