Yesterday I was in a funk, an overload of empathy for people and animals in horrendous situations, as well as the "heinous things going on in the world" du jour. It all just gets to me sometimes, and renders me momentarily immobile. In the afternoon I painted myself out of the darkness, although not with this painting. In a couple days I'll post Thursday's painting.
I don't have to be anywhere or do anything away from Rose Cottage for the foreseeable future. Which blisses me out no end. I just want to paint, and read, and sleep.
A few weeks ago I took a painting break to make a journal for a friend's birthday in early April. Gave it to him yesterday, early, so I'll show it to you.
My friend likes lots of room to write, so other than the collage signature covers, there are few embellished pages. Because he loves my art journals, I printed digital images of some of the best journal pages and adhered them to 12 of the heavy drawing paper pages. And there are six pockets.
He loves the journal, of course.
Hope you have a good weekend. xo
