art journal painting


This is the next page in my "Summer Series" art journal.  The "Summer Series" is much play and experimentation directing me in the next way to go.  It's important to me, to constantly seek new techniques to expand my work.  In this image, i painted my patterns on layers and layers with Golden Fluid Acrylics.  I first put down blocks of color, then outlined them with more color.  Then, painted leaves, dots, stripes and then shading the elements.

It's something different for me, NO WORDS!!!  I liked this painting just as it was, and decided not to word over it.

p.s. that little red smooge is some kind of UFPO (Unidentified Flying Paint Object)


  1. Love love love.....as always!!!

  2. Kathleen, you are CUTE CUTE CUTE as always!!!!!!!!! xoxoxo

  3. You know I'm kind of partial to those UFPO's!!! I've got to put down my copic liners and doodling and get to some loose mixed media. I miss my paints and you are so inspiring!!!! Did I mention I'm totally waiting for your new stamps tapping my tootsies!!! LOL!!

  4. omg, Mel!!! I JUST realized that YOU are my "melissa" commenter, duh!! So wish you lived closer so we could tear up some art stuff!

  5. It's me Jo!!! LOL LOL!!! Can you believe how far we live apart, how did that happen?! One day we'll get some create time together, of that I am sure. Until then I'll just moon over your creations and not so patiently wait for your stamps to get released. (giggle)

  6. BE-UUUUUUUUUUUUU-tiful!!!!!!!!!!! xoxo
