With the Color Of Summer challenges these past weeks, I’ve been limiting my choice of color in my art journals to the colors of the week. I at least tried to do that and because I had several other projects that needed to get finished, I haven’t had time to just go out and play in my journal.
Somehow, last night I urgently felt the need to splurge out in color, because it makes me happy and I needed that.
I didn’t even pull out every color I have in my drawer, but I seriously tried. I found the perfect quote to go with it:
“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm. But to add color to my sunset sky.” – Rabindranath Tagore.
Clouds did float into my life and instead of rain, I made sunshine.
So I guess I am learning.
And I can sleep better knowing that.
I did make a video, which is good I suppose, because I would definitely have forgotten to take progress shots.
But the video takes forever to render and process.
And I wanted to share this now, so I can get it out of my system.
Set it free so to speak.
So you do have a video on the back burner from me and I will post it as soon as I can manage. If possible I will add an update to this post.
edit: after the second time rendering….here’s the video
I hope you like my little splash of color as much as I enjoyed making it. Thank you for watching and I wish you a wonderful weekend.
