Nature Art Journal

I just finished an 11" x 14" art journal cover page. After giving it numerous glazes and truly overworking the mountain/sky, I am finally done with it. 

Painting landscapes come natural to me. You can't go wrong when choosing nature as your inspiration.

Here's what it looked like at the beginning stages (i.e. initial wash). I had no idea what this would morph into. I did see snow-capped mountains in the distant horizon, but I also saw a vase with white flowers!


 
And remember folks, no matter how tempted: 1) never dip your paintbrush into your coffee; 2) never drink from your dirty water bucket....it has zero caffeine in it!

Yes, but we've all done it, right? Dipped the paintbrush in the drink cup, at least.

I found you on Alisa's blog today--so glad I did! Your work is wonderful.

As for the coffee...I have dipped in the coffee by accident! The cup warmer is a great idea. I get so wrapped up in what I'm doing that mine gets cold.

Gina, I love your blog! I would like to know what make and style of book you're using that allows you to take out the pages and put them back in? Thanks, Shelley

Thank you for the kind comments everyone! Shelley, I use a binding machine from WeRMemory Keepers called "the Cinch".
