Colorific ART


While participating in Mystele's on-line Gut Art class, I am trying to listen to the "why" that I do what I do. I'm not sure that it is necessary; however, while I'm feeling the freedom in my Gut Art Journal to just BE me and explore ART without my own self imposed limitations, I do hear the "why". What I'm saying is that I do make conscious choices about making marks of color.
For me, the finished facing page dictated that I should carry the color red across. I scrapped the leftover red on the page and days later came back to discover houses and roofs and there was the word "home" at the center bottom. The face also reflects the red as it should.
I finished up the page with the adjective form of color.....Colorific !
Expect colorific ART,

  7. Great reminders to look for things and use ones imagination, and direct color in an artful way so a piece is enhanced. Reminders that sometimes drift off as we work and get our minds to wound around the idea of our art turning out well.

    I do love red, it stimulates all by itself. It just feels good.
    A bit in art is fun and unexpected even when the work doesn't have much.

    W#hy we do what we do? For me it is simple, I enjoy it and really like many forms of art. I feel better when I do some each day.
    Even as good as exercise. Doing both makes one feel really good.

    Hope your feeling good today and your mind wanders toward artful things. Your making me want to do an art journal and I will, I found a lovely old embossed cover for it yesterday.
