I have been busy! I have several new pieces to share with you today! For the past week I have been busy making handmade journals. To learn more about my journals, read through to the bottom of this post.
I just finished a darling painting called “Afternoon Delight”. This acrylic painting in on cradled canvas and is 18 x 24 inches. This darling fox makes me smile every time I look at her. “Afternoon Delight” is available for sale.
I was lucky enough to be commissioned to make art for two incredible local boys. Here are the finished pieces.

And last, but not least, here are a few pics of the journals I have been making!
April 13 2015The journals are hand made, hand bound and have a heavy 70lb paper that is perfect for art journaling. I have hand painted the canvas covers and each journal has 100 pages. I make these journals because they are what I use. The way the pages are bound and the protective flap keep my pages nicely, even when they are thick with paint and ephemera. I will have the journals available for sale in the next 24 hours, keep watching!
Last night I did manage to get the beginnings of an art journal page started. I am trying to get myself back on an early morning schedule so that I have a fresh brain for art and blogging. Today I did dragged myself out of bed bright and early and I painted in a sketch I had done last night and will add it to the journal page later. But first, my work area is an absolute disaster and I desperately need to get it cleaned up before I get Andrew on the go and get ready work.
Weather permitting, I will start digging up my garden area tonight after work. Right now we just have a wee little patch and I would like to quadruple our garden this year. I can not wait for fresh zucchini, peas and carrots. Yum.
Below are a couple of shots of my new journal page in progress. (And a lovely lake shot I took Saturday evening at Parker Lake) I have many delicious layers of paint that I have stencilled, brayed, painted, washed and dripped on to the page. It has been a long while since I did a “girlie” sketch, I am not quite sure where the page will go but that, after all, is half the fun of visual journaling for me. I love to get lost in what I am doing and just go with it.
