I realized when I was writing
on my pages this month..
that I had a lot to say
about the color blue..
June was a lovely month
spent with family
cruising through the
|Detail of June art journal pages, mixed media, Caterina Giglio|
and although I wrote about our interactions..
and commented on the changes taking place in the grand kids..
I found that I kept going back to the
power of the ocean..
about the tranquility it provides ..
and the mesmerizing effect..
that it has on me..
has on all of us,
I imagine that I am not special..
since we are really water babies..
the water really does call us back
beckons us to travel inside ourselves to
a deep spiritual place..
a place of connection rather than attachment..
or at least it feels like that to me,
I often have an idea in my head about
how my pages
each month I think I know where they are going to go..
and though my pages are little different
than my original idea,
they still contain...
the basic idea..
the color of the Caribbean...
I originally intended to paint directly on the page..
and then I suddenly found myself painting sheets of paper..
in vibrant blues and greens..
and then I tore them into pieces and began to fit together the
image that I saw in my head..
is it ever? identical?
not in my experience..
but I am pleased with it..
peace. tranquility. serenity.
pure and simple...
