Painting of girl with shield

This week I am sharing a painting and a couple of journal pages based on lessons from TAOS (The Art of Sisterhood - an online class from Kara Bullock Art.)

This painting is large for me - 18 x 22 with an "icon" type look/folk art feel.  As usual, I went my own way rather than trying to copy what the teacher did in the lesson. But it was a great lesson by Lauren Rudolph.

Next up is a journal page.  This was based on a lesson from Tiare Smith.  Lots of writing in the layers - a great art journaling technique.

And last but not least is a journal page from a lesson by the lovely Jackie Barragan. About love and forgiveness.  Lots of fun layers of collage and paint and writing in this one.

Sometimes art journaling is about making a pretty piece. Sometimes it's more about the process and thoughts behind it.

Well that pretty much covers my art week. I'd love to see what you have been working on!
