shantadevi A different take on top of yesterday's #artjournal #doodle. Acrylic paint in my art journal tonight. Words: Art is creation/destruction... 2d
  •   doomarchivist Love this! 2d
  •   shantadevi Thanks so much, @doomarchivist ! :)) Before starting on top of the page, I had been debating - should I do it or should I leave it alone - but I loved getting out of my comfort zone and back into painting, which I love...even doing that (painting) in the same style/manner day after day can get boring though, so it's fun to mix it up like this... 2d
  •   doomarchivist Most definitely - and it turned out great! 2d
  •   shantadevi @doomarchivist Thanks again, that means a lot! :) 1d

shantadevi Finished! Lots of love and pain and paint and guts and fear went into this one...started 2013-03-22, finished 2015-10-24. Worked in on and off and became my daily #artjournal earlier this year. 4mon
  •   art_journal_girl Love if. Every single page is transformed into something else. Amazing. 3mon
  •   shantadevi @art_journal_girl Absolutely! And when flipping through finished journals some time later, it blows my mind how I usually appreciate pages I hated at first, and get a kick out of the *feel* of each journal... 3mon
  •   art_journal_girl Exactly. It's cool to see how my ability changes throughout the journals too. 3mon
  •   shantadevi @art_journal_girl Yeah - when I push through and try something new or experiment it's sometimes scary, but when I re-visit those pages I love seeing that I tried something different. Or with continued practice of an aspect of my style like abstract drawings or doodled faces - I like seeing the little differences and evolution from journal to journal. 3mon
  •   themadwanderer love it when journals get like this :) 3mon
  •   shantadevi @themadwanderer Me too! Thanks for the comment. :) 3mon
  •   uclagrad Thick! 3mon
  •   shantadevi @uclagrad Thanks for the comment! And that's one of the best parts - how huge they get and how they're full of memories and paint and collage, etc. A true record and log of a period of one's life...:)) 3mon

shantadevi Full version on my Flickr. Inspired to edit together and post by a friend. :) Quotation is by Martha Graham. Background mixed media painting is my art. I layered the hand-written text over an image of the painting in the Procreate app for iPhone. 6mon
