Mixed Media Monday - Art




I don't know an artist who doesn't have a fascination with colours. I enjoy the freedom of just sifting through my drawers of paint looking for a colour that beckons to me. Who know why I choose the one I do but I find myself excited by its possibilities. What other colours will I selectt to use with it? What mood will I create when I do? Whenever someone asks me what my favourite colour is, I always answer with difficulty. Red seems to come to mind immediately but I feel that I'm almost betraying all of the gorgeous hues and shades that give my life excitement and portray a myriad of emotions in my artwork. Judging from the quotations from artists used on these two journal pages, I'm not alone. This is my entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge.

I love these pages, such great use of color, and I love the quotes. I think it's so great how color speaks to so many of us and how the colors you use can change with your moods.
