The words written in ink are inspired by the book Mother Peace from which I was reading earlier that morning about The Fool.
The models are magazine clippings sent to me by Hillary Rain. I covered their faces with M's to symbolize them going MAD. The yellow circles are made with oil pastels and reveal their inner light.
I loved finding the word PARTY on the page and crossed out the unnecessary word - democratic.
Color study cut out of Elle Magazine. I've taken to adding some compelling #secretmessage magazine cut-outs to my color study pages. On this page I added, "Transform today."
Art inspiration: Basquiat and Jeanette Winterson's Art [Objects].
I ended up turning in my library copy of Art [Objects] and purchasing the book for my very own. I don't do this with very many books, but this one had a plethora of rabbit trails I still wanted to peruse in my good ol' time.
Jeanette Winterson makes a fascinating exploration of autobiography vs. fiction, and my imagination loves playing around with the possibilities of both/and. I captured some of my scattered thinking on this art journal page. I feel the desire to simultaneously write both fiction and autobiography with my life.
Color study from Elle Magazine.
Art inspiration from Sabrina Ward Harrison's The True and the Questions.
That colorful piece on the left is a collaged piece of paper someone from The Art Journaler Community sent me. The colorful half-circle on the bottom of the page is a snippet of a watercolor done by my daughter in art class which she let me use. The light-infused cabin is cut out of Elle magazine.
The quote is taken from Marilyn Monroe in the movie The Misfits which I really enjoyed. I wrote down a few quotes that were so stirring. This is the most serious film I have seen her in thus far.
I bought a few new sets of tiny alphabet stamps, which I used here on "untamed heart." I love mixing and matching them and plan on using them a lot in my zines.
