Mermaid Monday-connecting with creativity, cleansing, emotions, psychic abilities and intuition, and nurturing.
I hope if you celebrate Thanksgiving that you had a wonderful holiday! It got so busy with cooking and gathering here that I decided to take a blog break for a few days. Hopefully, you were into your own thing so much that you didn’t miss me. 😉
Since “Gilmore Girls A Year in the Life” came out, it was a perfect time to cocoon myself in that world twice over the weekend and recover from the hubbub. Though I drew some and covered my notebook with washi tape, I didn’t get back into the studio until last night. It was great to chill out some, but I was very glad to be back in my sanctuary.
The beginnings of this art journal entry were posted last week. Initially, I thought I might fill the whole page with mandalas, but it was calling out for more color and I really missed paint! It felt like it really came alive for me once I added the alcohol ink and acrylic paint. The question, of course, is one always worth asking. Songs and a quiet voice answered me when I took a few moments to be still and sit with it. Here is an in progress video of it:
My 3 year old daughter saw the Angel from last week’s art journal entry and said full of awe, “that looks like a princess in a purple dress. It looks like it’s for me!” When I asked her if she wanted me to paint her more princesses, she replied without a doubt, “yes!” Well, there’s no greater motivation than that for me to paint some princesses!! This in progress fairy princess will be one of her Christmas gifts from me. ->>
Hopefully, I will be able to complete one for each of the kids, as well as a few other hand made items that I have in mind for them. A couple are already started, so that gives me reason to believe that it will happen.
