A very dear friend of mine passed away yesterday. His name was Nomti. He was a 17 year old Siamese cat with diabetes who loved popcorn. He would always sleep with me when I lived with some friends of mine, who were his owners. And even though he didn’t technically belong to me, I always felt that there was a special connection between us. He was my buddy. I loved him so much that I still have yet to stop crying. Here is some art I was inspired to make in his memory.
Rest in peace Nomti. ❤
Hello again friends! I wanted to share with you an image I made today. I was inspired by someone named Katwise. I love her art and wacky self and the banner she has on her site. So I made one of my own! In my last post I mentioned that life for me is changing, and so will my art. This is a direct result. It’s fun, right? I love it!
When I go to Goodwill I look for canvases that I can use to practice my painting on. I was given some gesso as a gift(thank you R.L.!) and I just use it to cover the old painting. Recently I found a canvas that had been preprinted that was 30″ by 38″ and I instantly knew what I wanted to put on it. So I bought it and brought it home. It is a good and common practice to create “rough drafts” of art before one starts on the actual product, so I made this! I have not yet started on the actual painting but this collage helped me to find the feeling and the image I was going for. My next step is to do thumbnails of my image to find the color scheme I want to use. After that I can go to work on the canvas. I can’t wait! ❤
A collage I made recently with paper and silver gel pen. Lotus’ have been everywhere for me lately. Perhaps it has a spiritual connection… ❤
Multimedia. Photocopied eyes that were modge podged onto a wood panel.
What does it say to you? What does it make you feel? ❤
I made this collage with a computer way back when I was in high school. It has always been a favorite of mine. I didn’t find out until many years later that there is actually music to go with it! ❤
Images and characters do not belong to me.
A collage I made at least a year ago when I was very into Belly Dance. ❤
Another paper collage I made in my sketchbook. Another self portrait in a way. ❤
I do not claim any ownership to the individual images.
A little while ago I got myself a new sketchbook to kick start my new journey through art. Some of the first images in it were made by collaging images from magazines. Here is the first image I made. Perhaps it is something of a self portrait? ❤
I cannot claim to own the individual images, and since I don’t have the magazines anymore, don’t know who really owns them. They came from multiple sources.
