You know how sometimes while flipping through a magazine you stumble upon an image or cool font and know that you need to cut it out for a future project? Well I cut out these glasses out of a magazine ad a long time ago loving how the images of the clouds were in black and white and so apparent. They seemed to tell a story all on their own. I took them out for every prompt ( wanted to use them so bad!) but they were just not working for me.... until now!
There were a few different paths I could have taken for this prompt, lots of ideas came to mind and so as I do with all my prompts I just start painting and see what the artwork essentially is saying to me at the end. I love starting the journal entries in this manner, because not having a preconceived idea of what you are going to do is freeing and it allows me to just be in the moment and see what comes out onto the paper. I'm very happy with what transpired in those moments of quiet contemplation .
I'm not entirely happy with how the colours turned out.... or didn't turn out ! My camera is not meant for these up close and personal shots so I'm going to start saving for a better camera! I'll just "continue on " with my saving!
