DESKTOP ART // PALETTE NO.10

Palette Wallpaper Meredith Bullock It's been a while since I posted some free desktop art, but that doesn't mean the paintings and creations haven't stopped. I've been painting so much and loving every second of it.

Enjoy this rendition of my latest palette artwork, Palette N0. 10, and see more of my painting and #FridayPaintday work here. Happy Friday!

DESKTOP ART // FRIDAY PAINTDAY

Watercolor Wash Free Wallpaper Download Desktop Art Today marks the first Friday that I'll be painting for myself, because I can't remember the last time I created for myself. Several months back I wrote a newsletter about this very thing and realized how much I missed painting. So to get back into it, I'm dedicating 1 hour each Friday to paint and create for myself. I'm calling it #FridayPaintday.

Typically when I paint - and when I say paint I mean spread out on the floor with a big canvas and get messy kind of paint - it's in acrylic with an abstract approach, listening to dark music loudly. But I'm ready for anything. It's been so long since I painted regularly - I used to paint weekly and have art exhibits monthly - that I'll explore different mediums, combine them, try different canvases, textures and techniques, maybe even different styles of music. Because when I paint, it's a release of energy from within. Not a practice of emulation or realism, it's self-expression and therapy in a way. So whatever I'm feeling, experiencing and have buried within will be called out and turned into paint on canvas.

Watch the process unfold on instagram and keep a look out for future behind-the-scenes shots of me on floor painting and getting messy. To celebrate this #FridayPaintday, here's a watercolor wash for your desktop, laptop, tablet and phones. Have a great weekend!

DESKTOP ART / BEAUTIFUL

Beautiful-Wallpaper-Download In case you haven't noticed on my instagram feed, I love flowers. Any chance I get I photograph them, smell them, pick them and enjoy everything about them. The beauty of flowers captivates me.

But it's not just flowers that are beautiful to me. My clients bravery and courage when they take the leap and quit their day job is beautiful, my family and everything they do is beautiful, my husbands smile and kind heart is beautiful, my neighbors friendliness is beautiful, my back yard is beautiful, my students are beautiful and even the bad things can be beautiful.

So here's a wallpaper download that I created for myself (it's on my desktop right now) and for you to remind us that everything is beautiful. Happy Friday!

PS: Speaking of beautiful, this blog post by Shalmai, a very talented and sweet client of mine, was amazingly beautiful.

 

DESKTOP ART / EXCELLENCE

Aristotle Excellence Quote Wallpaper I'm dreaming of the West Coast today - this picture was taken last year when my husband and I were traveling up the California Coast - so I created a desktop wallpaper capturing dreamy landscapes, warmth and inspirational words.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle.
