Flower Power: Art Journal Page
I have to admit I love drawing and painting flowers. I've been doodling flowers forever. There are so many possibilities with colors, shapes and lines.
In this journal page, I'm focusing on looking for the positive. Lately I've been hearing so many complaints from my kids. Nothing seems to be right, and certainly I am never right, at least according to them! (Why didn't someone warn me about the teen years before I had kids?). Anyway, it's too late to dwell on that now, so I am reminding myself to look for the flowers. There will always be weeds, but there is also so much that is good and wonderful all around us. I've noticed my own complaining, too, and I'm trying to stop myself and try to set a better example as a parent.
I had so much fun painting, drawing and doodling this page. I'm afraid it got a little busy, but I like how cheerful it is.
The mysterious figure in the corner is a museum guard, you know those guards who have to sit all day watching to make sure that no one touches or steals the art? I cut the photo out of a magazine because I was intrigued by it. She certainly seems serious. I hope that she gets to see some flowers at some point during her day!
I've been painting lots of floral and garden themed paintings recently. If you're interested in seeing more of my work, go here, or just scroll down my recent posts here in my blog. I also have even more posted at Flickr.
I'm linking this to Art Journal Journey. Check out the other great Flower Power art people are posting there! Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I always appreciate your comments.
