ART JOURNAL FRIDAY

 in my journal, on this particular one...I tried to stick to only 2-3 colors
 
 
 
 
 I really enjoyed it and just let go at times and then left for a meal...
 
 
 
 
 and then started noodling the faces too much...
and that's okay,,,i learn so much
from painting and gluing in these books...
SO MUCH comes out of us when we just let it flow and/or take some jaunts elsewhere with brush, paint and heart...
 
 
 
 
 I am just now finding out,
HOW EDUCATIONAL
FUN
FREEING
REVELATIONS
NEW EXPERIENCES
ELATION (with frustration)
putting it down with no
GRAND EXPECTATIONS
 
 
 
 
 A start in my journal of playing with pretty colors,
seeing where my inspiration would wander...
 
 
 
 
 picked up a charcoal stick and an ANGEL came into view...
I wanted it to just flow with simplicity and clarity...
and I lucked out...she is quite simplistic
I even tackled a palette painted flower,
INSPIRED BY...
my friend http://katherinjeannewood. has just finished with a 30 day series on the subject, and I adore her work.
it was so new and fun...I shall attempt more flowers this way.
thank YOU Katie!
 
 
 
 
 this portion of "LOVE" is from one of my monoprints (copied and color changed)
exciting to me!!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 I did this just before retiring last evening
 
 
 
 
 they are 2 different pages...
 
 
 
 
 side by side in a different journal I sewed up this week.
they will be a start for this morning's journey ;)
I am so excited about them too!
 
 
 
 
and I just finished this yesterday for one of my nieces..
she just rented a new apartment for she and her son, and
I will be surprising her with it when it's framed.
yes...I'm excited about that too ;)
 
HAVE A VUNDER FILLED WEEKEND
MY FRIENDS!

  1. WOW. Wanda the Wandering Artist....you know that you have taught me so much? Though I don't paint with brushes and colors, I want to paint with WORDS. And like you have said and have demonstrated, it takes the courage to PLAY and through frustration, EXPLORE and experiment. I liken this to good writing habit that will eventually produce a satisfying piece. Oh Wanda, this is so rich for me. Beautiful colors, beautiful expression that can only come from courageously exploring. MUCH LOVE! ANita

  3. I wish I could be as free as you, I am so boxed in - in in a box - not even a peep hole in this stupid box - can you imagine? Ahhhh no sledge hammer in this box either... :-)

  4. I LOVE when that happens..you're painting along, and then all of a sudden, bam! Something forms in front of your eyes, and suddenly the whole story and path you're taking changes. :) I really love these new pieces, Wanda. So happy that I inspired you..THIS is exactly how one should be inspired. You might have been thinking of me, but you definitely made it your own. xo Love you, girly!! xo I'm so glad you're having fun. :)))))
