Art Journal — A crazy dress to match some crazier hair

I am trying to squeeze some journal time in every day.  Art is definitely keeping me grounded through all the chaos that surrounds any renovation and relocation.  The crazy hair is how I feel, instead of my head exploding, the hair is.  The dress developed out of the crazy hair and has a super-heroine kind of quality to it.  I imagine the seeing all eye in the middle, laser focus to wrestle the correct answer of out any question.  A little Wonder Woman on the cracked side if you will.  I dig her shape, wish I was that young again, and her colorful illumination. Sigh…I need the energy of a super woman about now.

Markers and gel pens, posca pens and some gesso on a use it up painted background.

    I believe she is the inner you and that you will prevail in all you are hoping to accomplish in art and in this relocation of home. Next year at this time you will be all settled in and wondering why you were so stressed! I love that you still make time for some art with all you have going on. Just goes to show that where there is a will there is a way.

    Dear Corrine, yest we all need a power woman, in our life ,now and then, and I surely understand you having the need of her now,in the middle of all what is going on– (me too)
    we are lucky , when we find the power within to go on, and not brake ,- and the making of art, truly is a help in calming down and feeling quiet inside.
    Love your younger superheroine !!
    xo, Dorthe

    I hope this inner energy fills you up as much as she can to get you through.
    Take good care of you, Corrine !

    Very cool! I love the eye as her belt, sitting over her power-center!

  17. Kay Wallace August 13, 2014 at 1:03 pm #

    I love how you seem to draw your energy from your art….and your art from your energy! How cool is that? I know that both you and your Super Hero have a lot on your plates right now,but I also know that your Super Hero has a Super Heroine as a partner. You two together will rock this assignment!

    Oh such life and energy in this one, she dazzles!

    It’s really admirable that you are making time for art during the renovation. There is no way I would have the energy to do so. You go girl. About being that young again…just recently I was reflecting on something my mom said not even a year ago. She said she still felt young inside…like she was in her 20’s. That really stuck with me. Youth is all in the attitude. But I’m with you…there is no denying our aging bodies…it is only our mind that we have control (sometimes) over.
