Thoughtful Thursday Mark Twain Famous Quote

Featured

Trying to find new ways to be creative with my art so I added an inspiring quote by Mark Twain to one of my paintings:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.”

What do you thinks about my idea and this quote? I think Mr. Twain was on to something when he wrote this.

Thoughtful Thursday – Mandala

Featured

Inner Beauty created by Maria Vidaurre

Mandala is from the ancient Sanskrit language which means circle. It’s normally depicted as a geometric design representing different aspects of the universe. In Asian cultures it is a spiritual and ritual symbol used in prayer and meditation.

I have always been fascinated by the beauty of mandalas. There is something very magical about them. Designing a mandala, helps to focus the mind and create a sacred space within. There is an inner peace that calms you and simply lets the outside world melt away.

There are plenty of books and tutorials online to teach you how to create this ancient art. But looking at the intricate designs created by others can be just as calming. When you need a moment of peace, take the time to explore mandalas.

Find Your Passion Journal Page

Featured

This is a whimsical zentangle journal page I created in my Strathmore 6×12″ watercolor journal, Find your passion… With the odd size, it’s always a challenge creating in the journal but that’s what makes it so much fun!

I painted it with watercolor paints and outlined the design with a Sakura Micron 01 Pen. I added some highlights and shading and finished it off with a little glitter for bling.

The whimsical head and tail feathers on the birds make me laugh and hope they brighten your day as well.
