This past week’s painting projects were definitely different than the week before. The prompts were a little easier and I wasn’t inspired to paint more than one card. However, I think they pushed me further than the week before. I even painted a cupcake because I could.
Day eight – OM.
Day nine – Strength of Heart
Day ten – Lotus. This one made me laugh because I really had no idea what a lotus looked like but I refused to look it up. This was not about creating a painting, just painting. My husband said it looked like a flower on a plantain. While it’s not gallery worthy, it brings me joy because I created it.
Day eleven – Mother Earth. Again, it was not about creating a picture. This one was about impression and creating color. I don’t have a brown in the palette I am using (though I did sneak a little brown in from my liquid watercolors for another project). The goal here was to create the colors that I felt represented the earth and not worry about the “perfection”.
Day twelve – triple spiral.
Day thirteen – Sun.
Day fourteen – Air.
While I had my paints out, I followed the Frugalcrafter as she made a cupcake. It’s not too bad. I had some issues because I am using cheap ink jet card stock but I think it challenged me.
In the end, I love the work I am doing. I’m playing with the paint and each day I become more adventurous. Tomorrow, I want to share with you the sample cards I made. While doing these meditations, I’ve been creating little samples to help inspire me for future projects.
