Google+ What I Made Today: Two Faces of Reflection

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

Two Faces of Reflection


This morning I revisited the concept of reflections, since it is the topic of this Thursday's Foolish Wisdom discussion group, so when I sat down to begin my journal page for the day, I recalled Picasso's "Girl Before a Mirror," and knowing I wanted to include a face for 29 Faces, I figured, hey, I'd use Picasso's image for a some artful inspiration.


I really loved the sense of query that creating this image conjured for me, and was pleased that the mood of query carried over to the finished image. For me, anyway.


I wanted to add more layers of color and interest, as well as detailed embellishment, but I had things to do and places to go, and was pleased enough to have filled a journal page, explored some personal inquiry, conveyed some ambience, and to have produced two faces for the effort of one.

That's what I made today. Peace.

Wow, I love the brilliant Picasso-like colors and designs in your beautiful artwork. What a sweetie you are to allow us to show off our own work here on your blog. I love also the little wiggly lines.

Those are absolutely lovely. I have often thought of starting an art journal, and have one of sorts, but it's more photography and poetry that I write. Beautiful post and wonderful ideas. Bright blessings, Bird http://birdsearthyspirit.blogspot.com/

I really love this! To me, it conveys the idea of really looking at ourselves...looking at the internal as well as the external. It's very beautiful, and it really made me think deeply! I love it when art makes my brain jump into action, and this piece definitely did that! <3 <3 <3

Such creative faces! I love this journal page. I hope to try 29 faces at some point, but not this time. Things are way to busy and I'm taking Effy's class as well. All in good time, I guess. Looking forward to more faces!!

How strange that we both posted a duality face on the same day. Your faces and figures are really gorgeous, and I like the wavy lines in the background. Thank you for your comment - much appreciated.

She really looks like an image in a mirror, and stylized too. You amaze me.

Though I like all of your postings for this 29 Faces challenge, these are my favorites. I'm not sure exactly why they speak to me so much, but they do.

I love the shapes and colors, and the sense of mystery, even amongst all the brightness.

Thanks!
