Laughter is an instant vacation. Great quote. We can always use some laughter in our lives. I have read that it is like inner aerobics. I had fun creating the mandala on this page. Mind you it was a bit difficult to get nice lines as the page is very textured. I glued a layer of dyed paper towel to it first.
On another art journal note, tomorrow I am going to be teaching art journals at a local community center for six weeks. This should be really interesting. I really hope that the participants find it helpful!
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
