I was out taking pictures of my lovely Magnolia tree a couple days ago and I was so inspired by what I saw I just had to make art!!!  Have you ever been so inspired by God’s handwork that you just had to create too?

This is so amazing!

And look at this one!  I couldn’t just sit there and look at it – I had to draw it, and then I had to paint it with my watercolors…

And it turned out okay.  But something was different when I drew this and painted it in watercolor…  I had a deep joy while doing it.  And even though the outcome wasn’t amazing – It still brought me great joy and I loved it 🙂  I hadn’t experienced that deep joy before in any of my art!  I think I had a breakthrough!!!

So I looked around on Pinterest until I found a layout of some real flowers by Bianca Snow and I set to work again…

And look what emerged!!!  Out of me!  From my heart!!!  So, now I’ve decided I’m going to practice every day and become a famous Botanical Artist!!! 🙂 

Do you like to dream?  What do you dream of being some day?  I’m a big dreamer and I sometimes think that nothing is impossible.  Then I remember – With God nothing is impossible!!!! 🙂

Happy SimplyLiving!

I was just reading through the above post that I made on April 12, 2016 – and today is March 18, 2017 – it has been almost one year later.  Since then I have been engaged in a botanical illustration journey that I would love to share with you!  I have made it easy for you to follow along with that journey by creating a separate blog, crrbotanicalart.wordpress.com – I hope you take time to check it out. 🙂
