Art Journal — A crazy dress to match some crazier hair

13 Flares 13 Flares ×

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.

  1. LOVE that image….I imagine it’s a self-portrait…considering how crazy you are.

  2. She is just PRETTY! Adore her dress — I really want such a dress for me too!

  3. You are your own version of wonder woman, Corrine! Love the all seeing eye in the middle of her dress! xoxo

  4. My kind of gal! I would wear that dress in a minute! -if someone could pry me into it! heehee And loving the hair too- I think that could be a new trend Corrine-! “) xoxo

  5. Wow! I love her and wish I had some of her super-woman power right about now!! Good luck taming the chaos – hope you’ll share some photos of the new place. I’m just itching to see how it all came out! xoxo

    Neat! And add her to the 4th of July!

  7. 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.

  8. Love the third eye on her Dantian, the center of our Qi. nice.

  9. I love it …. She looks like she really knows his to have fun 🙂

  10. This is great, full of energy – you are power girl here – and so good that you keep a bit of the house-making energy for journaling! Take care of yourself, Hugs, Valerie

  11. I wish I could pull off that look! You are living vicariously thru her I suppose, good for you, that energy never seems to stop with you! She’s adorable! Keep going!!

  12. 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 !!

  13. Super woman made me smile. She is wonderful and busy!

  14. Wonderful
    and Strong
    long may she run!

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

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

  17. 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!

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

  19. 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.


  20. Love your crazy girl and dress, so full of energy, she looks as if she is powered by electricity. Annette x

  21. So colorful and creative! This is great!
