Women in Medieval art.

Journal page.

 'Medieval women artists', journal page, approx., 7 by 9 ins.

 Susie fancies a spot of journalling.   Picking a brush to use.

Back to being a cat.  The cat sat on the mat.

My art.

I did the page spread shown above, carrying on with the Medieval art theme, and adding a women in art theme.

It started out with no particular theme in mind, just as a background page.  I added some Brusho colour and spritzed it with water.  Then added some old texture paste found in the bottom of a pot.  I pressed the paste through stencils to get some raised patterns.  Then used some inktense blocks for more colour.

I searched for some imagery to collage on the page and found a Medieval art picture which shows a female artist at work on a portrait of the Madonna and child.  I added some animals around her, as Medieval tapestries and book art often include nature imagery, and so the page was finished.

Susie's news.

Susie loves the art room and looks like she'd love to do some painting, pawing brushes and so forth.

She also loves to play catch, or fetch-it, like a puppy!  If you throw a toy, she will run after it, pick it up in her  mouth and bring it right back and drop it for you throw again.

Hope you are having a great week.  We are having lovely sunny days.

Bye for now.

June and Susie.

A gorgeous art journal work, June.
Susie is a lovely artist, too 😋 and talented in many ways. I can imagine how fun she is playing with things.
Have a nice time my friends 💕
