If you have an HP printer you do not want to miss out on this fantastic deal! HP is offering this great service where they send you ink cartridges before you run out.

The service prices are amazing! I pay only 4.99 a month for the ink to print 100 pages. When I run out of ink, HP detects this wirelessly and sends me new ink cartridges, free shipping. I have used this service for 4 years and I am very happy. If my printing needs diminish to 50 pages a month I only pay 2.99. If I print 15 pages a month it is free. Free!!! I save so much on ink. I used to spend $70 every other month. Of course I pring a lot, but that is a lot of money! One of my students is using this service now and for her it is totally free. She only prints 15 pages a month. If she goes over that, it is $1 for every 10 pages. You can't beat this deal. The only catch is that you buy an HP printer. Mine was $75 at Walmart.

"Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go who we think we are supposed to be and embracing who we are" - Brene Brown

What is Artistic Authenticity

Artistic Authenticity is about the process of opening up and allowing ourselves to be spilled into some form of creativity. It is not about getting "atta boys". It is deeper than that. It is about having the courage to be you in the world. Authenticity takes courage. It is risk taking, It doesn't behave according to popular opinion. It doesn't try to shock others. It doesn't try. It is like a caged tiger pacing in its cage, waiting for the door to be opened so that it can run free. Unlike the tiger, the door to your authenticity can olnly be opened by you. If your door is always open, congratulations!!! If not, and you want to be authentic, you must open the door. The door is not locked. It is simply closed.

Why is my door closed?

I struggle a lot with artistic authenticity. I battle many obstacles before I even move...

Paint on Partially Wet Paper

  1. Start by wetting the paper randomly.

  2. Using objects around the house begin painting lightly making an impression or the object. Let the paint go outside the lines. Don't push the paint around, let the paint do what it want. 

  3. Let it dry completely.

  4. Finish the object without covering all the underpainting (the original application). 

These are some examples from students in my class.

Use Your Non Dominant Hand

Wanting to paint more loosely? Try painting with your non dominant hand for a day. This way you won't stay in the lines and you will have more expression to your line. 

Here are some things to try:

Spice cans

Kitchen utensils

Things in your purse

Tools

Shoes

Next;

Compose with pencil one of your favorite items

Draw with your dominant hand

Find your color scheme

When ready to paint, paint with non dominant hand and a large brush you don't normally work with.

Do several paintings this way.
