Thinking of those who serve our country; their families, loved ones and friends.
And then there is this.
I was so excited to find Misty Mawn's new book out at my local BN on Friday.
I have been absorbing it all weekend. This is the kind of book that makes you want to drag out all of your 'art' toys and dig in. The book is loaded with Misty's artwork, which is generously placed through out the entire book; end to end making it a visual feast that feeds the desire to not just look, but to engage in artistic activity. 'Unfurl'.
This is a new page in my 'informal gathering' journal.
I have been keeping the journal open when I work on other projects and then when I find an element I like I add it to a page. Today I was working on a custom journal and several of these pieces came out to play. I've got pages with snippets of paper on it, another has a feather I found in the yard a few days ago. I am keeping at it, just working in the moment and being spontaneous.
'A visual journey of ordinary objects,
of stuff I love and things that inspire;
to be inspired
to reach beyond
to search within
and to know
where to look
to emerge from
what is left behind.
