Likeness: random journal page 191

Likeness: random journal page 191 by Laura Chenault features a woman superimposed with a face that is on top of a map of Bodega Bay. The word likeness is collaged vertically in the upper right corner.

This week's collage features the figure that was cut out of Sunset.

Changes Vacated Early: Random journal page 190

Changes Vacated Early: Random journal page 190 by Laura Chenault has a photograph on the left of circles and spokes and a found poem on the left.

Another spread from one of my many journals. As always, the poem text is underneath.

Sunset: Random journal page 189

Sunset: Random journal page 189 by Laura Chenault has a cut out of a woman emergine from an upside down sunset.

This week's collage from one of my sketchbooks. I always love abstracting figures and I really like the position of the realistic shadow and the cartoonish cutout.

Cry Baby: Random journal page 188

Cry Baby: Random journal page 188 by Laura Chenault is a mixed media spread that has torn purple paper on the top and gray field from a magazine. Across both, but mostly on the bottom is a blue and black, pencil and marker drawing of an eye.

I've been obsessed with drawing eyes since high school, if not earlier. This week's glimpse into my sketchbooks is just another version.

Connections: Random Journal Page 187

Connections: Random Journal Page 187 by Laura Chenault is a collage with a map of Oakland on the left and an image of a man holding something unidentified on the right. Stripes across the man continue into the grid lines on the map.

Finally! I'm back and determined to share with you more work, more tutorials, and more adventures. I'm kicking it off with this random journal page. 

Beauty in Things: Random Journal Page 186

Beauty in Things: Random Journal Page 186 by Laura Chenault has a found word poem on the left side that's collaged with torn paper. The right side is dominated by a red mixed-media drawing that resembles a red rose or a vulva.

This week's random spread from one of my sketchbooks features a found poem and a mixed media drawing. As always, the poem text is in full below. O'Keefe would be proud!

Red Night: Random Journal Page 185

Red Night: Random Journal Page 185 by Laura Chenault has a bokeh-lit night sky on the top and a map of Oakland on the bottom. In the center, a large red figure made of negative space, torn paper, and watercolor pencils dominates the spread.

I really like how the negative space from the city photo creates the top of the figure in this week's random journal page.

Mine. Yours. Ours.: Random Journal Page 184

Mine. Yours. Ours.: Random Journal Page 184 by Laura Chenault is a spread from one of her sketchbooks. The left side has a palmistry diagram and the right has a photograph of a leaf. A red and yellow plaid pattern connects the two and the text "Mine. Yours. Ours." spans across the pages on the bottom.

This week's random page from one of my sketchbooks. I've been a fan of palmistry and phrenology since high school and I love how the hand and the heart work together symbolically.

Liquid Soul Window: Random Journal Page 183

Liquid Soul Window: Random Journal Page 183 by Laura Chenault features a large watercolor eye on and orange background. The iris of the eye is a circular, kaleidoscope pattern and the top half has images of metallic liquid and bubbles.

Another week, another spread from one of my journals. I've been drawing single eyes like this one for decades.  I especially like the collaged iris on this version.
