Journal page: Evening Stars



Another journal page that began as a doodle – this is usually what happens – I make a sketch or a doodle and leave it alone for awhile, then I go back to it and doodle some more.  This page already had a background of gesso and acrylic, but it was very pale.  I was just playing with paint when the three figures began to emerge.  They have something to say, but I am not sure what it is, the words:  “It’s really more important than you may realize,”  came in with the junk mail, and the leftover wrappers just seemed to need a place to be stuck.  I pasted a receipt from a couple of years ago in the window, it was from a place I stayed at the beach – called Alsea Evening Star – I don’t think you can still see that, but I know its there.  Perhaps the figures are evening stars just waiting to shine.  I used gesso, acrylic, graphite, soft pastel, and gouache.

  1. Hi Mary Ann – I find it so mysterious the way these faces emerge – almost as if they were already there just waiting for me to find them. Thank you for stopping by!

    Nice to meet you Victoria – Thanks for visiting – I’ve visited your blog many times!

  2. I am not surprised you find it hard to create when you are working long hours and it’s still winter. I am sure with the increasing daylight and warmth you will find your creative energy levels will rise.

    Your work is full of mystery and atmosphere, always intriguing, never mundane.

Tell me about it...
