My Credo

This is a belief statement I made for myself. I started with the penciled spiral, then I used watercolor pencils to fill it in. I went over this with a wet paint brush. Once that was dried, I inked my words in rollerball ink.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with my visual journal, and wanted to share some of the latest entries with you!

Journal Entry: New Vrindaban Temple

I went with my brother on a school trip to New Vrindaban Temple and Palace of Gold in Moundsville, WV on Tuesday. This is the journal entry that came out of it!



What Are You Up To Today? Wednesday

Wow, it’s already Wednesday again. Today in my art world, I’ve been working more on my visual journal. I completed a couple collages based on a trip to the New Vrindaban Temple yesterday and I inked a pencil drawing I did last week. Right now, I just completed a drawing of a new tulip. The text around it is taken from the Wikipedia entry for tulip. I’m just drawing on the floor right now in my sitting room, so you can see the area rug there. Also in the picture, my pencil bag made from recycled rice bag from Cambodia, a picture I used as a reference, my pencil sharpener, and an ink pen.
