A Giraffe Gallery ~ Artist's Play Room #58

I am DOing, if no one had noticed already, The Year of the Giraffe with Carla Sonheim. I've long loved these long-necked creatures and these past 5 months have only deepened that love.

A few weeks back on APR we got the chance to make some art like an artist or a style of art that inspires us. I chose James Rizzi BEcause his style of art makes my heart happy.

Something happened in BEtween that and the month of May's Giraffe-ing adventures, and I have started painting. And drawing and painting. I've tapped into my inner Rizzi you might say!!

So here, this week, I am sharing a few paintings and giraffe collages I've made with my painted papers and self-created collaging papers. I hope you will enJOY this wee gallery and I'll also invite you to explore my other blog where you will find a great many more giraffes...

Every single one is a gem, with your trademark gorgeous use of colour. The giraffes really make me smile, and I love the quote about patiently learning to wait patiently - something I have still not mastered.
As always, I enjoyed this post so much.

Cool! I love how you experimented with different media and techniques to explore the same theme. Your joy in creating these giraffes came through strongly. Thank you for the heartfelt words you left on my blog, my friend. Blessings!

Wonderful Giraffes Currie, patience is not something I have too much of, well only when doing what I want to do! I know it is a fault in me, yet it is so hard to control! I need to learn patiently. :)
