Doodles in my art journal before work today...even the smallest effort made, maybe 5 minutes with these, is so worth it. I can focus and zone out/in and relax while making art, especially doodles like these where I'm not concerned with right/wrong and can be in a flow of just making marks quickly. It's my favorite and most trusted form of expression. #art #artjournal #faces #doodles #sharpiepen #thirdeye #artbyshantadevi #femaleartist #blackartist #moleskine #artforpeace

Back to painting in acrylic again in my art journal, this morning and finally found my groove...#acrylic #paint #artjournal #artistsofinstagram #art #artbyshantadevi #femaleartist #blackartist #abstractart

Doodles and free writing in my art journal...Words read: & here / hear i found a place & platform for 'things' & promise & allocated measure . . . and here / hear i found a planet to say thanks to . . . a body to perform with, and words to say here / hear & there / here -- i found a peace / paix i found a place to rage / to rant -- to say these open words that sting my ego & melt my fortress (walls) down & out & to the sea, i give my forehead & fortune . . . & to the see / sea, i give my love & laughter that speaks -hello- & gives / builds off the light on the ocean . . . #artjournal #thirdeye #face #doodles #pen #moleskine #moleskineart #freewriting #writing #thoughts #freeverse #streamofconsciousness #art #creativity #artbyshantadevi #yearofcreativehabits #artistsofinstagram

My #art #tbt ....first three images are #artscans from saved (!!!) art from when I was a kid...first piece is in #crayon , second two are in #watercolor - #portraits of me and my #childhood best friend, and #StregaNona and her "magic pasta pot" - one of my fave childhood stories. The three #drawings are from...maybe age 18 (??), #doodles done in #pencil . The last drawing is referenced from the #pose on the cover of "Anatomy for the Artist," by Sarah Simblet, with photography by John Davis. Anyone else save their childhood doodles/paintings/drawings and, or photograph/scan them? I mainly do it in the event of a fire or earthquake, but it's also cool to enlarge them and have the option to edit and share them...

My #meettheartist #doodles in my #artjournal ...I love music, tech-y things, jeans & t-shirts as my wardrobe, drawing & painting, my "Om" tattoo, tea, and cookies! :p #watercolors by @primamarketinginc #artbyshantadevi #blackartist #femaleartist #pen #sisterlocs
