photo inspiration

In the Scavenger Hunt I'm currently part of, we're supposed to give our partner a jpeg image with a strong color. That color will end up be the predominate color in the art piece we make from our Scavenger Hunt finds. I passed my photo along this morning. But I happen to love the place I took pictures of so I thought I'd share some of them.

art journal - new layout

It isn't often I'll post a page from my art journal here. Maybe the whimsical stuff, like my Russian Studmuffin pages. But not too much else.

However, I really like this layout. I think it's one some of my friends might like for their own art journals. :)

I've finished Her. Haven't finished Him yet. I don't know when I'll get back to that one. My mind is on other creative ventures at the moment.

I've also submitted #LOFNOTC (as this painting is officially called) as an entry in a tarot card contest. The cards needed to be inspired by Amanda Palmer... as this painting is. And we also had to submit which card we wanted our artwork to be. I choose The Magician. The Magician speaks to one's creative actions and a willingness to take risks. It also has to do with recognizing one's potential to communicate.

I think this painting says all of that and more. When all is said and done, I'm very happy with this piece.

Zen Garden - a small step

Today I started building my bottle wall in the Zen Garden. Wow, this is hard work! Building the wall isn't too hard (though I'm a long way from finishing it!!!) Mixing the cement; now THAT's hard! I did it and everything came out ok. But it wasn't as easy as I had been imagining.

It's a long way from completion. Right now there are 3 layers of bottles. I'm envision more like 12 - 15 layers of bottles. I don't think I have that many empty bottles. I might have enough for another 3 to 5 layers. Guess I need to get drinkin! Or make friends with a local bartender.
