Art journal page
It will be ok.
Lots of color inspiration this week. I went a little wild with excess paints that I have been using on the wall going down to my art studio, on my art journal pages. This page started out with one direction in mind but ended up this way. The image of the rocker came from an old calendar and reminded me that sometimes it's best to slow down and that things will work out and it will all be ok.
I've been barraged with color that excites and inspires me. Here are some paint chips that literally came to me without my needing to choose them.
Really, I looked down and suddenly they were in my hands so you know I just had to pick up them in sample jars. And yesterday I was in my local quilt shop to purchase some fabric for a journal that is in the works and I couldn't resist these. It was love at first site. I adore color.
More inspiration has found it's way into my hands and heart through this amazing book; One Artist Journal by Orly Avineri.
There are not enough good words to describe this book.
If you love to journal, if you love to peek inside the heart of another artist then this book will make your heart go pitter patter. And even if visual journaling is not your thing, the book is well worth reading. Orly shares insights on life that anyone can embrace and grow from. I highly, highly recommend this book. It is available on Amazon but if you purchase it from Orly via her blog she gets a higher percentage of the sale.
So that is all I have for now. I am still plugging away on the stairs and wall with more tips and hints for painting big that I will share here but like all these bursts of color, I tend to follow the path that inspires me at the moment and confess to being distracted easily. Everything does get finished in it's own time and 'it will be ok' in the end.
