Making art in Moleskine journals

I am revisiting old journals and getting inspiration from my previous work. I've decided to start another moleskine journal and will post soon. The first step is to get the cover ready. I never start a piece of art on the first page. I start somewhere in the middle. I find that my work continues to grow and I hardly ever like the work I started on the first page. I'll post soon.
Have a great day!

Fall colors and new journal pages

I am experimenting in my journal these days. I'm not quite sure what the outcome is, but I am influenced by the magazine "Raw Vision" I finally got a subscription to it, as it is hard to find in the stores. I love it,,,but it's pricey, but well worth it if you like outsider art. This is my latest spread.

The fall is amazing here in Oregon. I am really enjoying it at my new home. I get more sunshine here than at my other house. I wish the colors could stay longer. Even the clouds are amazing here. My fireplace was cleaned today and I am ready for some wine and rainy days ahead.

When I was a small child I could beckon butterflies to come close and sit on my finger. I'm not sure they will come to me now, but they get really close. I love butterflies!

I'm back! I just listed and opened my shop again. I was inspired by a conversation my friend and I had about capturing butterflies when were children. 8 x 10 gallery wrapped canvas, acrylic

Re-occuring theme

I'll be posting some new work in my shop tomorrow or Friday. I was noticing a re-occuring theme in my work. Birds on my shoulder...hmmmm, I wonder what this means! Maybe they are spirit birds giving a message.....shhhh... you have to listen closely.
