This is the piece I made for Sam for Art of the Month.

A little , ok alot, Mirka Mora inspired.

Which got me musing about people that inspire me and why.

Mirka ofcourse is one… maybe its because of her age (i like to have a role model for women who live life so fully) her attitude, her family AND her Art that I’m drawn to her.

I’ve also been loving Freida Kahlo’s journals….

and been reading Niki’s World to my daughter using her visual journal techniques as inspiration too.

Thats just a few.

You know those times when life picks you up like a leaf in a swollen river and carries you downstream so fast and crazy that it barely seems you have time to take a breath let alone stop and write about it.

Thats my now.

and this made my heart sing

I watched lovers tread so light on the earth that i swear their feet didnt touch the ground.

his music touched me

I met more that i think may change my life….

i did the veggie workshop !

i sat with the whale on my doorstep

I cried some more

i reconnected

next week i might do it all agin…..

January Journal 3

Here is a work in progress…

This sketch is the idea for a small painting that i did today, i’ve had the image of Klimpt’s kiss in my mind since yesterdays journal page – so it filtered through. Anyway, Marty snuck in and took a couple of shots – so i thought i’d post those – for something a little different.
