Journal Pages to Share

Back in January, I mentioned joining the Art Journal Caravan (see this post).  This is proving to be a lot of fun, and I am learning a lot.  I’m also spending a lot of time working in my graphics software.  I thought maybe you would like to see some of the pages I’ve created.

These are all from February.  Our “muse” for the month was well-known artists and I really enjoyed studying the artists Manet, Klee, and Picasso – among others.  I’ve forgotten most of the Art History I studied in college, so researching each artist’s work, quotes, and biography was very interesting.  Picasso is still one of my favorites and I tried a portrait of my dog in Picasso’s style . . . or maybe I should call it a PUGcasso!

This month the theme is “Imagination.”  And what fun it is proving to be!  I still have lots of ideas so I may continue this theme into the next one.  Reality can be so boring, so of course the one above is one of my favorite quotes. 

Another one is “Growing old may be mandatory, but growing UP is optional.”

You Know It’s Time To Clean . . .


. . . when the cutting table is too cluttered to cut on!


Ah – that’s better! 

I didn’t really mean to go AWOL for so long.  I just got really busy – as you could probably tell from the first picture!  There are numerous projects in various stages of incompleteness.  But no pictures for some reason! 

I really need to take a few pictures so you can see what I’ve been up to.  Hmmm.  Maybe I should charge the camera battery first!
