April is Here, Now What?

My 30 Days of Meditative Art is complete, and I'm looking forward for more. But what will that be exactly?

At the midway point of my challenge I was going back and forth with myself, trying to figure out what I'll do next.

Should I paint more? Should I practice portraits? Should I create more Mandalas?

What should I do?!

I've got this box filled with a bunch of art supplies that I've collected over the years and its about time I put them all to use.

I thought about doing another challenge, but there were days when I didn't feel like I was really challenging myself y'know? I mean...., the whole point of developing my skills is to actually challenge myself right?

So doing another "challenge" wasn't going to cut it.

I need something spontaneous, random, something... out of the box

So then it hit me.

Create art based on art prompts.

With art prompts I could:

  • Continue to create art frequently
  • Explore subjects and themes out of my comfort zone
  • And lastly, I can let my creative flow, flow.

When I was doing my 30 day challenge, I would feel robotic and stiff, and the challenge turned out to be me just creating one style of art with out really challenging myself.

It takes a lot of self dicipline, to sit down everyday turn a blank surface into something different and new, but creating isn't the problem. The lack of inspiration and variety is what gets me in a creative block.

So creating works based on art prompts are a perfect fix!

Speaking of art prompts,

13Days of Art Around the World hosted and created by Drea from Aura Art Supply™ will be the first Art Prompt Challenge that I take on in April. 

So... YAAAY! lol.

She couldn't have come at a better time because I was going a little stir crazy on pinterest because I couldn't find anything really "challenging". So,Thankh yahh!! lol

When I complete this prompt, I'll find another prompt to follow and that's just it!

 To keep up with my works here's a few things to know,

  • Follow me on Social Media for daily updates.
  • Subscribe to Da Hive for weekly updates.
  • Subscribe to my YouTube Channel for monthly updates.

One more thing...

If you were on my site several weeks ago, you may notice that quite a few things have been changed around here. 

More coloring pages, art for sale, and my art even on merchandise!

Coloring is fun for the brain, and an artful meditation form that you can hand proudly in a frame!

The pages in my shop are PDFs that you print any where, and as many times as you please!

If you don't have access to a printer, don't worry, I will print every page in my shop and the free pages from Da Hive (48 pages total) for just $8 by email.

In the month of March I created quite a bit of art, that is finally in my shop up for sale. The prices range from $7-$125!

Society 6 is, and I quote:

Society6 is the home to hundreds of thousands of artists from around the globe, uploading and selling their original works as 30+ premium consumer goods from Art Prints to Throw Blankets. They create, we produce and fulfill, and every purchase pays an artist. They create, we produce and fulfill, and every purchase pays an artist. Simple, but huge.

If you miss out on purchasing an original from my shop, you still can get my art on other goods! Great right?

I've spent a lot of time creating art, and re-designing my site to make better customer experience overall surrounding my brand, so if you're a supporter, I hope this makes you happy! 

But that's all I have to say for today! See you guys in the next post.

Bee Vibrant, Bee You, &13LOVE.
