……and the flowers and the TREES and the moon up above….and this thing called LOVE. Oh no, not love of a human or animal, I’m talking about the love of something that cannot effectively give love back in return. You know? that CRAZY LOVE, like the love of paper or stamps or the smell of paint. This is the LOVE that I want to chat about.
*All you need is Love
*Love Love Love
*Love lifts us up where we belong
* And IIII-eee-IIII will always Love you-ooo-ooo
*You can’t hurry Love, no you just have to wait …
Ok, that’s enough singing. I sing when I am happy, especially when I am creating something Arty.
CONFESSIONS OF A TREE HUGGER.
I, Wendy Walsh, CRAZY LOVE trees!!! There, I said it! Yes I have hugged many trees. Now on a more serious note, I receive a lot of inspiration from trees and they pop up often in my artwork. Cherry blossoms, Australian Eucalypts, Willow trees by the waters’ edge and Cypress trees clustered together are just a few examples of the many trees that I love. There is more to mention but I am sure you don’t have all day!!
MY TREE SYMBOLOGY.
-They remind me to stay grounded yet remain flexible in difficult/stormy situations.
-Trees that are seasonal (deciduous), allow me to observe the cycle of life and understand that everything (including our moods) has a beginning, middle and end.
-Trees sustain our breath and constantly provide beauty and awe.
-They protect and nourish the little things in life.
-Trees provide shade; a place to perch yourself on a chair with a friend and chat.
-Its trunk entices us to scratch in the name of our first love, after the first kiss; engraved forever ’til the test of time.
I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture.
TIME FOR THAT CUPPA & BIKKY.
For inspiration this week, why don’t you write down 10 things you have a CRAZY LOVE for. Explain to yourself why and the meaning it has to you. No-one needs to read this but you. Let this inspiration get your creative juices going. Grab whatever medium you love to use and go for it…love the process to completion.
WHAT AM I GOING TO CREATE?
I have purchased a wooden art panel/canvas to work on this week. I have not worked on this type of substrate before, so a first for me. Yes, trees will be my inspiration. On Friday, come visit here and view what I have painted along with reading about the journey with my artwork.
I love it when you comment. Please type in your name and have a chat with me…that would be so cool!
Thanks, Wendy xx
