USE. PRACTICE. CREATE.
ART JOURNAL EVERY DAY
ALL of these are linked. There is the obvious connection of ART. But there is also the connection in that they have different focuses which really lead back to the same thing. My WELLNESS. I don't have any illnesses, mental or physical, but I am not as WELL as I would like to be. Not as WELL as I SHOULD be. This is something that most of us have in common.
I have all of these sites linked on my side bar.
Go check them out. You'll feel at home. I just know it.
I am not an artist. But I love creating. I love playing with paint, even though I know nothing of color balance or theory or any of that stuff. I'm learning as I go. No stress. Just fun.
My education is in Mechanical Engineering. It's very structured and there is little room for deviation. So sometimes it is really hard for me to create because I am not a natural artist and my works
I have been having FUN making backgrounds in my Art Journal. This bottom one is my favorite one. I started out with something I really didn't like at all. And kept adding paint. I kept adding more layers because I didn't like what I had. UNTIL I tried to cover it up. I had a slurry of Gesso and water from another page and decided to use it on this page too. I didn't have anything to lose, since I didn't like it. The result surprised me. I LOVE it now. See? FUN!!!
Feel free to use these in your works. I don't mind. I'd love to see what you do with them if you do. So let me know...
