Good morning Blogland! Have you linked up with Elizabeth the Altered Book Lover for the smashing Tuesday's Tea Party yet? I'm running a little late (for me) this week. Decided to clean house last night instead of blogging. I know..............oooooo yuck! But it had to be done and since I spent the morning and half the afternoon doing some cleaning and organizing with Betsy (my desk) that just left the evening after having a rest in between......grin.
So this week I'm showing the third page of my "Today" art journal, quite bright as it was done with Sharpie pens. Even though this is a heavy water color paper they did bleed through. Yes, today would be a good day to just drink coffee and create, but sadly that will have to wait until later this afternoon. I have a list of errands to accomplish today that actually started last week, but having a funeral to attend mid-week threw everything off around here. DH and I have become the creatures of habit we used to criticize our parents for being............LOL So I will be around to visit everybody, even if it isn't this morning.
Journal 52 prompt this week is "In the City", and I decided to have a little play with perspective, non-perspective and mix it up with humor. There is a painting that I had to study in my art history class.........way back in high school, that was so out of perspective that it drove me crazy. I just remember the painting, not the artist or the name of the painting, 'cause I've slept since then.....LOL
Anyway I did this rather late at night, and didn't like it, so I went to bed. The next morning I had decided I would start again, but when I looked at it my first thought was "I like it" even with the windows being out of perspective (which will drive me crazy) and the goofy eyes everywhere. Why the eyes everywhere? Well, to me the city can be kind of spooky late at night.
So now it is time for me to LINK UP with Elizabeth and maybe make it to a few fellow bloggers before I hit the road a running.......grin
