The Art of the Journey...

Since I started marching through my personal journey as a Fine Arts Visionary  I have found a few valuable jewels that  will be shared on this blog post.

1. I don't use the traditional color wheel formula, that is taught to art students in most BFA and MFA Fine Arts Education programs on how to use complimentary colors. I do know the basics of mixing primary colors to produce secondary colors and that's all. I have my own color choices to discover while I paint!

2. My sketches are not your sketches!

3. The final aesthetics of my art images  does not always equal the technical process. That is because the final painting has typically evolved from something else into what you actually see when it is done.

4. I always admire the technical process of other visual artists more than the final aesthetics of their artwork.

5. Every art peace has its own style and story but they are all symbolic to the Mind of the Fine Arts Visionary Redefined.

While I'm on this Fine Arts Journey...

My personal journey into the Wonderful World of Fine Arts has been all that and more, since I made the decision to be a "REAL" Artists = painting, drawing, coloring and writing about the creative adventures of being an African-American Female Fine Arts Visionary!

Starting the painting process, Stopping and Starting again...I have always been very artsy, but was I really ready to present my very own pictures in galleries, museums and art exhibits? 


Although it sounds like a good idea and it is what most professional visual artists do at some point in their Fine Arts Career, the struggle to make this decision was very real, especially since I wanted to keep almost every picture that I made for myself (and I do) sometimes.

It is also very fun and FABULOUS to be a visual artists in different community art shows with other FABULOUS visual artists. But as I climbed to the top of Mount Art World and started marching around I realized there were so many twist and turns that caused me to stumble down. It was only by FAITH that I was able to hold onto my vision, goals and royal crayons.

My Fine Arts Journey started in Seattle, Washington, the place where I was born and raised. My eyes have seen the Seattle Waterfront, colorful flowers and evergreen trees that are in abundance everywhere I go. My heart moves to the creative spiritual sunrise and sunset of living in the Pacific Northwest. My mind completely understands the sun, moon, stars, wind and raindrop weather that will change several times between night and day.

The Seattle Central District~Africatown, is were I am from and the firm foundation of my everlasting Fine Arts Visionary Empire. That was BUILT with the love, pain and heartache of a true survivor who has traveled the land only to discover that no other place in the whole entire universe, will be able to replace my life in Seattle...This is where my heART has a HOME,  always and FOREVER!!!

Now, excuse me while I adjust my crown and continue my journey through this creative place...ready to PAINT with my BRUSH on this PAPER... my heART's Designer Series, a surrealist image of the 25 REASONS why i LOVE BEING IN THIS RACE! 

The first five Sketches will be posted on Thursday, October 1st.

The one and only original "my heART 25" will be completed on Thursday, October 29, 2015.
