Art Jounaling 2015

Well it's a new year....I have found myself less motivated for the last 6 months and its just been hard to get anything done in my art studio. I have a painting that I have been working on little by little and that really isnt like me. I usually get in get out a canvas and draw and paint it up in a day or two. But this canvas is huge. I was intimidated by its size 3x5. I am slowly making progress and I hope to be showing you it in the next month. 
I ordered Jane Davenports new book Drawing and Painting Beautiful Faces and I anxiously waited for it to arrive. I received it a few days ago and I just love it. It is so beautiful and so inspirational. I decided to draw up a face in my art journal and maybe get back on track to being creative once again.  We will see how it goes!
So being my first drawing/painting of the new year and inspired from Janes book, I decided that the quote would have to be about Beauty. I dont just write down any thing, it has to touch me.  And this quote does just that. I used watercolor pencils and pit pens to color up this face.  Just a quick sketch and some quick painting...trying not to over think things and just go with it. 
Hope you like it, stop back again and see what I have been up too. Have a few upcoming projects for orders as well that I will be doing soon!
