Mixed media collage
Hai Mousai means The Muses in ancient Greek. Originally, there were only three muses. And they showed up in my journal. Here is the journal entry text:
My posse is back! My Muse showed up and she brought her girlfriends. About three weeks ago, I started my art journal with a 5×7 spiral sketchbook and vowing only to use markers. Now I’m using all kinds of media. And yesterday, well, yesterday I bought a fresh set of acrylic paints and actual canvas.
I haven’t painted on canvas for over seventeen years, ever since I moved into a tiny apartment with no studio space.
There are no more excuses. I will paint on my bedroom floor if I have to. The Girls will get after me if I don’t.
