ART JOURNAL – WHY?

The bamboo was a copy of a painting I did, love how the quote works it's way around the painting

My practice of journal keeping has changed my life.  My journals are for sketching, keeping inspiration handy and playing with texture in an smaller format. This work has expanded my creativity in the larger projects of my life.

I also use journaling to create and refine my artistic vision.  When I have a spark of an idea. I jot it down in a journal, then doodle it and research it and expand it.  Sometimes that is enough. But those ideas that are worthy. They become in big paintings, creative endeavors and interesting happenings in my life.

LIVING JUNKIE!

I LOVE THRIFTING! Don’t you?  My favorite isles are the home goods.  I found this little owl and it was not too cute when I found it… it was brown, and not the good kind of brown!  So I started by spraying it with black paint, then added layers of acrylic & metallics over the surface!

I love hanging him up in the fall!

What is your fall decor? Are you a Junker?
