Geisha Memories

I quite enjoyed making this collage yesterday 2/17/08 as I was in a mood for some Asian flair and had fun looking for just the right images, one of which I colored myself. I used a weaving technique to unify the two different background papers which worked quite well.

Valentine's Day Images Hurray!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here is my take on the holiday from the pages of my Art Journal. I'm just a beginner at this and don't have any cool quotes or anything written in, since my handwriting is so totally crappy and illegible. But I had fun with the collage: finding a site with real sheet music- this one was for a romantic waltz which I graphically tinted and printed out, and the images were from various free sites on the web.

Double Meme

Got double-tagged for a meme from friend Karen at http://www.justmorewords.com/2008/02/ive-been-tagged.html.

Here's the rules:

Part 1

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages.)
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.






I picked up "Self-Editing For Fiction Writers" and guess what? Page 123, including the illustration, only has three sentences! So I'm off the hook. However I would like to mention that I'm learning a lot from the book, like what a conversational "beat" is (ask me!)...


Part 2 Answer these questions:

1. If you could do anything you want to, what would it be?

Live by the ocean.

2. If you could paint the whole world 1 (one) colour - what would it be?

Peacock blue.

3. Would you rather be an animal or a person?

My dogs have it pretty easy so enough said.

4. If you said animal - which one?
Dog.

5. Do flowers talk?

Only to other flowers.

6. Have you ever known that a spirit from another realm was nearby?

Yes, once in a good way, once in a bad way.

7. Add your own question here.

Have you ever had a dream that later came true?

Now, Link back to the person who tagged you.
