Everyone has a word path. One word leads to another.
My goal is to present three to five words or three to five lines.
I may go to seven words or seven lines but probably not often, only if needed.
I sent my oldest off to school with his lunch packed and ready to take on the day.
The little one, who cannot decide if he wants to be Woody or Buzz Lightyear slept later than usual,
so I was able to paint some words in Spanish to share.
Thinking in Spanish today.
Spreading some Latin love!
I started with one idea and ended up in a better creative place. While I did some writing warm ups I used a scrap of, oh yes, my butcher paper to get a feel for type size and length for what I thought would be my final piece of art. I like what was created on my practice paper sort of speak. So this being my inspiration I went to the next level. I used wrapping paper the color of Spanish coffee(more milk than coffee) with a nice sooth texture. I for some reason I relate everything to coffee. While painting, the brush and ink moved easily on this paper, love that feeling. I used a combination of brushes, my sumi brush and my favorite Kolinsky brush, sometimes I wonder why I own over fifty brushes when I truly favor and use five of them.

Mi Amor Mi Corazón Mi Vida My Love My Heart My Life
When I write or paint these words they have special meaning in my heart. It is my family, my husband and my boys that I think of. Even when I whisper them to myself as I paint they are the ones in my heart. These words are used as terms of endearment. Much like sweet pea, honey or darling.
Here is my word path for today
