Word Path • Words Replayed and New Art

"Be" on Blue Calm                                                                                                   by Velásquez©2013
This Word Path was in my head all week. It was one I had done last January and I couldn't shake it off. You can see it here. I wanted newness but I think it may have needed to present itself again! I gave it a new watercolor background so it could sit within the calm beauty of the blue watercolor. 
It has been a week of talking with friends in the business about our creative style, our creative work  and the search to find where we fit in with doing what we love. 
My son's teacher said it best when she spoke about the children she teaches and has taught she said
" They will become who they are suppose to be." That will work for us as well!  Loved that!



As a blogger, you are always in search of your authentic voice. 

As an artist, you are always in search of your own style. 
As a person you are always in search of your authentic self, 
When these journeys are taken remember to be brave and be.

Everyone has a word path. One word leads to another.

Word Paths, a Friday feature showcasing possibilities in written words, creative process and artistic pieces. 
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 plan to work the Word Paths out artistically and process them to share with you here. 
You can go here, to my first post on this project and see how it all started.

I was inspired by, of all things, a watercolor pad. I found this great rectangle size of 6 x 18 and felt it needed to written on.
 This size truly lends itself to the flow of script writing. The pad is by Strathmore, Series 400, 140lb heavy weight acid free watercolor paper. Used it in its entirety today so I need to go buy another!




I used all the pages working on the "be" piece. For supplies I used gouache and a sumi brush.




Here is my word path for today 






Be.                                                                                                                                                    by Velásquez©2012
Here is a the original transformed with a new watercolor background.


Happy Weekend • Just Be • Enjoy the Language of Words
