Surprise find in the cheap journal
When I am "throwing paint around" and it's time to quit because it's 12:00 am and I know that I have to stop my brain so I can sleep I throw all the leftover paint into a cheap Walgreens sketch pad. These take acrylic paint very nicely because actually the paper is sturdy. I also had some crackle on this one that I was wondering if it would still crackle because it was about all dried up. So I find that sometimes in cleaning up my pallet I make things that are better than the thing I was making. It's that "no think-no pressure" thing again. I am thinking that sometimes it's not what you paint but the colors in the painting that make the painting. It's pretty much all about color anyway. Color is alive. God uses it all the time very successfully!
