A journal born from the advertisement brochures, in this case it was a gold jewelry store booklet that was just waiting for my art to be unleashed on it!
I say 'unleashed' because I just let myself go...went wild and just let the intuitive, or whatever part of the brain it is that allows one to paint fearlessly, take me on a fun ride!
Doubtlessly, there was a color explosion and layers and layers of color built up. I just let loose brushwork and wild lines drawn and drawn over again, (which I did not bother to paint in any methodical way), do the work for me.
I was looking at the colorful paintings of Jean Michael Basquiat and abstract expressionists, maybe that was the subconscious inspiration going on in my head.
Here are a few pictures...
And this page done with the SOC colors- aqua, yellow and pink
|What my junk journal emerged from...|
On my journey with color , this is a work in progress and I hope it is interesting for you, my dear readers. On a last note, do you find any connecting theme in these paintings? Your unique viewpoint is what I would love to know.
Please do check in on Summer of Color - beautiful and fun arty event hosted by Kristin and also, the highly creative people over at,
