Today’s art journal was a true expression of all the things happening in me and around me.
The studio is still in the process of being reconstructed after the flood, and this week we got heartbreaking news of the loss of a friend.
Sometimes things happen all at once and it can feel like too much. (Not to mention all the rest of the things happening in the world)
So when I approached my journal, I just asked myself what I needed, I blurted out these words…
” I need to find the beauty in all this turmoil, to find my peace in all the unknown (hard for a control person), Healing for the hurt that myself and the hubby were feeling, and rest. When I lay down because of exhaustion, sleep doesn’t seem to come easily.
So this page is all those things. There is a lot going on on the page but the striking beauty of the flowers stand out and I just let it all go and got lost in the process.
It’s super simple but sometimes that’s best …. I hope you enjoy the project and I hope that you always know YOU are loved!
