Color update (soon to be finished)


Here’s how far I’m at the moment, worked on this for a few hours last night. Late into the night, it seems that I have more of a spark of imagination at night. When I’m supposed to be sleeping and in dreamland, I feel the most creative.

If sleep wasn’t important I would sacrifice a lot of sleep for art time. But If I don’t sleep a certain amount of hours I feel sluggish all day. Not working to my full potential. It’s in the small, focused intense moments where you build yourself. Not all the sloppy fast moments when you’re trying to hurry and finish something. Similar to try to run in front of a person in a race.

We’re all moving at a different pace/ frequency, move at what pace is comfortable for you. To move very fast without thought most likely you’ll go down the wrong path and become frustrated. The race never ends. Remember to take time to breathe

Remember how I said, sometimes I get in the ‘Zone”. This is the best analogy for me to explain. The race, we’re all running at different paces. Don’t try to be first or last. Just become what is within you. The greatest you.

When drawing I “warm up” for the short race. A mental warm up. Coloring in the shapes is jogging for me. Find a pace to follow on, be steady and you’ll conquer and destroy. I reached the “artist high” or “runners high” when coloring this time again. It’s probably the best sensation I can ever feel. This feeling is a feeling of bliss. The pencils move without thought, they just do. In such concentration.

Whenever this happens, it feels as if the colored pencils, take control of me. My fascination with colors is so intense, I get this childlike feeling when I have colors in my hand. I always appreciate these moments with intense love and gratitude. Only if this could happen every time. Trying to train my body to do this more often, if you understand what I’m saying.

With the colors that have been added, what do you see in the picture revealed in front of your eyes? Remember folks, anything is possible. Don’t have the colors throw you off. The imagination is infinite and so are you.

    • Thank you, appreciate your feedback on this piece. I can easily understand what you’re saying don’t worry on being “weird” most don’t understand the crazy “complex” talking.

      Thanks! πŸ™‚ awesome hahah, hopefully your dreams bring you creative thoughts. I always try to remember my dreams I rarely ever do.

      No problem, thank you for enjoying the art work.

      Have a great rest of your day man! πŸ™‚


    • Thanks janet! πŸ™‚

      That’s okay, as long as you enjoy the picture for how it’s. It could just be one bug abstract blog. But as long as it makes you happy who cares, hahaha.

      Thanks again.


  2. This is amazing, by the way I loved the shark as Well! 😁 I too am more active and creative during the night when I am supposed to be sleeping. Key words “Supposed to be” …. I think it is just the imagination getting it’s chance to run wild after everything we’ve consciously labeled important like work/ school and eating are done.

      Awesome, hint. They might be familiar drawings in a weird way.

      I totally understand, hahah. “Supposed to be”

      Yeah I can agree with you, I understand. This might sound weird but I think about art and everything else I have to attempt and try to do, with conccios effory. The art is just here, hahah. If you understand, try my best with the words I use with others.

      • You’re welcome Brandon!
        That’s funny you say they might be familiar, I thought so…
        That does make sense, so I think what your saying is… you are constantly thinking of art? It’s just kind of there waiting for you to do something with it until your ready.

      • Yeah all moments I’m thinking of art. I only wish I could work on art full time. That’s the dream and what I’m working for.

        Yeah I see the future in a way. But don’t know what’s there till I do anything. If nothing is created then nothing is there at all. To create something “bad” is better than to not even create anything at all.

        I don’t feel like I was born in the correct time year, hahaha. Very abnormal mind set and thoughts compared to most

      • That’s very interesting and funny you feel that way. I don’t feel like I was born in the right time either, I feel like I should have been born decades beforehand, centuries even. I guess some would say it’s abnormal for someone to think so but I don’t think that at all. I feel like I don’t mesh well with this time, it just doesn’t fit. So I completely understand what you mean. Reading, drawing and writing are what I enjoy to do to pass the time.

      • I connect to all of these words. Feel the same way, you described it perfectly. Here’s a good example of what I’m thinking. All time is “now” so whatever you do now doesn’t even matter. It’s just a number with a date what’s stopping you. Just ignore everything and do you. Hahaha.

        Thanks for explaining your thoughts and feelings.

        Have a great rest of your day! πŸ™‚

      That’s okay, hahaha. All I ask for is you to enjoy the picture as it’s. The image can be whatever you want it to be. Just use your imagination, if it’s a beautiful colorful blob then so be it. Hahaha.

      Have a great day! πŸ™‚


  3. Oh it looks beautiful! πŸ˜ƒ

    • Thank you. πŸ™‚

      Agreed hahaha. Rest is needed or you’ll lack in everything. I need to try for 8 hours that’s my mark. A lot of people run on little sleep, that’s very scary for me. Don’t feel like doing that all, rather sleep and be 110% Then sleep for crap and be a lagging robot. Hahaha. If you understand, don’t want to be in autopilot mode. Want to feel here and alive.

      Thanks, I just type what I feel in the moment. Thought of all of that in the heat of the moment. Awesome! Very happy to hear you enjoy the words I have to say. πŸ™‚ That’s a plus, happy you enjoy the words and images and everything in general. You’re very supportive and a loving soul. Thank you. πŸ™‚

      Hahaha, I remember. True, but I guess we’ll have to wait till I’m done for you to know. πŸ˜‰
