Joy of Art – 03

This is the official first week of Life Book 2019  or at least my interpretation of it. 

I had to try this one twice. In the first version, the face was too small which made it too hard to color. So instead of giving up or continuing with what wasn’t working, I just went to the next page and tried it all over again. 

Grateful that I did. I don’t love this but I am much happier with it and it was wonderful to get to play with watercolors.

Onward.

Joy of Art – 02

One of my goals this year is to bring back the practice of making art regularly. Ideally I’d do this more than once a week but if I end the year with 52 pieces of art, I will be super glad. 

To help with this goal, I am taking several classes so fae:

  1. Life Book 2019  Easiest way to bring back art for 2019.
  2. Perspective class by Olga this class was free.
  3. Alisa Burke’s yearlong art journaling class.

The work I share here will start with these and if I am lucky it will spread out to more. So we’ll see.

This week’s art is inspired by Tam’s warm up in Lifebook week 1. This piece has nothing to do with the piece she created but it’s how I wanted to warm up. 

I can sit here and criticize every piece of this but I am surrendering and letting it go because the goal is not to create perfect art. It’s just to make more art and I have to start somewhere. So here it goes.
