IF – Resolve

The weekly word for Illustration Friday is Resolve, appropriately enough.

mixed media on 12 x 12 canvas board

Resolve to be quite, listen, make peace, be still, believe, embody mindfulness, dream, create and love to your fullest.

I was very much inspired (obviously) by my new book, Taking Flight: Inspiration & Techniques to give your Creative Spirit Wings by Kelley Rae Roberts.  I love this book.  Kelly is inspiring, gentle, supportive and encouraging. She takes some beautiful techniques, contributed by many other amazing artists, and gives step by step instructions to “give your creative spirit wings”. Everything you need to get the paint brushes out and make a mess.  And a mess I did make.  My hubby gave this book to me as a Christmas gift and I love it!

    When I first saw that illustration on the top left of the book cover, it reminded me of your work. Love your “Resolve” painting, fantastic daily reminder.

    I’m slowly catching up with my emails, I’ll get my info to you on the bird swap asap!
