Sunday Sketches

Hello all! I'll be linking with Sophia's Sunday Sketches today! (see link on right) Below are some projects I've been working on. The first is my new art journal.
The next 3 are a piece of wood that I've painted:
I got the idea of painting on a cut up 2x4 from Junelle's class, "The Art of Wild Abandonment." It's been such a fun class, I hated to see it end! She is such a sweet person, and has such cute ideas! This last painting is another attempt to do an abstract painting. I would have enjoyed it more, if the black would have gone on darker. Maybe next time, I'll try watercolor paper instead of a canvas.
That's all I have for this week! I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and a good week!

I like the branch motif in the the second and third one. And there are some great colours in the last one.

Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes,
Liz

Such pretty colors on the wood. I really like how you can see its grain coming through. It gives it kind of a beachy, organic look.

The painted wood panel is so very wonderful. I love how the pattern of the wood shows lightly. Makes it more "alive" for me
