SPO: Dance

Sunday Postcard Art Challenge: Dance

For the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, with the theme of dance, I used a picture of Mata Hari bellydancing overtop of pages from a German poetry book from the 1890s.


Journal Entries: Enjoy!

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

“We do not remember days, we remember moments”- Cesare Pavese

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!



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.


I’ve been working a lot on my visual journal….here are some of the works-in-progress. I have inked more on some of these already, but I used my grandfather’s scanner, so I will scan more recent pages when I’m next there.
