i'm not sure where my previous post went, so i'm seting off on another journey seeking! i'm starting a new batch of paintings and re-writing this so i remember my mindset :) my blog is often just as much for me to document my life as it is to share to you. sometimes i think of things in blog post time... like oh yeah, that was 5 posts back, so a couple months ago. hee.
here's the bare bones first step towards my second series... take comfort fellow painters that they start like this... they will evolve greatly over time, i hope! it kind of pains me to post this... but i'm being brave!
pretend you're a feather powered pirate at sea... soaking in the turquoise deep sea waters as far as the eye can see. you are surrounded by jewels, sea flowers, bold bohemian silk scarves that are faded by sun and sea salt. your ship is sturdy and you have a baby elephant on board that snuggles with you at night to keep you warm. maybe a super hot pirate too ;) you're blasting your favorite sea tunes into the night. you feel alive, calm and full of adventure. you raise your sails in the sun of day and stand at the helm of the ship. you sail up to tropical islands where you fill your treasure chest with more exquisite booty. you drink fresh coconut and mango juice as you sink into the warm sand, hear the waves lapping, feel the nourishing sun warm your skin and take a nap.
i hope my paintings evoke a sense of wonder, jewels, sun and sea and fill you up to help preserve your treasures.
here are some photos of some previously finished pieces that i deleted earlier too;)
