"Soul Food" Book Launch Blog Tour & Giveaway. A few years ago I took a year long online course called IGNITE... This is where I first met artist and writer Carol Lowell. I was entranced as I watched Carol's idea for a book 'Soul Food' blossom and take shape.
I posted this image on Instagram recently, with the question: what color do you think this painting is? (clue: it isn't actually grey!)
Color is an integral part to all types of creativity, it influences our moods and emotions, it's linked with memories, and it's everywhere! As we tune our eyes in to notice it, life becomes brighter and more vibrant.
What's really beautiful, is within the group of creatives brought together by TWELVTY, there's such a diversity of talent and such a fabulous range of expression. When you take a subject like color which can be applied to most every medium, it translates such variety of techniques and media and manifests a constant source of inspiration
Some lifetimes ago, a sixteen year old version of me failed to get the place in art school that she'd pinned all her early hopes to. Dismissed by the grown ups who'd repeatedly explained: 'being an artist isn't realistic' led to years floating adrift from my calling. (They were wrong. And this isn't what I do, I've come to realise, it's what I am)
