Happy New Year to you all!
As I write this it is 2 AM and I just got home from celebrating New Year
with some friends, and we had an enjoyable and very yummy evening!
At Art Journal Journey we have started a new challenge, and by popular request, we are repeating 'Inspired by the Masters'. We are looking forward to seeing by whom you are inspired and what you make. There is so much inspiration out there, so get cracking, be inspired and join us at Art Journal Journey!
My first inspiration for this year and theme is René Magritte, a Belgian Surrealist painter, and his exploration of dreams and reality, which meet each other in his work. I made a page in my giant journal. The backgrounds were painted with acrylics; blue-black for the night, and sky blue and white for the day. For the heads I used my stencils, and have made the Umbrella man 'my' man, I am sure Mr Magritte would have liked him, too! The houses were also drawn with a stencil.
Today was a cool and very misty day, the world around me was shrouded in mist. I love how the mist absorbs the colour and sounds.
Have a great start in the new year, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
