sidewalk reflection of mimosa trees)

ART JOURNAL FRIDAY

 These PAINTINGS were through the week in a larger journal...
 
 
 
 
 I did a lot of testing..
trying different color combos and leaving most of the under layers showing...
 
 
 
 
 a lot of EXPERIMENTING...
here I was trying to see how micaceous iron oxide
would accept paint, I didn't like it at all..
 
.
 
 
 
 
 this was with some collage, paint and
 
 
 
 
 drips...
this is what is so wonderful about doing smaller paintings in our journals...
I didn't care for this one either,
but learned MUCHO...
that's the point!
 
 
 
 
 this was complete PLAY once again ;)
 
 
 
 
 this was standing way back from the paper and
closing my eyes and squiggling with ink with a stick,
and then...
 
 
 
 
 opening my eyes and filling them in...
PURE FUN and
also LEARNING!
 
 
 
 
are you ready for the WEEK END?
WE ARE over here!
it's when we STAY HOME while there are gobs
of people roaming the towns.
 
HAVE A CREATIVE WEEKEND MY FRIENDS!
OXOX

INSPIRATION WEDNESDAY in all languages...

 an ALMOST finished piece...
still with the grays and having so much fun
with trying out new things,
yet bringing together what I've been learning
along the way
 
 
 
 
 in my journal last night...
 
 
 
 
 "ART SAVES"
 
 
 
 
 an ACTUAL finished piece...
although, it hasn't left home base yet so....;)
the irregular flower pot is piece of fabric
 
 
 
 little positive messages are written on the orange lines,
ever so fun!
 
 
 
 
 next up...
 
 
 
 
 these are sections of an FINISHED cupboard door...
 
 
 
 
 that I can't divulge until I have entered it for
a spot in one of my favorite galleries...
 
 
 
 
 the side of another unfinished...
 
 
 
 
a portion of a FINISHED piece
 
 
 
HONESTLY i FINISHED a lot of paintings just yesterday, including,
painting the backs and sides so that they are presentable to hang ;)
but just not ready to divulge them all...they are all downstairs ready for my husband
to fix proper gallery hung backs ;)
 
 
~ STAY INSPIRED ~ 
any way you can make that happen!


THANK YOU

my little INSPIRATION WEDNESDAY...

 one fine day I painted about 40 different substrates gray that I had left over from a project...
 
 
 
 
 so these little grey backgrounds turned into...
 
 
 
 
 little face and collage pieces...
 
 
 
 
 I was feeling most ADVENTURSOME...
 
 
 
 
 and painted them with INDIA INK using a SKEWER...
VERY FUN yet a bit tricky!
 
 
 
 
 utter PLAYTIME and FREEDOM in one of my journals ;)
 
 
 
 
 here is where some more of that gray paint went...
I am going to do a little more work on them...
gift bags and boxes again...
such FUN!
 
 
 
 
 a couple of,
 
 
 
 
GORGEOUS sunsets!
 
 
I hope you find a little MAGIC in every day!
