Spring Time

Been lacking big time with all creative projects. My energy is focused upon you guessed it, the wedding. Charlie and I had every intention to keep it simple, but somehow it's taking up more time then I expected. It's all very good stuff, and I am not complaining at all. I had a nice rhythm of painting, and spending time in my studio before the wedding took over.

My creative goals don't even exist right now. Little discourage with the way some of my dreams have turned out or not turned out. Sometimes I don't think the universe wants me to excel as an artist. So maybe that's why I have not picked up a paintbrush in a while.

My seven year project has been delayed a bit, and will have it finished by the end of this week?

Purple Bloom

Purple Bloom
This past month I participated Louise Gale's Creative Color Challenge, and the painting above is what I created for my partner. The creative color challenge task this time around was to create a piece with a flora them using complementary colors only. You could use whatever medium you liked, so it was pretty wide open. I struggled with this piece, and had to start over several times. Once I was able to let go and not be so much in control - I was able to create a piece that I was satisfied with.

On the wedding front - I picked out a dress and simply love it. I purchased it used from recycle bride, but the bride-to-be never wore it! Lucky me! I would post a photo of the dress, but Charlie does not want to see my dress until the big day. So everyone will have to wait until the end of June.

Still working on my seven year project, and hope to have it done by the end of this month. It's gonna great!
