Back to basics...

Just pencils, some water and a brush, some security envelope and I am back to basics in my sketchbook.  This I can do and feel great about...I love pencils of all kinds and glue and papers!  What more can one ask for?  Well, maybe win the lotto so I can move and have a large studio space, then what more can I ask for?  : D!

These are a couple of things I am working on this Saturday afternoon...

The top one is just playing, ink spritzing, doodling, drawing in a journal.

The second is a wip with collage and so far gesso, an old photo, and more to come.

Playing with shipping tape and magazine gaga..

Here is magazine photo of Lady Gaga.

I applied clear shipping tape strips over her face, (eyes, nose, mouth).  I am sure you know the technique, it has been around for quite awhile.  I then spritzed the back of the page with water and started rubbing away.  I only rubbed a small area just to see what effects I could get.  Here they are with different backgrounds.

This was a lot of fun...have to do more.  It is like she is emerging!  Isn't Lady Gaga pretty without makeup?

There is nothing more satisfying than playing in my art journal!

This is so much more satisfying for me than that darn mixed media painting I have been working on and previously posted.  I am so much more comfortable in my journal and with drawing rather than painting.  I have since changed that painting and will pick it up again at some point in the future and see what I can come up with.  In the meantime drawing in my journal feels like taking a sedative or a nice tall margarita!  In my opinion anyway! :D

Well, it is coming along or NOT! (LA VIE EN ROSE)

I am just not into painting this but continue.  I may just do some more and put it away for a long time and then get back to it!  I don't know why I can't get out of this creative bog!  Ok, maybe some journaling.

Here it is again with ink Vintage Distress Ink stain!  A little better maybe...

In my room...

You know that Beach Boy's song, In My Room...that kept rolling in my head as I was taking the picture of this canvas.  It is a WIP.  I am feeling uninspired still but I want to draw and try to paint even though I feel this way.  Maybe a spark will ignite (yay)!

This is a 16" x 20" wrapped canvas.  It is a painting over collaged cloth, old text and music sheets.  I saw a photo of Meryl Streep taken from The French Lieutenant's Woman.  I have always loved that movie!  I was playing around with my camera and somehow got that date in there, the date isn't even right.  Now I have to figure out how to get it out!  I have no idea where my camera operations booklet is!

The moment waits for you....
