Hoping you are enjoying the prompts that Lynne at Open Heart Studios and I have come up with. I have been enjoying them! Day 3 was Inspired by Nature and I was drawn to creating a hawk. I’m so fortunate to live in a neighborhood where most days I see at least one hawk. I’m always thrilled to see them. They are gorgeous creatures and the colors of the red-shouldered hawk are so very striking!
Day 4 was harder for me! Everything Hearts was the prompt. I am not drawn to the typical heart symbol in my art. I love flowers and birds but hearts are not my thing! And pink is definitely NOT my thing.
I’ve been having some slight issues with an irregular heart rate the last few months so I am very conscious of my heart. This morning I had a slight episode and I thought WAIT – why not use a real heart rather than the symbol of a heart!
And so I attempted to sketch a heart – couldn’t help but add a few flowers to it either.
And somehow I ended up with a pink in there and I liked it.
After finishing the page I realized how much this had been influenced by a painting I have from The Motley Turtle Arts. Her use of color and the cool little scribblies in the corners came from that painting. I absolutely love her work.
Art journaling lets me explore without worry. I can splatter paint around and see what happens. I find it very relaxing each time I sit down. Hoping you can take the time for yourself too! And hoping you will share your creations on IG or FB. Don’t forget to use the #10dcac so we can find you!
