New page in my art journal done with Caran d'Arch Neocolor IIs and pencil...just didn't want to pull out all my acrylics and stuff, so I decided to see what I could do with just the artist painting crayons. Still in progress, but almost done...just need to add some words/quote, I think. This page is about keeping your eyes on your dreams....to never stop dreaming and continuing to move forward towards your dreams. This is a theme that keeps reoccurring in my work....guess it's something that I need to keep reminding myself of when the pressures of day to day life get to me. I need to remember to not let anything push those dreams down....I need to keep stiring them up, keep growing and learning, and to quote a line from one my son's favorite movies right now "keep moving forward" (from "Meet The Robinsons").
I've been in the mood to do some really fun girly art (been loving what Marla and Jenn have been up to lately) and my art journal is the perfect place to play with new ideas. I'm really just a kid at heart....still love to watch cartoons and color in coloring books...good thing since I have a little boy who loves these things right now as well. :)
I'm thinking that this might be something that would be perfect for a little girls room (or someone who loves fun and sweet girly art like me)...what do y'all think? Is this something you'd like to see me add to my art offerings? Each would have stories behind them, like my other paintings...a story about what inspired the painting. I'd love to hear what you think. You can either leave a comment here or email me. :)
P.S. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is video day, so don't forget to check back in sometime tomorrow afternoon for episode three of my new series. Oh and I found a wonderful mixed media challenge website that this journal page was perfect for today....check out Mixed Media Monday. :D xo
