journal page – 5/17/08

…a quick break from big paintings to do another journal page. This one was inspired by Illustration Friday’s topic “wide,” and Inspire Me Thursday’s challenge to use crayons to make art. I made this with acrylics, Caran d’Ache Neocolor II artist’s crayons, and ink. And… two finished paintings.. finally!


– 24″ x 36″ x 1.5″ – acrylic & ink on wood panel


Vernal Spirit
– 18″ x 24″ x 1″ – acrylic & ink on wood panel

It’s all I have to bring today –
This, and my heart beside –
This, and my heart, and all the fields –
And all the meadows wide –
Be sure you count – should I forget
Some one the sum could tell –
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.

Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886)

Well, I also have great news! I am excited to announce an interview at my Wings 4 You Coaching blog with Susan Tuttle in celebration of her new book, Exhibition 36: A Gallery of Mixed-Media Inspiration . I am honored to have contributed a painting and article to her book, available for preorder prior to its release in November 2008. Please stop by and read about Susan’s inspiring creative journey!
