Beauty – Art Journal

Beauty?… To me it is a word without sense because I do not know where its meaning comes from nor where it leads to.  ~Pablo Picasso

If I had this to do over, I wouldn’t give her the big chocolate chip earrings.  This is another page from my Strathmore Journal. I like working larger.  This is the second attempt at this face and I’m still not 100% happy with it.  I was trying to get rid of some old white acrylics craft paint and it wasn’t going on smoothly…the rest of that paint will find a place in the garbage.  I am happy with her eyes because it’s a departure from how I usually outline the eyes with pencil or black ink.

(ADDED LATER)-After I finished this post, I went to Sharon Tomlinson’s blog  and she posted an old Navajo prayer yesterday,  “Walking In Beauty”…go here to read it.  It’s amazing!

Here are some snow photos I took yesterday:

    Me again, I forgot to tell you that I died laughing about the chocolate chip earings.

    You’re really out-doing yourself lately! This is fantastic! I think her face is beautiful. And I love the way you did her hair/hat. She has a certain mystique about her.

    I saw Sharon’s blog yesterday and I loved that Navajo prayer, too.
