Don't Worry....Be Happy!
I'm feeling the "island" vibe even though it's 20 degrees here and the wind chill is I don't know what....It's COLD! When I was at my niece's wedding in New Orleans a few years ago, I wandered into an art gallery that had a large painting...maybe 6' x 6'....and it was a painting of African American people, very colorful. I can't remember any more about it...except that I remember that I would have liked to have carried it out of the gallery! It was sooo cool.
I was looking through some of my paper stash this morning....you forget what you have....and I came across a 2 page flyer from the cafeteria at my former office. It was from Black History month, probably a couple of years ago. Inside of it, it had a recipe for Caribbean Jerk Chicken (sounds good), and also explains the difference between plantains and bananas. I happen to really like plantains. And it had some other interesting facts as well. It also contained a photo of some tropical yellow fruit (no not bananas) and some very colorful beads. I tore the photo into strips.
I put some random paint on my journal page...used neon acrylic colors mostly, and then I glued these strips onto the page on top of the paint. I hadn't actually intended to do a face but, as you can see, I did a face. Island woman. I have to say, I love her. Fun day in my art room!
Feeling a little Bob Marley now?
Don't worry....be happy.....
