Process : Art Journal pages

Don’t you love it when artists share their processes, and the ways a painting gets started to where it ends up? I am a big fan of layers. I will be working on at least 5-6 paintings at once, all at different stages. That way, there is always something new to work on, my layers have time to dry before I start the next one, and if I don’t like something I did, I can cover it up with the next layer.

Here is the next in my series, showing how my paintings grow from their beginnings, through their ‘rough’ phase, and to the finished painting. This is a page from my Art Journal. I don’t often play around in my art journal, as I sometimes get stuck n the notion of “What if I like the end product too much and then can’t tear it out of the journal because there will be another painting on the back!”. I know, it sounds silly, but I do like just playing around on the canvas instead.

Anyway, so this one I started with a Rorschach test. I am not sure what you see, but I saw two blobby people with surprised looks on their faces when they realized they were looking at their mirror images. I let that dry, and then added some collage, mainly to one side. Some of that collage is made of the paper towels that I used to clean up my paint spills – reuse and recycle! I then added a layer of green wax and tried painting on top of that, but mainly got water marks. So, I let it all dry and added some more bright colors on top.

New Products

I have updated my Society6 shop with more products, so there is a larger selection of interesting gifts for you or someone you love. My main focus is Home Décor, travel accessories, and stationery, and if I do say so myself, the products look fabulous with my abstract artwork printed on them. You can still order prints and framed prints as well. Treat yourself!
