Van Gogh Journal Pages 23 & 24

 

Hello Friends!

Yesterday morning I was reading “The Te of Piglet” by Benjamin Hoff. Just reading and writing in a different journal inspired me to do these pages in my Van Gogh journal.

I enjoy collaging intuitively. Not having a plan in mind helps me relax and take my time and think about design and color.

On the right page is one of Vincent’s “Self-Portrait with Straw Hat” paintings. The left page at the bottom says this painting was done in Paris in the summer of 1887. It was oil on canvas, mounted on wood. But it was only 34.9CM x 26.7 CM. which is small.

I love this painting of his, so I decided not to alter it. After I collaged the pages, I mixed some Golden’s Hansa Yellow Light fluid acrylic paint with some matte medium to make it more transparent and painted the white spaces. I also am enjoying using pallet paper with dried acrylics on it. I never know how they are going to come in handy for a project which is fun!

Lastly, after thinking about it for awhile, I printed the words REFLECTION and MUSE on the left page and PONDER and SEE on the right page since these are things I have been doing more of these days.

Have a wonderful day! 😀

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. Not having a plan is probably what makes this so much fun because it’s always a surprise what little treats show up in your art.
