Art Every Day 2 or more accurately, still day 1

OK, so this is going to be a slight confusion, since I actually created this yesterday evening. Thing is, I'm not going to have time later to create AND post - I'm a busy girl don't you know?

Last night was actually rather lovely. I had to do some work after my son had gone to bed, but once finished, I was bursting with creativity and inspired by my earlier work I attacked old book pages and drew faces. I wonder if it was some subliminal uprising against writing. I'd been crafting words all day... clearly I needed some escape!

However, I WILL create today... It will just have to wait until evening. It's time to start work now, so must dash...

Join in the Art Every Day of November challenge here.

A date for your creative diaries... Tomorrow the wonderful Amy is hosting a live workshop. Well, I say evening because that's what it is here. It's 2pm CST (whatever that is!). Here in the UK we have the 'proper' time - GMT (I know, it's 'mean' but what can I say... some bloke in Greenwich decided he wanted to own it and so he did! We can't knock him for taking the initiative).

Today's/yesterday's piece is oil pastels, coloured pencil and acrylics on old book page.

  6. It's lovely! There's something facinating about seeing words peeping out from behind a painting isn't there? Your creativity knows no bounds! :)

  7. Absolutely stunning! I've been thinking of creating a collection of faces on book pages as well. :) I'm such a pioneer, I know! :))) See you at Amy's tomorrow.

    For AEDM I create any time during the day, post in the evening and pre programme it for the following morning. I´m always showing the previous day´s work.

  18. Superb, and very vibrant.

    You're not the only one who's creating one day and posting the next, or is that the other way around? :-s

  19. I love the portraits that you're doing on book pages - it seems so appropriate for you... The visual and language arts colliding!

    I also think it's fantastic the way you have taken what you have learned from Lynne Hoppe's tutorial but totally made it your own - I can definitely see "Lisa" in these paintings... So cool!

  21. She is gorgeous, Lisa....she is so relaxed and with such a wise countenance...

    She looks like she flowed so easily from you! Truly beautiful!

  22. I am loving these faces with the book text underneath! I love the idea of meaningful words and phrases peeking through, as in Ingrid--but this one is my favorite so far!
