On a more fun note, I decided I needed a bit more time off and I started an art journal for the fun of it. I never make art for myself. It's always for work or for a trade or for some course I'm taking. I think the last thing I painted just for fun was a couple of years back. Way too long. So I decided this would be the summer of art journaling.
I made my own 8" x 11" journal and stuck in some nice Bristol board and some cool Stongehenge drawing paper (which I proceeded to paint on), stuck it all together with a pamphlet stitch and boom- one hand made journal with a small number of pages so I can actually complete it.
Above is a double spread... pretty girls, my fave thing to paint. And below are a couple of pages about giddy excitement (new journal!) and fave imaginary creatures.
