21 Day Blog Love Affair: Day 17

IMG_4705

Oh, Monday. How I loathe thee. I know one should start the week fresh, but Mondays are hard. I’m taking part of a inspiring creative prompt called “Make Art Monday” hosted by Jo over at Maps to Herself. Jo inspires with a weekly prompt to help soften the harsh reality of Monday and push you forward on your creative journey. I technically started my artwork over the weekend but, I did finish it tonight. Today’s theme is JOY. For me, the rich jewel tone colors and flower mandala in this painting embody joy. Working with bold colors and patterns inspired by nature brings me happiness! Please join the fun at Maps to Herself if it speaks to you to do so.

Above are my in process photos. These photos were taken at different times of the day so, I apologize for some color inconsistencies. I had fun with my copper paint for the accents on this piece. I took a picture of some side angles at the bottom of the collage, the last one really highlights the copper. Happy Monday! (I’m trying)
