Summer of Color-GREEN

Creativity is a type of learning
process where the teacher
and pupil are located in 
the same individual.
Arthur Koestler



I am in the process of learning
and growing
and becoming.


This is my GREEN project





It seems like the more I create
the more creative I become.
And the more 
creative I become
the more receptive I am
to the learning and growing
process.

Each day
whether I'm busy or not
I read something about 
Art.


From the Summer of Color challenge





Maybe a new technique
or book on creativity
or finding your inner artist.

Sometimes it's just a quote
or a blog post 
or something on TV.


We are in our 2nd week of Color





I try to soak it all up.
I make creative lists of
all the projects I want to do.

I surround myself with quotes
and uplifting images 
to feed my creative 
Spirit.


I had a terrible migraine the day I created this





I am taking classes to 
not only learn
new techniques 
but to find my
Voice.

What is it and
Where is it I
am Going to?

This was very theraputic for me to do


To make my creations
truly 
my
Own.

She knew she could fly



I am drawn to Words
and 
Birds
and 
Houses
and 
Flowers
and 

Sunshines.

She is perfect just the way she is


I love
collage
and
painting
and 
layering
and 
gluing
and 
using
Words
in 
My
Art 
to 

Uplift.




 Be sure and stop by the Summer of Color Challenge at "Twinkle Twinkle" to be inspired. Thanks for looking:)
