she felt she had lost her way journal page



Today I met up with my old college friend Louise who is an animal artist..check out her fabulous art on her new blog here. We went to Warrington gallery and saw some excellent paper sculptures made from old books and some very architectural paintings influenced by Italy. I quickly did this journal page based on what I saw today at the gallery with a quick sketch of an arch with charcoal over a scraped painted background..have added some collagey layers made from altered magazine pages. I also bought some lovely pottery from a gallery shop that was having a sale..particularly like the raku inspired little dish.

Hey Lorraine, you clearly got straight to it! It was an inspiring day and I'm going to have to experiment with backgrounds too. See you next time.
