Well I finished up this journal. When I first started using it I like the paper but then I began to use more water media and the paper just didn't hold up anymore. There are other journals with better paper that I like a whole lot more. So I am happy to put it to rest. Here are the last pages.
In the Forest.
My take on a whimsical elephant. i love painting elephants, love bringing them to life and hopefully garner some wisdom from them. I always think of Ganesha, the Hindu god, the remover of obstacles. I know we can all use that help.
I so love drumming. Its like the beat calls me back to some primal connection. Lots of gelli plate printed papers in there.
This is a magazine image that I first covered in clear gesso and then painted over in acrylic. I had not done this technique in a long time. If you are interested in painting faces this is a great way to start. The clear gesso leaves a gritty surface that takes paint really well.
I am calling this one "Under the Blue Moon" I have been trying to paint under the full moon and the new moon every month. I wonder when the next blue moon is. I'll have to look that up.
