The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Illustration Friday~Open

"Books open doors to brand new worlds."

~~I've known about Illustration Friday for a while now. I always thought it would be fun to participate, but most of the work that I do takes several weeks to a month to finish.
Today I thought I would try something new.
~~The theme for this week's IF is "open." I decided to do a revisit of my "Storytime" piece. This is a pencil drawing with digital color. It's the first one that I've ever done and it was so much fun! I've had Photoshop for over a year now but haven't taken the time to really play with it. I wanted to play even more but the day flew by. I will definitely be trying this more often.
~~There's an arts festival in my town tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to it. Seeing art in person always leaves me inspired and ready to create. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)

Kasie,

I decided to join IF this week, too. During sign-up, one of the pages I was on had you listed! I'm not as quick as you are on the draw! Way to go! It looks great.

Sweet illo. Love the idea of sharing an open book.

Monica said...

We had similar ideas! :-) Books do open doors to brand new worlds, and can bring us closer to friends.

Welcome to IF! I watched for a long time before joining and participating and it has been a wonderful experience!

Keep working at the Photoshop. I've been using it since at least 1992. It only gets better as the years go by. Eventually, you won't be able to tell you used photoshop at all. Great work!
