I hate to waste paint; so when I am working on a project, and there ends up being leftover paint on my palette, I swipe it into a number of journals that I have, that are set aside specifically for that purpose. Eventually, after I do enough paint slapping, it starts to look like something, and then I go in and finish the page. It's fun and low pressure.
This is one of the journals I use for this purpose. It's actually a book that I purchased when I was on a getaway with my girlfriends to Door County, Wisconsin. We visited a super-inspiring indoor/outdoor art gallery, and they had this recipe book for sale:
I wasn't too interested in the recipes, but I loved the title, and the fact that there were beautiful pictures inside of the artwork in the gallery. So I brought it home; and now I'm using it as an art journal.
Anyhoo, I had this page almost finished, so today I just added the quote and a little doodling and I'm calling it done! Here's how it turned out...
"Walking Each Other Home"
