Art Journal: Perspective

“What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”
Jack Kerouac

Continuing to add to The Noticing Journal. These pages started with some stuff I didn't adore and was kind of sick of looking at each time I paged through the book. So I finger-painted over the page {it was drips of paint with words on top, but I can't find a photo}. On this page, moo cards with my abstract paintings, postage stamps, maps, bits from an Italian magazine, abstract art... more paint...

The woman on the top right is looking at the chaos around her and trying to gain some perspective, some objectivity about what she sees.

This is my art for DAY EIGHT of ART EVERY DAY MONTH

November is Art Every Day Month (aka AEDM), an annual creative tradition hosted by Leah of Creative Every Day. I hope you'll get involved!

Ooh...LOVE all that color! I know how the woman in the top right seems like all I do anymore is try to gain some perspective on the chaos around me! Beautiful work!

Love the symmetry of the Kerouac quote with the art journal page. Very mesmerizing.

{Tammy}: Patty, Thank you. Pure serendipity... the quote and the page!

Wonderful, simply wonderful....amazing what you can do with something you start out hating on, no? I love it!!

{Tammy}: thecsweet, Thank you! After all if it's your journal, you get to choose what to trash, what to change, what to keep!

Really like this spread, and oh, I spot Swedish ice cream stamps!

{Tammy}: Hanna, Sometimes when I am gluing something of yours to the page (something you've sent), I am curious to see if you will notice! So happy you like it.
