Day 28 – 30 in 30 Painting Challenge: Have been experimenting with new methods which means more went in the trash than on the drying table. But that’s okay, I’m loving this one treasure pulled from the heap of Dreamscapes I did today :)

Today’s Awareness

Work small when experimenting. Less to throw away :D

Day 27 – 30 in 30 Painting Challenge: I love how this 2nd chance Dreamscape eventually turned out. Below is the first version:

I loved parts of it enough to sign it. But, when I looked at it with a fresh eye the next morning, I saw the two large shapes were too similar.  I knew I had to be willing to lose it all to make it better.

Today’s Awareness

Take 2nd Chances.

Day 26 – 30 in 30 Painting Challenge: Saturday morning when I was driving to work, the sky was a magnificent, deep coral that took my breath away. Surrounding mountains and valleys were transformed in its light. I was too.

Today’s Awareness

Painting how the beauty in creation makes us feel can be soul-deep nourishing.

Sometimes We Just Want To Dream

That’s When I Turn To Dreamscaping.

Day 24 – 30 in 30 Painting Challenge: Near the end of the week when I come home from work, I’m tired. The energy just isn’t there to keep on working (on my art). Alcohol ink Dreamscaping is calming and energizing at the same time. Calming, because of watching the inks flow. Energizing because Dreamscapes seem to appear on their own.

Dreamscape No. 508 is created on yupo, but similar techniques and products used are covered in my 3rd Alcohol Ink Dreamscaping DVD.

Today’s Awareness

It’s okay just to flow with the inks. If it brings me joy, isn’t that enough?

Let’s Keep Dreaming :)
