Art education, inspiration and encouragement for children and parents in Arlington, VA
I didn't know what this would turn out to be, I just starting making flowing shapes and this is how it turned out. I love it very much. It makes me feel as if it's water: flowing and peaceful. I'm sure it started as the sun, a cool, blue sun. Only in art can you paint a blue sun that radiates calming water waves.
Perhaps it's another planet far away with blue energy for calming and healing the soul. For quieting the mind and focusing on the heart. Perhaps the waves seep into and through connecting all we are to all that is because the blue can do it so very well.
Nothing can make me want to be anything but what and who I am when I paint. I wonder how others get that in what they do, the work they do. I'm sure we are all made to plug in to the same outlet only on a different wall, maybe it's engineering, or speaking, cooking, or planning cities wall with a special outlet. Whatever radiates your bue waves to the rest of the universe in peace and everlasting knowing and being, I say, go for it, do it and keep on keeping on.
If you want a piece of this blue mind flow, I get mine with watercolors, they don't have to be expensive. Watercolor paper, paint and a desire to be with the moment as the paint hits the paper. That's all there is to it.
Come along and dip your toes into the cool waters of the pallet that flows from your fingers. Let it get out of you and onto the paper so you can see how beautiful you are inside.
