Laughter is such good medicine…
for whatever makes us ill
or sad,
or worried…
I love my circle
of true friends
who love both life
and laughter.

This is a page from one of my art journals where I practice my sketching skills; it was sketched on tissue paper, added to the primed journal page, and then painted with acrylic, watercolor, and ink on 140 lb, mixed media vellum paper.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    Oh Brilliant! I can just hear them! LOL… you could write an illistrated book with these two! Great piece!

  • Thanks so much, Susan… I started these women a while ago and just never finished… they were sketched and put in my journal because I did want to write a little story about them… but since the story wasn’t coming along fast enough, I decided to go ahead and finish them. :)

    They are gorgeous Angela! I love this so much! The colours, their faces and body shapes, their clothes and shoes- it’s really beautiful!

  • Thank you so much, Laura… this is a tribute to big beautiful women (my friends and me) in one of my art journals… at my age, I am so tired of dieting to be slimmer… and trying to fit into someone else’s idea of what beauty is, or is not. I just want to be healthy, happy, and surrounded my love and laughter, know what I mean? I really appreciate your comments on this painting… really! :-)
