stormy journal

Storm Journal $60.00

A few people have mentioned that I need boyish journals so here it is; A new one is up. It says," stop telling God how big your storm is and start telling the storm how big your God is". It's made with a map of Vancouver collaged onto the cover of an Opus Slim artist sketchbook (8.5x11). The boat is made out of the page of an old book I got at the Vernon Safeway, Le Roi Des Mont. First I primed it with Golden Gesso and then a layer of stormy acrylic paint. After that I cut up and stuck down the map of Vancouver, making sure to keep the parts with water uncovered. I trimmed the waves with a hint of ink and touched them all up with a bit more paint. Finally I added a boat and a bird and now it just needs a quick topcoat and a dreamer who wants to write all their stormy stories.
