Revisiting Week 1 of Wild and Free class by Juliette Crane

My first attempt at the week 1 class went totally in a different direction. This one looks a little more like what Juliette was actually demonstrating.  I seem to get carried away wanting to do my own thing. :-)

Digital Abstract

I wonder if that's what the inside of my mind looks like?

Art Journal Caravan Week 20 - Imagine

Do You Love Macarons?

No, they aren't macaroons. Macarons are French and are totally different. I love them! :-)

It's Great To Be Called An Artist

The painting I did for Soul Art Day is now officially in the online art gallery. It's so nice to be included in "a group of artists." It's difficult for me to call myself an artist even though I've created art my entire life. Such a deal!

Soul Art Day 2016 (May 11)

This was the first year I participated in Soul Art Day. Here is the link to the web site so you may read all about it if you would like to. Laura Hollick sponsors the event, and people all over the world participate. Laura and several other artists participated in a live performance art piece that we were able to watch online called "Painting The Suit." The main idea of the event was for every artist to feel inspired knowing that thousands of artists worldwide would be creating art at the same time. I wasn't able to finish my piece on that day, as it took time to watch the online events that were taking place. This is what I finished on the first day.

I drew around my arm to serve as the starting point. Many artists had very large canvases and a partner so their partner could trace around their entire body to serve as their painting's beginning.

I finished my painting the next day. The energy from the previous day definitely carried over. You aren't able to tell from the photo of the painting, but each of the leaves is a picture from screenshots I took while Laura and her group were performing her "Painting The Suit" piece. I tinted them in Photoshop, printed them and then cut them into leaves. This was my first Soul Art Day. It was all very exciting!

The painting is 2' by 3'. Below is a closeup of one of the leaves.

I definitely plan on participating next year! I'll add a photo of Laura Hollick so you may see how inspirational she is.

Lesson One - Wild and Free Painting

Nope, this isn't anything like what we were suppose to try and do for lesson one. It's definitely wild and free, but . . .

I guess I'll have to go back and try again!
