This is a mixed media self-portrait collage done as the cover of my book of ideas…

This is the front cover of a 9″ × 12″ Canson Mixed Media pad turned into yet another art journal; it was painted with acrylic and ink and then I used a drawing of myself as a collage element.

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.

    a brain storm love the music across the top

  • Thanks so much, Karen! I took a break in December but managed to keep up with my art journaling. I never thought I’d be able to embrace the practice and yet, I rely on it quite a bit now. Of course, my journaling is not so much a spilling of my soul as it is a place to experiment with ideas, create color charts for my mixed media, record lessons learned, and outline new techniques. That kind of journaling really works and I’m having a ball. :)
