The rains have finally arrived and this was the perfect weekend to stay home, make some cream of cauliflower soup, some pumpkin bread and play with my art!
I'm having fun making these little accordion books....so I made another class example. This time I used primarily photos from magazines. Since, we made zentangles, in class, I included one of those and one of our projects is going to be making a coffee or tea cup, so, I included one.
This is the front cover......
As I am writing this blog, and looking at this photo, I am profoundly struck by what this little booklet reveals about me! I love color, unconventional art, red doors, shiny smooth sculptures and using outdoor furniture inside! Hmmmmmmmmm, maybe Julia's book is helping me discover my "vein of gold".
The other side refers to the tenets of Julia Cameron's book "Vein of Gold". She suggests doing daily morning pages, taking a walk everyday, making artist dates with yourself and writing your timeline. "Cups" is another term used by Julia. I still have one page open....waiting for the perfect inspiration!
Sunday, we took the dog for a long walk and along the way I picked up a few colorful, fall leaves.
Voila, another page for my nature journal and a lovely, relaxing weekend comes to an end.
