Art Journal

Even as the rune for the month predicted blessings & direction, I've been "moved" to return to my roots of art. Way back to the dreams of my childhood...drawing, painting...BEING an artist. I've left some of my techniques by the wayside in order to either make a living or be involved in a project. Some had to do with me, some didn't. But now is the time.

So I'm starting by getting back to my art journals, sketching, watercolor painting, color pencil paintings, etc. There are things I want to capture! Ideas to express that have been moodling in me. Now is the time.

You may be seeing more of this in the future. And hopefully bigger & better works of my heart art!

In this small spread, I started with a sketch of my travelling watercolor kit as a return to my roots. And on the next page, my happiness in the election outcome as an expression of my current joy. I hope to show the energy I see everywhere...in everything. Wow. Big dreams! :) Wish me well!

Thanks! It's just sketches in a plain moleskine...ideas to get me going. But it sure is nice to get back to it!

CC! I can't wait to see more of your art - I so enjoy it all.

Thanks! I hope to get more sketching done so I can get up the courage to do some bigger paintings! It's been awhile! There's so much I want to experience with this new direction! And I really feel guided. That helps counter the inner critic! ;)

Hi, Robin!
Yep, it is good to get back! I did my first "energy" sketch/painting today. It was really fun to paint what I saw & felt about/in an object, not just the object! I like this direction!
Blessings,
