I really enjoy the spontaneity of creating and the memories that come with art making.
Since I have been using cookie cutters as stencils for my art this week, I decided on a tree shape today:
But after three days of black and white doodles, I needed COLOR!
So I added a tint of color with Copic markers over my doodle:
The patterns and wonkiness reminded me of Alice in Wonderland! LOL!
This got me thinking about a friend of mine, Alice who used to decorate her Christmas tree with hand-blown glass ornaments that her nephew made – kind of like this one:
I have this one hanging in my bathroom in front of a window. (Please ignore the dust…)
I always thought my friend’s tree looked so magical with large one-of-a- kind ornaments hanging from its limbs and the light reflecting off the glass. A little like the colors of my tree with color pencils added:
I miss my dear friend, Alice who passed away many years ago. Yet, when I look at my glass ornament, I am reminded of our friendship and her colorful tree!
May the memories of your loved ones spark happiness in your heart today!
PS. How do you like my new signature “JKK” on my artwork?
