Day 22 #colortober22

DAY 22 #colortober22 TURQUOISE I AM

My art meditation on day 20
using the color of the day, “toasted almond”

Yesterday, I was recuperating from an event and needed some down time. I took the color of the day and instead of jumping into creating something specific, I took just the color and started mixing hues of brown to make something I thought looked like “toasted almond.”

Counter to what one might believe, taking time to create, play with art supplies, color and your imagination can actually give you energy and recharge your mind, your inner strength to do more in your life. It can build confidence, even spark your creativity to find solutions to problems you were feeling frustrated about. It’s pretty surprising really!

So, when you are tired, overwhelmed, or frustrated, try pulling out some paper and even a simple pen will do. Colored pencils, markers or a dollar store set of watercolors…. just PLAY!

As you progress through your time playing with color, you will start to notice a shift in how you are feeling.

I have been playing with the idea of “reverse coloring” which means creating an image, even these simple circles of color, then creating a pattern or image on top of them. Give it a go. Paint or color a simple circle and then draw something over it, like a butterfly or flower, maybe write some words that popped up as you were painting …. allow this process to reveal the words or images you need for the day.

This kind of art meditation can help you process whatever is on your mind. It will help you cope with life better every time you do it. It’s an approach you can take to achieve more balance and overall well-being. It is not a cure for anything, but at least for me, it never ceases to amaze me with how much better I feel because of taking the time to simply “be” and create, no matter the outcome.

It’s not just an exercise for artist’s – it’s for any one!

If you are following along and have given it a go, I’d love to see your work. Send me an email at [email protected], message me on social media, or tag me @lisakindlearts!

From my sketchbook

From DAY 15: SKY

SKY: For this day you were given the creative prompt: “Go outside and look at the sky for at least 15 minutes. See how many shapes, or animals you can see. Notice the colors. You can also choose to explore the night sky. Do you see any planets or constellations? What comes up for you as you take a few moments to reflect on what you are seeing?

I had fun playing with all the hues of blue, adding some violet as I see it often now in the Arizona sky.

One night this week, as I sat outside and the sky darkened, the stars kept getting brighter and I realized the largest star I could see was actually Jupiter, and not far off, the planet Saturn.

DAY 5 #colortober22

Day 6 #colortober22

Day 7 #colortober22

How about music and
colors to inspire your soul?

What songs have the words “wild” or strawberry in them?

Are you smiling as you think of things that come to mind? Do they fill up your soul or inspire you to create something?

Maybe a new dance, a painting…. write a poem? Does it remind you of a precious memory making strawberry jam with your grandmother or making a strawberry rhubarb pie with mom in fall?

Take a minute to reflect. Allow yourself to feel the goodness of those thoughts today.

Enjoy these classics while you reflect and relax – have a wonderfully, colorful weekend!

Day 9 #colortober22

DAY 9: MOOD INDIGO #colortober22 FULL MOON VIBES

Read about tonight’s full moon and learn when it will be fully illuminated; and how it changes color as it passes through the earth’s atmosphere because of the light that is reflected from the horizon.

Photons bounce and scatter along the horizon, creating the colors we see.

October’s full moon, the Hunter’s Moon, occurs on Sunday (Oct. 9) when the moon will appear large and orange-hued on the horizon at around sunset.

Skywatchers will be able to see the nearly full moon for several nights before and after the Hunter’s Moon  —  which gets its name from the fact it once signaled a time to hunt in preparation for the coming winter.

The Hunter’s Moon is the first full moon to follow the Harvest Moon  —  which fell on Sept. 10 this year. The Harvest Moon itself is the first full moon after the autumnal equinox that signals the start of fall in the northern hemisphere. This makes the Harvest and Hunter’s moons unique as the only full moons that are tied to an astronomical event and can actually happen in different months. 

Though the Hunter’s Moon will reach maximum illumination at around 4:54 p.m. EST (2054 GMT) on Sunday, it will still be below the horizon at this time. That means skywatchers will have to wait until sunset to see this full moon.

As the full moon moves above the horizon on Sunday, it may appear larger and more orange, taking on a fitting appearance for the fall season and for the build-up to Halloween. This is the result of something called the ‘moon illusion‘ and the fact it is being viewed close to the horizon.

The orange color comes about because as we look at the full moon close to the horizon, the light that it reflects towards us is passing through more of the Earth’s atmosphere than when it is close to overhead.

Molecules in Earth’s atmosphere are really good at scattering photons of blue light which have shorter wavelengths than red light. This means that blue photons bounce around the sky before hitting our eye  —  and that’s why the sky is blue. Longer wavelength red photons slip right through these molecules and straight to our eye for the most part.

When red photons reflected by the moon have to pass through the thickest part of the atmosphere at the horizon, the chance of them being bounced around is increased.
