Messy Bigness on Canvas

“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.”
Pablo Picasso

 24x36" canvas

If you work on a big canvas, you have real estate galore. You can have a bunch of little paintings in one or treat the whole thing like one big spacious art journal page as I do! Golden clear tar gel, fluid acrylics, airbrush acrylics, ephemera, handpainted papers, papers from journal fodder swaps.

Thank you to Ricë (of Voodoo Cafe fame) for including Daisy Yellow's Kick-Start Prompts and No Frills Prompts in her round-up of Journal Prompts at Create Mixed Media.

The past few weeks... I've been painting on canvas, prepping for the new art journaling workshop {The Museum of Simple Things}, painting canvases, filling in the latest Rhodia Journal for the 2012 Journal swap.... an explosion of creativity.
