Did a few art journal pages in the last 24 hours that seem to have visitors from a strange land in them.
This one started with a big green ink blob on the left hand side of the page…
I added the blue background, then took out that great star burst stencil and added the bright yellow and orange burst that looks like it is coming from behind his head.
Off to the computer to google an “alien” quote and what should I find ?
I wonder if when he wrote this line was back 500 years before Christ if he had any idea that it would still be used some 2500 years later ?
I am not sure what this visitor is all about, but I sure do like the looks of him.
He is welcome to stay awhile and share his story, even if it is a tragedy…
The next visitor is this Picasso/Matisse/I don’t know-who-else-inspired chick who appeared
right after I had read a Rumi quote left to me in a gift from my pal Kim, The Bodhi Chicklet.
The quote read “We rarely hear the inward music but we are all dancing to it never the less.”
I did the background first – playing with pinks and pastels.
A little unusual for me.
Then I needed a dancer of some kind…
Struggled with that for a long while, shifting through stacks of images and drawing, etc…
I finally drew the body in the same pose as a magazine dancer holding a parasol.
Some painting and pen work later, here was my muscular chick.
I think her name is Francesca.
A name meaning “free-spirit”.
I think Francesca is an unusual character but I do know that she came to remind me
to listen to that inward music a little more.
To turn up the volume if you will.
I am going do that.
You could to.
This song is a fun one to boogie too if you wanna join me…
Mika is a strange creature too, so it kind of all fits !
I hope your Wednesday has you turning up that inner music and feeling like a free-spirit, Beautiful Ones !
Big Love !
(A little reminder that yours truly is featured on Connie’s 30 Journals 30 Day project tomorrow ! Yay !)
