One Way ------>


So, in a previous post, I mentioned that I've been painting and journaling, lately. While cleaning up my disastrous studio a few weeks back (and yes, I have managed to keep it pretty clean -- yay!), I came across a journal that I had started a long time ago.

I finally finished the front and back covers . . .and all the pages are painted. Gesso really is my best friend . . .the covers were re-done twice. I'm pretty happy with the results:

A Corridor

I've had a desire (rather, more of a need) to paint and journal lately. Sometimes, ya just gotta get your hands dirty.

I've been painting a lot of pages, but I admit that I sometimes struggle with putting words on a page. . . especially in my own handwriting.

I finally stretched and put words on a page . . . and, ya know what? It really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Stay tuned for more journal pages. . .
