This is the journal page I did today. I decided instead of Misty's idea of doing pages in the style of our favorite artists I would do my own thing. She was very spontaneous and I enjoyed painting her. The background had been previously done and it wasn't like she was found art or anything like that. I had already done the bird transfer and just built the page around that. With my excess paint I started a few other things but they are only in the beginning stages.
I bought a new planner for the year and surely I can't keep it black. Currently I am gessoing the covers before adding paint and paper and who knows what else. Pictures will follow in a day or two. Last year I used the same style planner and I found I got more things done if I wrote them in like appointments. So that is my plan once again.
I have been having some kind of stomach issue the last 2 nights so I haven't had the energy to do much Art. A friend suggested that I may need some yogurt that perhaps I need some good bacteria in there. I think she may be right, I love it when friends can see a solution and you can not.
I wanted to go out for an adventure with Flynn but just didn't feel up to it. I am headed to the men's shelter for my monthly date to cook dinner. Sometimes it feels good to be doing something for someone else, it helps put your own life in perspective.
I hope you are having an artful day.
