|The Egg Flowers (ink, colored pencil)|
The blossoms began as randomly placed yellow marker circles. Next I surrounded each one with jagged "blossom" heads. I let them sit that way because I thought, "my, my, they look like eggs, now what?" I felt a bit unsettled with the visual/linguistic combination of egg and flowers. O, I should explain, I am a little queasy around eggs that are out of the shell - I just am :-)
I came back in a few and added the leaves, stems, and ground. This is what I love about daily art journaling - it's very easy to take a chance, explore, and experiment. I find the greatest value in executing the daily practice. I wrote more about it in this blog post (Carla Sonheim's art journal layout, Cat Bennett's class, Making Art a Practice).
