may you have a life filled with happiness...
playing round with inks on these pages and the ghost technique of using masks with water..I used the inside of a graze box to make ghostly boxes in the ink. The frames are filled with various images under a transparency...the journalling reads "may you have a life filled with happiness and acceptance for who you are and what you are to become"..dedicated to my son.
Looking through The 20th century art book I came across "abstract head" by Jawlensky. Jawlensky believed that "colour was a means of appealing to the soul arguing that painting could be a visual music...he developed this idea into a series of works called songs without words".
I really like Jawlensky's use of colour and lines so had a quick play with pastels and this is my interpretation called"lines, curve and shade"...bit of fun. I had some happy news yesterday as I won some art goodies from the milliande journal prompts I took part in over january...its a great site why not check it out?
