Blue

Hi Everybody!

Another day has sped by, and I do not have much
to show for it.

For Art Journal Journey and 99 faces I have another A3 mixed media page, once again in blue. Recently I squeezed much too much paint out of the tube, and used the surplus to make several backgrounds, which accounts for my blue phase. I spritzed the page with some inks in blue, brown and white, sprayed water over it and watched it move, and I find the effects quite interesting. I drew  the face using a home made face template, and used water colours to add colour to her lips, eyes etc. I collaged some strips of old letters, a feather, some fibres and a couple of stars. The quote is from Dylusions and has also been collaged.







Some more photos of the wonderful sunset at the Rhine:





And the sunrise the day after:





Today was just wet, wet, wet all day, so didn't take any new photos.

Have a great day you all, take care, 
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  7. Amazing page Valerie. I am pleased you squeezed out too much blue as I am loving the blue pages. The face is wonderful and the eyes draw you in instantly.

    Your sunsets and sunrises are always stunning with colours we rarely see here as it is mostly cloudy.Thank you for sharing them

  8. I'm really enjoying your "blue period." The face is incredible, and the quote is SO, SO positive.

    I can tell that winter has truly arrived in your area. There are no leaves on the trees, and the skies have taken on a decidedly winter feel. Beautiful to look at, as always.

  29. Valerie, I want you to know that I needed that today. I am sitting here swimming in tears. Knowing this beautiful artwork was just for me this morning. I have been struggling so, with responsibilities, with the future, and missing my Beloved with all my heart. Thank you for posting this amazing artwork.
