Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments! It is so encouraging to have your positive feedback! It's no secret that I've been having some challenges with my health and riding that ol' emotional rollercoaster and I want you to know how much it means to me that you are following my bumblings in my tiny studio. It has become such a joy for me to have this little studio, this haven to create in and I love sharing it with you!
I've been working on a little mixed media canvas and it's been slow going. Not sure why. I think it's 'cuz I really want to be working on my big Goddess canvas that will be our first lesson in Tam's (Willowing) new class, "Mythical Magical Makings"!
Here is sneak peek of the little canvas...
I've got a ways to go. Working in acrylic only is a bit more challenging than the watercolor!
O.K., back to "Mythical Magical Makings"! Kick-off will be January 17th. The first two weeks envolve creating a large mixed media painting of a Goddess with the inspiration of Klimt. Of course, rebel that I am, I'm already planning a few changes so that I can hang her in my living room! The canvas size was to be 24 x 36 which I found a bit daunting (to say the least). So I chose a 24 x 30 instead. After all, I have a smaller cottage and I want it to work well with my decor. Now I just have to find my easel and I'll be ready to roll.
Also in my studio art kick-off, Traci Bautista is running a daily challenge on her blog, "Art Journaling Daily". I've included a button on my sidebar if you'd like to check it out. I always find Traci's journal prompts to be fun and freeing - anything goes!
In the coming weeks I will be sharing my journey through "Mystical Magical Makings" (M3) with you along with some colorful, freeing and open journaling inspired by Traci B.
Music in the studio this week so far is: Blondie's Greatest Hits. Oooh, ooh, ooh, ahhhh... I have a feeling that Lady Gaga is next for the spin!
Let's kick-off 2011 in a artful blast of creativity!
Forever in art, Jessica
