Motivation Mondays

Gerber Daisies are my favorite-thing-short-list, barely beneath Golden Retrievers and right above Hawaiian Shave Ice. These petals are from a smart boy’s bouquet. The colors were too much for me to waste in a vase of water so I taped them to some paper. I justify this flower torture because they’ll live forever when i make them into a winning design.

This little orange was from a quick marker sketch done on the back of a Vitamin Water receipt from Wholefoods. I’ve been carrying these little baby markers around in my purse. The lack of solid black line can get me thinking in a totally different direction.

My sketches tend to be in monochrome. I try to grab a few markers or colored pencils on my way out the door an make myself use them before I get home again. Color isn’t the easiest for me. Sketching just happens but color takes a lot of thinking time.

How do you incorporate color into your thought process?

  1. aw the petals remind me of something i used to do when I was smaller; I used to draw what i called the “heart of the flower” (because i didn't know the real name, and i still don't). I didn't like how i used to draw the petals, so i used to go to my mom's garden and take some fallen, but still fresh, flowers and petals and glue them on the paper! I wish i could still do that, because that's the only thing i could do. I can't draw humans, but your drawings and designs are really pretty!

In other news, it's 72Β° in Utah today where grilled goat cheese & cucumber has me at hello. Point and shoot. 
#isthisreallife #utahskies Grateful for the recent influx of friends visiting us here in UT - Most nights @matteck35 I are in bed and streaming Netflix before 11, but the Brooklyn Kids arrive and remind us that we're young and fun and that the night still belongs to bright lights and bonfires. πŸ”₯ 🎢 ✨
