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.
Lovely. These faces are very beautiful and haunting to me.
Hello there, I am really enjoying your blog, love the journal pages, and your grandson’s collage is great……love the fairy houses too!
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!
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.
I totally understand about images appearing or as I often say revealing themselves.
I agree with Acornmoon…keep creating! 🙂
Gypsy, I knew you would completely understand about images revealing themselves!
