Finished at last!

Finally, I've finished a journal, only the 3rd I've ever completed I think.  I have at least 4 or 5 others started, I'm very fickle when it comes to journals, so this is quite an accomplishment for me. I was looking through it yesterday, realizing how much my art has changed since I started it, which was probably at least 4 years ago.  

These pages have no continuity in subject or medium, they're kind of crazily random, just whatever I felt like doing, or was in front of me and inspiring me at that moment.  And I'm not sure what I want to work on next, probably not much as I'm out of town for the next 4 weekends. Then, amazingly, the Holidays will be upon us!

I hope you're all getting some Autumn to enjoy, we're just getting teased with it here, but I feel it coming!

Journal pages

I haven't been home much lately, but I have made a little progress in my mission to complete this particular art journal.  We went to the Sausalito Art Festival on Sunday, which provided me with inspiration as it always does, so hopefully that will help me make it to the finish line.  Wonderful artists were there as always, and fun live music in a gorgeous setting.  I've posted pics before so I didn't take any this time, but I gotta say it was much hotter than it should be in Sausalito which is right on the bay near San Francisco - I felt sorry for the artists sitting in those sweltering tents all day.

The following two are my take on a couple of Stefano Bessoni characters - I love his twisted yet whimsical art (although the first one is just cute, but definitely with some trouble brewing in those eyes), and I'm getting in the mood for Halloween as I long for Autumn.
