ORCHIDS, GARGOYLES & ELEPHANTS – OH MY! ART JOURNAL 2014

September 2014 Art Journal - Page 109 WATERMARK

FIRST WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 2014 – ILLUSTRATED ART JOURNAL – This week on the coast was a very hot & humid week due to a tropical storm down in Mexico.  Beastie Cat slept in the shade upside down all day trying to escape the heat.  I spent the week hibernating in front of the portable air conditioner & creating mini Asian screen cards with watercolor art & rubber stamps.  At my Chinese brush painting workshop, we painted lovely orchids.  I made card board butterfly templates for a future art project & painted watercolors of hot peppers & squash from the La Jolla Farmer’s market.  On my trip to the art supply store for watercolor paper, I ventured outside for a few minutes & took photos of lion gargoyles in front of an old building and an elephant mural painted on a cafe wall.  Art is everywhere for an artist by-the-sea!
