Art Journal Online - Art Journaling by Artist Kim


~ Art Supplies used


Art Materials:



Watercolor
Gesso
Watercolor pencil
transparent acrylics
Bic Mark-It Pens

Started by wetting a gessoed page and dropping color on it and watching them run together. After it dried,
I used the blots to lead the way. Three of the dried areas looked like two people and an alien on top of
the tree. lol The poem "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer kept running through my head as I worked, so the first part
of her poem is at the bottom of the page.


Milliande, I'd like to thank you for starting this journaling excersize and the wonderful community too.
I've been going through major depression and also my Mom is terminally ill, anyway, you've really been a big help to me in getting me excited again to do the things I love. The women in the community have also been wonderful too. Thank you so much!
Kim :)

~ You are very welcome ..I am glad that what I do and faciliate inspires you ..and I appreciate that you took the time to tell me .. this internet connection is at both fascinating and strange...connections are being made over vast distances, lifes affected without me ever knowing .. and at times it is lonely to be behind a computer screen and talking into a camera lens .. giggle but such a privelege to know that my art and sharing makes a difference

thanks for sharing, happy art journaling

Thank you

Hi Milliande,

The connections we make through the internet can sometimes be a lot stronger than in real life. Everyone "looks" the same, if you know what I mean.

In real life, sometimes people never take the time to really know the person in front of them...sometimes not even saying the simplest greeting of "Hello" because of different visual reasons. Maybe they are overweight, balding, different colored skin, too poor, too wealthy, or even simply wearing clothing that you wouldn't be caught dead in (to name a few).

Here online, more often than not, you meet the soul of the person first. That is what I find to be the most beautiful and wonderful thing about meeting people online. The internet connects souls and enables us to "see" without boundries and restrictions. :)

I'm so happy to have met you and everyone else here. Thank you for your friendship and inspiration.

Have a wonderful day!
Kim

Wonderful
by: Janeen Duer

I find artwork, including journaling, very helpful to work out things that are bothering or happening within my life. I think your tree is a wonderful representation of what you've dealing with. Trees have deep roots and offer comfort and shelter to those who seek them. The also regenerate in seeds to offer nourishment now the to the world around us and promise to shelter and protect in the future. An excellent creation you've done here. -janeen

FASCINATING!
by: Marcy

Whatever you do to work through your emotions is in itself a healing thing. My heart goes out to you at this time.
Kim, your page is FASCINATING! I enjoyed looking into it, my only wish was that I could see it more closely could you put it in the gallery so I can get a better look? I love the idea of the medium leading a random way! The colours are great too. I am inspired to try this myself. Thankyou for sharing!
