Doodling

I completed a two-page art journal spread Saturday.  The photos below show the evolution.  This started out with a splash of two base colors:  Fluorescent Orange and Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold.  After applying those, a bit of white was added.  

Then came outlined shapes, decorative elements (dots, lines, 't's, rock-like elements formed with small circles), and embellishments (with gold pen and glitter glue).  It's amazing how doodling can add to the drama of a piece!

A Little Art Journal Page


This page was created with acrylic paints, collaged papers, gold metallic pen, Posca Pens, and Stickles glitter glues. It was fun to see it come together and looks a bit like a fish to me.

Loneliness and Artists

This is an interesting article about loneliness and the fact that it is increasing across age groups and is being seen across the world.  After reading it, I started wondering...

Artists typically work alone to create their works (writers, composers, etc. too).  The article consequently suggests that we may have to work even harder to maintain a relevant community that surrrounds us -- so that art-making doesn't become an additional 'cause' for the experience of loneliness.
