Hi babes. Since I started blogging 4 years ago, I have never had less than 3 post scheduled into the future. You see, I never stop having ideas for posts. In fact, most posts turn into 3 and before you know it I am completely drowning in content that I am wanting to share with you. I told my friend Jayne today that I might be a little bit obsessive about getting ideas out of my head and into the blog.
Today, I write to you from absolutely real time, no posts ahead of me…. just here and now. sharing photos from the last few weeks because I find myself for the first time EVER without any scheduled posts. Maybe this is a psychological breakthrough for me, as I begin teaching for the first time and start to come out of my shell a bit into real time, introversion aside, just sharing in real time, face to face with other artists and stylists.
Did I tell you I am teaching a workshop on the Colorprint technique tomorrow at Edo salon in San Francisco? I am so excited and just a little nervous. I am hoping that this will be the first workshop of many, so please wish me luck and hold courageous space for me in your hearts tomorrow.
Color inspiration from the last few weeks are………
Plants and flowers from the San Juan Islands. I made a mandala (hashtag search #filthandbeautymandala on instagram for more:)
Magnolias against a blue sky. Duh.
The incredible print patterns on Kehinde Wiley’s paintings.
The Seattle Gumwall. Everyone bitched and moaned when the city decided to clean the gum off (apparently they do it every few years) but the gum is back with a vengeance.
Spring flowers on a walk around the neighborhood. 5 year old Selah and I make floral designs together on Tuesdays.
The Brugmansia plant in my friend Brette’s back yard in San Francisco.
The epic amount of Manic Panic hair color that spilled in my suitcase on my way to San Francisco. Yes, that’s right. Every single one of them unscrewed themselves and spilled, causing a veritable rainbow of mess. #chargeittothegame
Love y’all, thanks for reading! HTHG
