Frida Khalo Inspired Quote

" I paint flowers so they will not die"
-Frida Khalo

I had created this piece a while ago and 
thought it would go great with a Frida Khalo quote,
but it needed more!
I wanted it to be a journal page....

I made a series of pages using wine labels.  I felt the need to make the bottles for the labels!
Heres one of the pages and the canvas of bottles for the pages!

Art Journal Journey.....The last of the Flowers

Some time ago I created a page stamping veggies.  Yup good old vegetables! Romaine lettuce and celery work the best. Its something I used to do when I taught elementary school.  I am sure the middle kids would love to do it too, but I am not sure how I can creatively make that a lesson!

I think I Have Art A.D.D!!!!!

I feel like I've been all over the place with making things. 
 Not really staying focused on one thing for to long.  But I actually think that helped me be distracted enough to decide on some painting that I would like to do.
From last weeks mess that I made......

Summer Art Challenge.......Alliteration Name Game

This weeks challenge from Shulman Art Blog is alliterations.  The goal was to use only the first letter of your first name and find the words to describe you using that letter.
Sounds easy......not so much!

Flower Power......Window boxes

More flower power...its everywhere.

Inspiration Photo... taken in Bar Harbor Maine...

Ok so my painting only has three windows! I like things in three's......or maybe just poor planning! Either way I enjoyed making this, and thats what its about! Anyway there's a lot of differences but once you start sometimes you can't hold back!
