I woke up to find the sky outside gray and a bit hazy morning.
I smiled, turned on the heat, poured me a cup of coffee and headed for my atelier… and that’s where I will spend my day! Of course I took a photo of my work desk first thing, as it is Wednesday. Wednesdays are ‘woyww-days.’
Over the last weeks I noticed that my art journaling style is becoming looser, more free, more intuitive, more raw… it somehow started while I worked on a canvas (see this post) and that way of working continued in my journals. Here’s my latest spread in my journal “De Zeeuwse Ziel” (“Soul from Zeeland”)
My friend Lena gave me golden, copper and silver paint for my birthday. It was my wish to complete my collection of acrylics with those colors but Lena did not know that. How awesome is it when friends just seem to ‘feel’ what makes you happy! This art journal spread shows a little bit of gold and copper spots. Not too much (the ‘copper colors’ on this spread are mostly burnt sienna) because the paint is metallic and shiny, but by adding just a bit here and there I gave this page the finishing touch. I’m very pleased with this piece ánd with the paint, thank you Lena!
I have my radio on, I have my materials on the desk, I poured me another cup of coffee and despite the gray weather: it is going to be a beautiful day! Enjoy yours!
