The prompt at Art Journal Journey this month is Peace. What a big subject, my mind went into a frenzy of ideas.
In the end I decided to do a take on peace that is true, whether it is world peace or personal peace. Conflict arises from misunderstanding and non-compromise. We are all the same under our surface differences, which is why I chose to illustrate a cat, bird and dog having a peaceful conversation. They are natural enemies but they can coexist. A calm environment helps to ease the agitated mind. When we are calm we can talk and sort differences out, even if it is to agree on our differences!
For this page I used my new bound art journal – it the first page so the subject of peace is wonderful. I used pencils watercolour and acrylics and markers.
