Another Layering Experiment

This is another great idea from Grow Creative-- just layering the paint around a central object. I ended up having to darken my paint color by adding black because I wasn't adding any depth with the purple I was using-- it may also be the crappy paper I was using.

It's a little sloppy. I wish I would have been more patient and taken the time to paint each layer carefully. I also splattered on some white paint with my toothbrush, just because. This may be a good project to try some gold leaf on or something...just a thought.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.

Art Journal: Dandelions

dandelion doodle:

This doodle was inspired by a dandelion I saw growing in the middle of a bunch of rocks. I was going to the hospital to visit my grandmother with my mom. On our way in, I saw the dandelion and asked my mom if she thought I should pick it for my grandma, as a joke, of course. She didn't think it was very funny, so I left the dandelion where it was.

I don't mind dandelions. I like the name and they're like little balls of sunshine. Plus, they give you wishes. It's hard for me to call them weeds.
