Creativity Stirs

For the first time in a few weeks, I cracked out some art supplies. Below are a few photos of what I worked on. The first project was a vision board for the Autumn Equinox/Full moon. It’s a little late due to illness, but better late than never. It was extra nice that my sister was here. She did a piece of her own and helped me with the second project pictured, which is the start of a Journal 52 spread…week 11 Stars. The last photo is the start of another Journal 52 spread which I started before I got sick and haven’t finished yet…Week 10 Create for a Cause.

Journal 52 Week 6 ~ The Art of Love Letters

This particular, and rather messy entry was inspired by the “Immortal Beloved” letters of Ludwig Von Beethoven and the words written on the pages are taken from the third letter.

Though still in my bed, my thoughts go out to you my immortal beloved. Oh God why must one be parted from whom one so loves. Be calm- love me- today-yesterday. What tearful longings for you-you-you- my life- my all- farewell. Oh continue to love me- never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved. ~ Ludwig Von Beethoven



Journal 52 Week 4 ~ Building Characters

The week 4 prompt is to create a character for your art journal. My character is part angel, part pagan goddess. She is sweet, wild, loving, carefree, and yet she is so powerful that she isn’t to be trifled with. I guess you could say that she is a representation of all that I am and all that I aspire to be. This is still a work in progress. Below are two photos of the beginning stages…the sketch and the start of getting some color in it. Later on, I’ll be using watercolor, acrylic, and more ink to complete this entry. I’ll post again when it is finished, but wanted to share what I’ve got so far.
