an abundance of art!

i have tons of work to show
all done in art journal collaborations...
{which; i am realizing takes a lot of time}
for me, 
each book is the essence of the person
and i wish to compliment and hug each of my friends
with the work i put in their books.
and so,
i start with a "buffer" page
it takes me forever to do what i feel in my heart.
add to that
themes
and wonky pages underneath...aarghhh!
where shall i start?
at the beginning of where i left off, i suppose,
without too much commentary.
tracy dove~love
and that all started with the jimi USPS stamps and a funky dollar bill
and a question
answered by william strafford

and then, by priti lisa ...that's me!
do you see those stamps?!? click on the picture :)
don't bother to read what i wrote...i forgot to write down my favorite line...
about the rusty halos! sheesh!
but i am not done sheesh-ing myself...
priti~bird! but her feet!!!
i didn't finish painting her feet!
i didn't notice until i was loading these pictures to my blog!
sorry judie...i am so ashamed.

i am also ashamed to tell you...
{i cannot mimic living artists}
...at least not on purpose
i was to be inspired by anahata katkin
and 
at least i tried to capture her warmth, her humor, her colors
{do you notice the 8 in her right eye?}
it is carved in there; to represent the eight of us.
this artwork doesn't look like anahata's
or mine
but it does look like a million other's,
don't you agree?
i wasn't "out of my comfort zone"
because
i don't have
the confidence or the feeling of
"yeah, i've got this"
i haven't reached my comfort zone yet...
sometimes i think
challenges like this
are just avoidance,
you know?

love and love. 
ps: sorry. i lied.
that was a lot of commentary.

  3. Wow Lisa, you've been a busy girl creating so much beautiful art! I adore that priti-bird, such a pretty plumage gorgeously created & I didn't notice anything wrong with the feet! I think your Ana pages are vibrantly beautiful, you're too hard on yourself, I know they will be treasured! Hugs, Kat xx
