Lessons From The Earthquakes

InShot_20190206_172038647.jpg Fourth of July 2019 weekend was not what you call uneventful.  Here in California, we had a 6.4 and a 7.1 earthquake.  My younger dog was running around in circles and I had to catch her to calm her down.  My older dog just stayed close to me.  What I observed from these two events is that when your foundation is shaken you become unbalanced and in despair.

Everyone from city to city was unrattled about these earthquakes.  It became clear that we must have a solid foundation on whatever we attempt to do because life has unexpected events that will shake your foundation.

This fourth of July will be remembered for a long time because it stopped us and made us reconsider our foundation. As I continue to grow my candle business I will make sure the foundation of it will remain solid.

Be Safe everyone and secure your foundation.

#ArtistMotivationalMonday:Risky Business

Here is the segment for this weeks show on Anchor.FM.

Being a creative is risky business. There are a lot of unknowns , twist and turns that will cause you to be overdrawn.

Listen to my segment “#ArtistMotivationalMonday:Ep23 What is Risky Business” on Anchor: https://anchor.fm/chinue-phillips6/episodes/Episode-23-e1kikg/ArtistMotivationalMondayEp23-What-is-Risky-Business-a3uoko

Six Months Into 2018

Well if you’re seeing this we have made it to the halfway mark of 2018.  So my question is “how is your year looking so far”.  We have had plenty of eventful things happen since January some good, some fair and some downright discouraging.  Yet we have made it to the mid-year.

Now that we have all come to this point how are we going to finish out the next six months?  It is clear that we are not allowing the distractions, and detours stop us from moving forward.

So take a moment and breath in this next six months of your journey, and know that you are on the right path even with all the detours.  It’s a journey, not a destination, continue to move forward one paint brush, one camera shot, one dance,  on a completed book at a time because the world is waiting for us and our gifts.

Thank you so much for all who have followed me from day one on this journey, thank you for liking and sharing the post, for coming to the broadcast, and just for being a support factor alone the way.

You can also get your art supplies from #BlickArtSupplies just click on the link to your right→

Today we painted A bell pepper, white onion, and potatoes

We used watercolor pencils to sketch out first. The watercolor pencils will blend well with most paints. We used #ArtistLoft Crimson Red, Viridian Green, Yellow Ochre and #Premium Chinese White , round soft watercolor brush, and watercolor pad 6×6.

From Sketchbook to Canvas

When I did this in my sketchbook I decided I wanted to do it on canvas so I could frame it.

This is #Watercolor on canvas pad textured 12 × 16 .

After the paint dried I went in with a #BlackSharpie to bring out more details.

Since May seems to be Mermaid month its the perfect setting.
