BUT, what to do with this book?I felt like I was out of ideas and really, have I ever HAD a good idea and for that matter; why the HELL did I ever decide to be an artist......was getting ready to really wallow in self pity and then, BAM, it came to me! Because I had been thinking of octopi and them having 8 legs and that led me to thinking of numbers and them my weirdo little brain started thinking about how much I like stars.......well, what if I did a night sky with numbers instead of stars and so I started sketching and here's what I came up with.
Have you ever heard Einstein on the Beach- very cool modern opera...
anyway, that was playing in my head while painting this.....
My plan is to make it a little less monochromatic and then I have to paint the background pages with a quote- something about counting blessings....it will be attached in pop up format and I might, might do a tutorial since every time I do pop ups, people ask!
And here is my extremely monochromatic palette- I assure you it will have more color tomorrow!
For now, try to stop by Tracey Potter's blog to see last week's P&P entries!
Have a great day!
