Inspiration Avenue has challenged us with the theme "Shine". Immediately "Shoot for the stars and shine" shot (!) in my head and stuck. So I started to work - I thought about stars that sparkle in the dark and hands that reach out. In addition, I finally saw a chance to try out black gesso for the first time. So I started to work.
I must admit, I'm not really happy with this. I actually had my doubt to even post it here - but then I thought about my word of the year (authentic) and told myself - well, it's me, and sometimes my creations are not to my liking. Perhaps one day I'll find what's missing in this piece. On the other hand, perhaps I just leave it this way. It's a page in my freshly started art journal, so why not just leave it.

Honestly, it reminds me of some school work... oh well. But this is happening in my studio right now.
I'm linking this to JRU studio for Sneak Peek Friday and Roban Studio's Art Walk Friday as well as Creative Every Day.
