7″X9″ Visual Journal
Paint, ink, vintage images and personal images.
It is interesting to me looking at old childhood photos. I can tell when life took a different turn and my life changed forever. Life is changing in big and small ways in our home right now. Do we use this as a time to move? What do we do next? Many, many questions. One lasting constant in my life is my journals. They are there for me, comforting me, bringing stability. They will always be there for me.
Change is always hard but it keeps us from taking things for granted. Change often brings new ways of looking at things. I wish you new ways of looking at old things! I am so glad you have your journals as a constant during this period.
I can, in utter honesty, relate to that so very well. When all seems to shake and shudder, art making is the one thing that brings peace to an unsettled heart. More specifically, art making in an intimate book can heal an achy soul. I like these pages very much…they encompass a whole range of emotions that I can clearly identify in myself, yet it has personal nuances that I cannot nor shouldn’t even attempt to decode cause they are yours.
