Some of my journal pages - some of these have made their way into finished pieces
On my mood board I am sharing art that may find itself in paintings or not. This red-headed mermaid is painted as a cover of my handmade watercolor journal
A study of angles and working out how to put sea plants and shell placement in her hair.
Red King Rabbit
I really liked this red king rabbit that I painted in my journal and he still may find himself in a painting.
This was a quick study about impressionist roses.
Garish Or In Your Face Art?
Here I tried to be bold and less in control. Not sure whether I liked the result
Skull Mandala was created on a brown paper bag. Art can be made anywhere. Sometimes the best art is made with cheap supplies.
I loved playing with her lips. Playing with human features is fun.
Study Of Green Tara Devi
This was my first draft of the Green Tara Devi. The commissioned piece turned out to be quite different though.
I experimented with oils a while bag on canvas sheets and now can’t find where I placed those sheets. Note to self : Stop hoarding art supplies.
The reason why we artists addicted to our journals is because we can draw or paint across pages and not worry about imperfections and mistakes. I love this page.
And I don’t know where I put this little painting that I did on a watercolor paper. Still love it, just can’t find it.
Gel pen Tibetan Dragon
Doodling dragons is good fun and filling in the scales can be a meditative practice
King of Hearts
A collaged piece in my journal. The heart rules the roost!
To The Beach We Go
She never was painted in. Some day perhaps I will get around to finishing her.
This gorgeous creature was painted in my journal. Love these alien creatures. I love them so much that I love eating them!
A-ha And Visiting Terracotta Army
So this journal page happened as I was listening to A-Ha’s song - Summer moved on and was leafing through our local city’s magazine.
Lady No More
This poor lady didn’t go to her forever home. I painted over her and now the canvas hangs in our bar room. Sometimes we have to stiffen our hearts and do paint overs.
Little Kingfisher painted from an art book.
Waiting By The Sea
Pazuzu Warm- UP
Painting And Waiting For Storm
Flowers on a circular wood board.
Angel In Works
Working on a three foot canvas. Hoping to finish it by next week.
Painted in my watercolor journal. First words written, acrylic inks and then buddha head drawn and lightly painted over to unify the piece.
I finally decided to use oil paints to paint a portrait of our daughter, Parita. Its a distorted portrait since I love taking creative license with my art work.
Girl With Flowers Tattoo
Working out color composition, the fall of light on skin and the kinds of flowers to be used as tattoos. Its a beginning composition. Probably one of many before she is translated from my journal to a painting board.
