Illustration Friday: Path


Hmmm, I guess he doesn't like other dogs, especially poodles!
This is my entry for Illustration Friday this week, for the word path.

Thanks for stopping by!

Illustration Friday: Jagged

Phyllis.
Jagged on the outside here and there.
A regular mush-pile on the inside.
And she grants wishes. For real


"jagged"

Illustration Friday: Passion


Her heart constantly fluttered like a swarm of butterflies because of her passion for life.

Illustration Friday: Silence


This week's word is silence.
I had to use one of my favorites as it fits so well.
Happy weekend everyone!

Illustration Friday : Journey



It's been forever since I've posted. I'm going to try to show up once a week via IllustrationFriday and get back into the groove!

This painting lives with my dear friend in the Netherlands and it's my choice to represent this week's word:Journey.

Intuitive Collaging

I have been mentoring my friend's daughter as she is making her way to Massachusetts College of Art so she can become an art therapist. One thing she loves doing is making intuitive collages with me.
The idea isn't to make a pretty picture, but rather select images, colors and patterns that resonate with your feelings on a gut level, put them together and see what story they tell.
These are my two from last night.

This top one speaks to me in a couple of different ways. One about evolution, and perhaps the other about ancestry or the circle of life.



  
This second one tells me that this person is clearly at a crossroads in his life. His posture may appear that all things seems lost or impossible, but the symbol of the bird with outstretched wings is a sign of hope, as well as the "all-knowing" eye in the sky. The building can mean a place or safety and respite, or even a church. This one really pulled me in as I created it.

It's so good to be back on the blogs! I hope to make at least weekly posts again.
Thanks for stopping by♥

Angel Update

For my friends who aren't on Facebook and wanted a visual update on my angel painting.

The top photo is the beginning, the middle photo is where I am at this point. I still have a ways to go! Lots and lots of layers and glazings, but she's finally emerging and coming to life.
The last photo shows the lacy texture I'm trying to add to her wings here and there with stencils.

More to come!

xoxo
