December Journal Pages

Well gentle reader..
as you see, 
I did not finish the cover
of my art Journal..

In fact, I am still wrestling with it..

I will finish it by this weekend..
and I will shoot it for YT
so you will see it finally..
I will shoot all the pages and put them in a blog post
 listing all the  ingredients
for you as I 
always do ...

But this post is about December..
which was just amazing..
one of the best holidays that we have had..

just wonderfully fun, sweet and peaceful...

so my pages reflect that peace
and I was making them as I listened to music..
I grew up with classical music..
my mother taught piano..

so I love music without words

one of my favorite current composers
Phillip Glass
and I was listening to 
as I made this..

If you are not familiar with his work go listen
on YT
you have surely heard his music on many
films, Kundin, and The Hours
are two of my favorites..

as usual the pages are bricolage..
I had some music wrapping paper
on my desk..
and it was on the page
before I realized what this was all about..

Just following the flow of the music..
listening with the heart..
and opening 
to receive whatever my muse has in store for me..

Ingredients: pencil, acrylic paint, glazing medium, wrapping papers, antique paper, walnut ink..

Alrighty then..
I will be back soon..

Thank you so much for all your kind
comments and remarks..

I so appreciate you

This is such a calm and lovely post and I am so ready for 2018 to be exactly all of this. I love music and it has saved me so many times when life becomes overwhelming. I am not familiar with Phillip Glass however I shall YT him very soon. Blessings for 2018 Dear...xo

A calm, peaceful existence filled with music and creativity is something we all need. My Colorado boy prefers classical and jazz music over anything mainstream. Wishing you a very happy and blessed new year.
