Sometimes, it's good to set aside time to just play with one's art supplies, and today was that day for me. I feel pretty confident creating with paper and glue and gesso and scissors and inks. But, paints, well, that is quite the different story. Paint just seems so permanent! Even unforgiving.
I have an artist friend who began her career by taking a figure from a magazine and painting over it--she swears that that is how she learned to paint! If it worked for her, why not me? Today, I found a rather simple ad in a magazine and immediately tore it out and adhered it to a loose journal page. I have yet to learn about shading, shadows and space, so what you see is just three colors of paint rubbing up against each other--but happily so.
I love using my word stamps to express myself, and think the one I used here is perfect since this lady appears to have an attitude, while at the same time appearing naked.
All this said, I can't take credit for the underlying element of the piece of art, but I can take credit for painting it!
Thanks for coming by today! I hope you will take a moment to leave a comment so that I will know you were here!
Joy to you!
