Something from the Studio

art journal dreamscape demo (video) | Something From the Studio 12

Dreamscape intuitive paintings or art journal spreads are a favorite ‘subject’ of mine, for some years now. I return to them again and again. They are dynamic, changing in each season of my creative process somehow. Other worlds of unplanned symbolism, association and curious presence.

This demo video is one of several lesson demos from a previous course of mine. A play-along sort of lesson, where I share musings and considerations along the way. I’ve shared the spread here at the blog before, but the process transformation is where so much of the life is in art-making, ya know?

Grab the stuff of your current Creative Practice and create along with me while the video plays, if you like - hope you enjoy!

A mixed-media altered book art journal demo video. A dreamscape spread from start to finish with creative process musings. Dreamscapes are a playful, intuitive approach that takes you somewhere unplanned and usually a bit mysterious or magical.

when a meh painting becomes medicine | Something From the Studio (video 11)

An intuitive painting that felt just 'meh' turns into something more the next day, with grounding medicine for my mind, on a day that the world seemed too much to bear.
