Can you tell it was a happy day? No matter what is going on in my world, when I get painty it is always a fabulous day! These happy hands and my muse collaborated to bring me a bird-ephant with an important reminder!
I squirted a bunch of colors and closed my eyes! With my eyes closed I couldn’t worry about what color I was using or if it looked “right”. The more I painted on the the 18×24 canvas, the happier I felt.
Upon opening my eyes, the swoosh in the middle kept calling to me, so I outlined what I saw. This animal probably won’t be found in any zoo around here…
A bit of white to make my bird-ephant stand out, as if a bird-ephant wouldn’t stand out!
After doing this canvas I wished it was in my art journal…Luckily, I have a printer, so I printed out a smaller one and headed to my art journal!
I started to think about a bird-ephant as I built this quick art journal page. This bird-ephant doesn’t fit in the usual zoo circles. She doesn’t fit any one else’s definition and she doesn’t need too fit their definitions! She dares to be herself! A big thank you to my muse for giving me the reminder I needed today!
