Inspired surf dreams by Paul Carter

Acting on the inspiration when it happens fuels the fire to more and more learning by doing the work.

Here is one such spontaneous art Is inspired by the art of Thomas Kinkade.

I like the houses in the card and the bridges are awesome, so I put together my own perspective of a surf dream.

Next I will start with the first layers of paint and bring it life.

Drawing dreams by Paul Carter
Keep creating and never compare yourself with anyone and always be aware of the thoughts and emotions you do and don’t want in your mind and body and life.

Learn from the past but don’t live in the past it will only keep you stuck in the past and not enjoying this awesome life now in the future.

Drawing & painting tropical surf art by Paul Carter

The first step is to get the inspiration down on paper and draw the design I am after before anything els.  

In this drawing I added a lot of positive reminders.

I put all of the words, quotes, and positive reminders on the back of the wood panel

 This is a 6 x 12 inch bass wood panel which I picked up at the San Clemente art supply in San Clemente California.

I really like to use these panels because they are sanded and clean and smooth and ready to go, and  can be used for all types of paint as you will see in the video.

I am focused on learning by doing the inner work daily and the freedom that comes with more awareness is unlimited and empowering on many levels.

So respect yourself and each other and keep cleaning house from the inside out and please pick up any trash you come across and keep breaking the conditioned chains in the brain and the body.
