Art Journal #41

Posted in Art Journal, Main at 11:12 pm by carrie

You know how an old book makes a “creaking” noise when you open it because the spine hasn’t been stretched in years and years? Well, that’s the sound my art journal made when I picked it up this evening… it’s been way too long.

I’m thinking I’ll paint an entire series of cottages now :)

And here’s a piece I started back in 2003-2004… just finished it tonight (not sure I like it, though)… but it was a cute idea…

I found inspiration in the art of Mary Blair for the top painting, and the barn painting came from an old album cover, but I can’t remember which? I seem to recall the artist was Shag‘s inspiration. If you want to explore new ways of doing art (music etc), you could read about your favorite artist and find out who inspired them, and work all the way back… and it’s fun to do the research, too :)
