    The color is just magnificent and I would just love to walk up those stairs to no where. So beautiful.

    Love this, but disagree about the stairs leading nowhere as being pointless..they are leading to anywhere you need them to lead…XO

    Second thought…don’t they look like they are leading to the endless skies, heaven, where unforgettable someone is?

    Third thought….I remember them leading to an amazing view of the vast ocean.
    Fourth thought would be that this is moving me. XO

    WOW! I love all the chatter. For me this page is a prime example of the beauty of art journaling- to be present and work through a very personal issue right there on the page. I love that it brings out different things to the viewer.

    Brian- this is amazing- it really hits on some very personal stuff. i have a few things that I use in my work a lot sort of personal iconic objects- doors- windows chairs and stairs this is so expressive.

    Love this journal spread Brian – the blue color used in it is striking!

    Amazing! I love the shades of blue. I think you have not used so much blue. It is powerful! It goes with your powerful message.

    I love the blue, it’s all so beautiful!. Blue is about communication!… and this is communicating, (I feel), that sometimes nothing you say or do will change the relationship you have, or had with someone…
    I have the same feelings too about people in my life…and I love the stairway, esp. the shark image on it. which can mean something too…..
