How's Your Heart Today?
Empty Journal Seeks Creative Genius For Casual Fling
Art Journal
Artist: Write what you hoped to express with the artwork
Hurts: Green
Worries: Purple
Hopes: Blue
Joys: Dark Green
Viewer: Without looking at what the artist wrote, write what you think the artwork is about and what it means to you.
I wanted it to look like my worries and hurts we invading in on my heart and engulfing my hopes and joys. However, my hopes are gaining strength and are trying to push away all the worries. I made my heart open to symbolize my willingness for change.
I can see that there aren't a lot of joys.
Lots of purples and greens which represent hurt and worries. This makes me think that the artist is experiencing something sad.
Heart is small and not in the middle - makes me feel like her heart is not her main priority right now
Very sad but there seems to be hope that the next day will be better
Blending looks pretty
Lines are smooth and elegant - worries that she is used to dealing with?
"No Matter What They Tell You,
You Don't Have To Stay Within The Lines"

create this print?
I will include:
