New leaf

Turning over a new leaf...art journal page.


'Turning over a new leaf', art journal, mixed media


A crayoned face from my 'stache' drawer.  I collaged her onto this journal page in order to transition from journalling back over into paintings again.  I used a hydrangea leaf to put leaf prints on this page. I don't know what my new leaf will be.. but probably something to do with being positive in outlook....a kind of carry over from the journal 52 prompts these past 2 weeks.

I have been rather caught up in journalling, which is good to do- as it is experimental and permits play with various supplies- but I would now like to get back into making paintings for the wall.

We are having very mixed weather this summer.  Sometimes warm and sunny and in the same day, turning cold and wet, then blowy...  Good for staying indoors and painting!

Bye for now.

What a beautiful mixture of color, textures and feelings. Love the hydrangea leaves..and expression of the face and vibrant colors. Very thoughtful..wonder what she's thinking.

Your art is so individual, beautifully colourful with a kind of mystical quality to it. I always enjoy looking at what you've created. Your art for the wall must be lovely indeed. xx
