This is the third week of January. We’ve had snow, bitter cold, winds..and today? A high of 43 F. Feels like summer. Okay, I’m stretching it a bit. It’s time for Art Journal Week Three. My prompt was: beauty.
Week Three Prompt Beauty
Who came up with these prompts? (Me.) What was I thinking when I wrote down beauty as a week challenge to art journal beauty?
Start with a Face
When I thought of beauty, I first thought of the quote “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and then I thought of an attractive person-a female. I decided to draw a face. When I painted the face in, choosing white color, I paused. I was going to dabble and doodle all over the face, but decided to leave it blank.
Your Idea of Beauty
Later in the week, I decided to add pictures to demonstrate what a different point of view would find beautiful. A hot sports car. The Mona Lisa. A field of tulips. Everyone has a different vision of beauty. A mother holding a newborn. A trickling stream in the woods. The Milky Way.
I looked for a few quotes on beauty to add to the page. This one resonated with me.
Week Three Wrap
How did I think week three went? Eh, okay from a creativity viewpoint. The page seems a bit unfinished. I’m going to leave it for now, let it percolate. Onto Week Four!
