Inktober2017 Day 4 Underwater

I’m getting the hang of this, we are on day 4 which is Underwater.  Sometimes the day to day issues can make you feel you are Underwater but always know things that you see are subject to change.

SKETCHBOOK DRAWINGS WITH PEN – CROSS HATCHING

One of the best times to take your sketchbook with you is when you know you will be waiting for a period of time.   Here are some of my idle time drawings where I did some “Cross Hatching Drawings” with pens.   It really helps the time go by quickly.   These are with the Micron 02 and 05 pens.   You can view more of our works at http://chinue.imagekind.com/Smallartseries,  thanks for following.

When You Hit The Finish Line

Today is day 90 of my Non-Negotiable health and fitness journey.   I completed the 90 days of the first level and I am excited about staying the course for the second level.   I made the commitment and followed till the finish line.

I invested in me and got awesome returns on my investment.   Life will always give us the opportunity to reset our life and the directions we are going.   It is up to us to accept the challenges that are presented in order to move forward and upward to new levels of insight.

As artist this applies to our art as well.  We are always exploring new directions, new heights to make our work better than the last time, more interesting than the last time, better lighting than the last time.  Whether it is painting, drawings, or photography as artist we always look for ways to make it better than the last time.  New concepts, new directions while staying on course in our endeavor to create our art.

Life is about change, and change is about growth which in the end is the investment we make in ourselves that brings us great returns.

HOW IS YOUR 2014 ENDING

Once again we are at the point coming to the end of another year.   This year our focus was more studio working hours, more paintings, more exhibits and completing my first Art book.   Well we did what we set out to do.  All in all it turned out to be a good year for us and it looks like 2015 is going to be an even better year.

We have one exhibit so far in January 2015 and so many ideas as far as more paintings and designs.  My sketch book is over flowing with so much for the up coming year.

As we come to the middle of December, and everyone is running around trying to finish up Christmas shopping….lets stay focused on the real meaning of holidays……family, friends and reconnecting to ones inner voice.

We all have the ability to create a better place, as artist we show ours in the form of paintings, photography, drawings, sculpture, singing, movies.   Art is our avenue of opening doors to creating more beauty,  more inspiring works, more togetherness.

I so enjoy reading and looking at so many of your works of art and you have no idea how you have encouraged me with my own journey of art and for that I say “thank you”.

Art is a wonderful gift this time of year and a lasting gift which does not lose value as time goes on.

Artist you are the shinning light in the world…….create and let your lights shine bright.  Have a wonderful holiday season and look forward to our January 2015 writings.  Thank you for liking our page,  follow us and please feel free to leave comments we really do read them……

 

Lighting The Way

When we went to the punkin patch there were some that were not ready to be picked yet.   The sign said they would be ready in about a week.  This was one of the fields that you could go and pick your own.

The people who run the patch seem to know when to plant seeds so these punkin know exactly when to come up right in time for Halloween and seasonal holidays. Nature at it’s best knows when it’s time……”To everything there is a season”.
