July/August Journal Page
In this journal, the book owner chose a color theme for all her pages. I decided on orange because I find that it is my new favorite color this summer. It must be the warmth and boldness. The page before this had an image of Frida Kahlo - Mexico's most famous female artist and the page following mine had an Asian feel. I decided to bridge the three pages together by painting my version of Frida complete with Asian accents. I also wanted to poke fun at perspective by having everything out of perspective. After frustration with the background - it took me three times of covering over to get something I was happy with - I was pleased with the finished page.
