Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.
Paramahansa Yogananda

All through February I have been painting colorful hearts in my little notebook. I could probably continue for a while longer, because there is no end to the ways you can portray something that has meaning to you…

Painting Hearts - watch the time-lapse videos of all of these on my blog

Each time I sat down to doodle, draw, paint or splatter paint on the page I filmed the process in time-lapse mood. I have shared some of these already on instagram (where I’m iHannas if you want to follow along there), but I also saved each one and made a compilation video, showing all of them in chronological order.

I hope it will inspire you to bring out your colors. What you paint doesn’t have to be hearts, it can be anything. But allow your ideas to evolve for a while. Create a series of work, that comes from your heart.

Painting a lot of Hearts in February

Here’s the video. Enjoy!

If you can’t see the video above click this linke Time-lapse Painted HEARTS | February 2019 [Ep 3] to visit YouTube. And when you’re there give this video a thumbs-up, subscribe to my channel and leave a comment if you feel compelled to do so. I appreciate your efforts. :-)

You can also watch the introduction and the January time-lapse video, if you haven’t done so yet.

In January I created some abstract pages in this journal. This month, March, I’m experimenting with (mostly) selfies…

I am really enjoying this low-key project right now. Even though I’m filming each painting session, it’s no hassle to set it up as I have the tripod in place all the time. I don’t need to title, scan, edit and upload each page, like I did with the collage project last year. It takes a while to upload to instagram of course, but I don’t even have to do that. It’s just a bonus that I can do on days when I have the time. I love that!

What theme/subject matter would you pick if you were painting the same thing over and over again?

Take care.
