so i decided to use images of this raven. i kind of like the way i worked out- the right side started with black gesso, then traced with white gesso, gel pen and oil pastel. cut a window and put the photo behind. i finished it with gel medium. i like the repetition of color and shape.
the other side is printed on rice paper and the crow over the top is a transparency.
i wonder about how some of these other bloggers get all of the work done that they do. i want to paint- i need to, actually, have 2 commissions to do, and need to do the centerpieces. i want to explore the journaling piece- not just the art, but to be more thoughtful in using it to think things through.
ah well.... i'll do what i can. experimenting in the journal is freeing, and will inform art down the line.
now off to bed to get ready for next week.
