Art is...

...as Natural as Sunshine and as Vital as Nourishment - Mary Ann Kohl. When I came across this quote I knew I had to use it in an art journal spread. I feel very blessed to be able to create on a daily basis. Creating and expressing myself through art is my release without it I feel lost.

I wanted to make this a very free flowing, child-like painting. Something that was effortless. I started with some Dylusions Spray inks, watercolor paint, and Tim Holtz stencils.

Once the first layer was dry I sketch out my sunshine scene.

I then used watercolor paint and Distress Ink to paint in my flowers, sun, grass, and birds.

I am going to submit this to the Simon Says Stamp Yellow Challenge. This was such a fun little painting. I hope I have inspired you to create something. Thank you for stopping by.
