I hope you had a wonderful holiday...
mine was very quiet and peaceful
with lots of moments for meditation
I lit my solstice candle
and wrote dreams and goals
on tiny paper strips
to be planted in the spring
in my new garden,
wherever I am!
It is hard to believe that
my 2010 journal is finished
these are my December pages....
have you ever had a month that began "in the pink"
and ended really grey?
that is where December went...
as you see, I am still using trees to illustrate feelings...
this month I journaled directly on the page, covered it with collage,
and when the feelings changed, I gessoed over the collage and drew the trees
onto the papered page...
to see the beginning of this journal and December 2009 pages, go here...
my ingredients this month are gesso, pencil acrylic paint, acrylic glaze, micaceous oxide, sharpie fine point,
collage, handmade paper, thread
I recently found two vintage ledger books in pristine condition
so I will be using one of them for my 2011 journal,
stay tuned you will get to see it soon!
I affirm that 2011 will be a banner year not only for artists, but for Art in general...
let's all drink a toast to that eh?
