A Star Can Never Die

It's no secret that I'm a Michael Jackson fan. So whenever I get the chance to put Michael in my art, whether it's in digital form, or a painting, or in my Art Journals, I jump at it. This week's prompt for The Documented Life gave me that chance. The prompt was "Monochromatic." Well, I've painted Michael twice in a monochromatic color scheme, so I decided to use a photo of one of those paintings as my starting point. This was the result.

Once I got the photo printed out, I sealed it with some Judikins Microglaze. I use that on almost every image that I print out to protect it. Then I embellished the photo just a bit. And then I created the companion page, using Inktense blocks and an Uni Posca paint pen, with one of Michael's quotes that I love. What can I say, I love knowing that Michael's face is in my art journal!

And the quote reads, "A star can never die; it just turns into a smile and melts back into the cosmic music, the dance of life."
