August Art

Compared to July I think August is going to be a quiet month(thankfully) for me.
 Last month I was taking my son to the summer camp,to summer reading program at the library, karate, we made a holiday trip in the beginning of the month... On top of all that, I got busy with art too, with some postcard swaps, online classes and the Circle Journal, which I had already mentioned in my previous post. Oh my! the month went so fast that I can't believe it's already August.

This week I want to share with you the art that I did on my art journal. These two lighthouses were created as part of a challenge. 

The red one is close to my heart because it is located in my hometown in India. For me, lighthouses were always an image of something sinister and haunting. But once I did these I just love them even more, now I see them as part of history, a building that may have witnessed so many interesting incidents of the past, a place that is sure to arouse one's curiosity. Guess, next time when I go home I need to make a visit to this lighthouse. My kids would also enjoy it.

I still find inspiration in Priscilla Hauser's book, Little Landscapes. This winter painting below was done from her book.
