This may look a bit like a train wreck, but it was an interesting lesson. The background started out with journaling the pages. Then the images were added and finally the modeled colors along with some gesso was smeared around, using the finger again. I am more comfortable with the control of the brush, but I am learning that Donna is a lot more free than I am. She definitely lets the art develop out of the page, verses trying to force it on to the page. I think I'm learning a bit about myself as far as that goes too. Ultimately, this was more cathartic than artistic and it does reflect how I feel at this point in life.... a bit of a train wreck... with a bit of happiness trying to peek through!
