Creative Heart Monday - Colorful Shapes

Happy Monday to all of you Creative Hearts out there!

This weeks piece is very different from what I usually do.  It was inspired by artist, Fred Fowler.  I was introduced to his work by Tracy Verdugo (an artist that I LOVE!)

Tracy has some little ecourses called Mini Mojos.  I took the one on Pattern, Color and Texture.  She created a piece in the course inspired by Fred Fowler.  So, I figured that I would give it a try.

It's, basically, just playing around with little shapes and colors.  It's really a wonderful exercise because it's sort of meditative, which I need.  I have a bad habit of worrying about the end result.  I need to BE IN THE MOMENT!

List of Supplies:

Strathmore Bristol paper
Liquitex Basics - Cadmium Red Medium, Bright Aqua Green, Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Orange, and Medium Magenta
Golden Heavy Body Acrylics - Paynes Grey, Teal
Montana Paint Pens - White, Black, Red, Blue, Pink, Yellow, Green
Valspar Satin - Toasted Pumpkin (I pick up sample paints in Lowes and Home Depot....I've never used one on a painting before, but I liked this color and it was, actually, a very nice acrylic paint)

Have a great Monday and a wonderful week!
