Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday!
I’m excited to share this beautiful new book with you today, written by my talented friend Carrie Schmitt, called Painted Blossoms, AND to give away a copy to one lucky winner!
Carrie asked 13 artists (including me!) to share with her techniques, truths, and subtle practices that help them express visually what wants to come through them, and she incorporated those techniques and tips into her own paintings to see what happened, through various demos and projects. Cool premise for a book, eh? Not to mention that it’s GORGEOUS! Carrie’s work is just plain beautiful, no ifs, and, or buts about it.
And this book — both her writing and the beautiful paintings, tips, and projects held within on its pages — is filled with soul, kindness, inspiration, love, and a clear + true passion not only for creating beautiful art, but also for sharing it with and teaching others how to create it for themselves.
In short: you will love Painted Blossoms!
