is my one weakness..
ahh.. you know me too well..
one of several..
as you know dear reader,
all the mundane chores..
watering, weeding, raking, trimming and planting..
and our spring here was absolutely magnificent...
we had so many blooms..
and the bougainvillea were exceptional..
|Caterina Giglio, April Art Journal Pages, The Color of Flowers..|
I tried to capture that subtle beauty in my pages for last month..
and I was late, getting these pages to you...
precisely because I was spending so much time
Sometimes, my friend..
the beauty of this world created just for our pleasure, moves me simply to tears...
I find that beauty, that movement of feeling very hard to express..
As I sorted through my ephemera...
I found a color chart for Flower Colors..
with a corresponding page of the names of the colors, which was pretty charming..
and decided to use that as my background..
The weather changes so quickly here..
last month we had fireflies and crickets and suddenly this month
we have cicada and love bugs..
and if you don't know what love bugs are..
just google it..
suddenly it is summer..
and I will be in the studio more and the garden less..
as the rainy season is upon us..
Ingredients: Acrylic paint, antique and vintage ephemera, tissue papers, wrapping papers, colored pencil.
This week I am working on my new Vlog post..
Why it is OK to be a Scatter Brained Artist...
and I am starting my May pages..
as well as getting a journal ready for submission..
so much to do..
and I love all of it..
life is so amazing..
See you on Friday...
