In the Ode to Nature class I have been taking, Week 4 was all about Creating Nature Inspired Artwork. Alisa encouraged students to doodle and work in other abstract ways. I am definitely NOT a doodler (although I've seen some wonderful examples of doodle artwork in the class flickr gallery, especially this one by Andy Lean). I was willing to try some of her other suggestions, though, and I came up with today's piece for Paint Party Friday. It's an art journal page based on the seed pods I featured in this post. I abstracted the shape a bit and went with unrealistic colors to create this art journal page. I added a scripture quote which Abi added to her post here and which has really stuck with me since I read it. For other entries in Paint Party Friday, go to this link.
