Today's Art Journal Page

My journal entry for January 15, 2011:

First, I looked for a face

and found her, with eyes wide open.

Then I gave her a dove,

so she could be at peace with what she saw.


Today I tore down a watercolor paper into 8" x 10" sheets. Then I painted washes on them. This one has a wash of Burnt Umber and Phthalo Blue. Isn't it amazing all the colors that can be created from mixing only two colors? I turned the paper around in all directions until I settled on this one. From this wash of paint I created the journal entry above using colored pencils.
