Have Wings

This is from my art journal. I am trying not to think too much. Oh how I struggle with this! I guess I have been trained to plan my layout and design and by trial and error, paste up and re-lettering until the piece comes together. And by blood sweat and tears sometimes it did---sometimes it didn't. But this area of mixed media collage and the freedom in the art journal is so different that I am always trying so hard to jump back in that lettering arts box. I still love that box though---it is an art form that I will always strive for but thankfully---I have discovered---there is freedom outside that box!

I stumbled onto you blog a week ago or so and have enjoyed your Art du Jour so much! Flowers in watercolor are very challenging! I look forward to seeing more of your paintings.

I just started my first art journal book. What a great form of expression rather than just writing in a journal.
