Art Journal Day 18 - Pink

I woke up with a lousy headache today and I was extra tired, so I stayed home from church. I ended up vegging in my nightgown & a robe much of the day. It just so happened to be my pink nightgown, so it became the focus for one page of my spread.
I kept this simple by prepping with gesso, sketching in graphite, and painting with acrylic.
I added the Pink Panther label to the second page of the spread. I'm a big fan of the animated character.
My boss takes the employees and spouses out for dinner each January. Last night we went to a Japanese steak house where you can see your food being cooked right in front of you. It was entertaining & the food wasn't bad. But my asthma kicked up while we were there and I wonder if today's headache was a result of being at the restaurant last night. This picture shows where the chef stacks raw onion rings, pours a couple liquids in it and lights it on fire. Imagine a flaming volcano. It's quite spectacular, but it sends out a lot of smoke once the flame is gone.

Love your pink pages, very strong lines in your work - it is not something easily achieved, stay with it :>

I enjoyed Misty's color challenge this past week too. Thanks so much for stopping by and your kind words.

(p.s. I'm originally from the Midwest, relocated last year to TX. I do miss the snow right now, but not the blizzards!)

Take care,

How lovely... and schmumfy pink robes are the best!

I love your journal project. I recently bought a new journal (complete with several different kids of pockets scattered throughout its pages) in hopes of actually writing and sketching more this year...
