There is no easy way from the Earth to the stars. - Seneca
Big topic, with so many possiblities. I really didn't know what to do, I had so many thoughts and ideas.
Decided to just start.
Laid down the usual acrylic wash in blues, purple and a little red.
Then the fun part, flicking white paint all over the page to create a star filled galaxy .
The journal is full of colourful planets and aliens and a little whimsical, so inspired by the cover of a children's book I saw at the library and the first nursery rhymes most of us learn, l made a start.
The little astral boy slowly took form, surrounded by lots of stars and planets.
Dancing through the galaxy, is he sleeping or just day dreaming, I don't know.
But as he plays in his imagination he asks, Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are?
And there you have it, all done in a blink of an eye.
