Feelings....

Life Book 2013 Week 23 led by Tamara Laporte.  Using mixed media, we are to draw a face and whimsical creature honoring our feelings.  I don't tend to share my feelings publicly...character flaw...I don't know...I've got to give that some more thought...


What do you think the birdie is telling me?  He looks worried.  What do you think is scaring him?


Addition of various papers, water colors, water color pastels, gesso and acrylic paints makes the composition so much more interesting.  Layers - just like in Photoshop Elements - can make a big difference in an ordinary drawing...what do you think?

Very expressive, Pat! I think that art can be a wonderful outlet for feelings, especially when it is this lovely! xoxo

I think it's very expressive - maybe this is your way of outwardly showing your feelings. There is so much to gaze at - layers of expression. I really love it!

I love what you painted! And the bird is asking you to get rid of the cat because he's hungry!

Love the art and the great pastel colors you have used. Im not good at understanding the artists story, would never do well to visit a museum, but I do know what is appealing to my eye and I love your drawing!! I hope you have time to visit and share your blog in our WW. Wordless Wednesday withThe Cat
