This week I completed the 29 Faces for Ayala Art’s 29 Faces in September. If you want to know the stories behind the last 4 faces go here. I actually do have a plan for some of them, but more about that later. Here is a compilation of the faces I did last month (some of them are cropped because some of my dimensions were different.
If you want to see them all in full go here.
I had planned to have a break from art this week and get into the garden. But the weather hasn’t been suitable, you k now what spring weather is like very changeable to say the least! But all was not wasted as when I saw the theme for October at Art Journal Journey set by Sheila from Orange Esmeralda I was delighted. It is: Deep in the Forest!
For ages I have had this box, years ago I use to paint these boxes for gifts and inside there was stuff particular to the person concerned. So here was this box littering up the place, I had a brain wave I would paint inside of it. So out came the acrylics and I got started….
I love our native bush her in New Zealand, It is often very dark and mysterious and you can imagine another world of creatures living there. Often little creeks trickle through the trees creating a sparkling light. What I love the most are the small waterfalls, they are such a surprise to come across. Our bush is like this box from a distance the dull olive green of the canopy hides a world of treasures and surprises.
I so enjoyed doing this that I think I will have to get some more boxes made to paint!!!
My inspiration. The falls are about 50 km north from here and the bush scene is about 10 km in the Tararuas.
Hope you all have a wonderful week.
(I have not forgotten the methods I use for my journal page. Hopefully I will organised enough to have some for next week.)
