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!!!! 🙂
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. 🙂
