Journal Spank


Sometimes one must be pushed into doing some art. Here's my 'push' from the Yahoo Group, theartjournal. All you haveto do is reach behind you and whatever you touch you drqw. Well, I touched my printmaking suitcase (with lots of pockets and zippers) and here's my rendition. Earlier that evening, I did my first stencil which sprayed with the only spray paint I had. I don't usually use blue, but was drawn to it last night. I've been thinking a lot about how blessed I am. I don't have any money to speak of, but I have made peace with my shortcomings, and am pretty content most of the time. I have lots of friends, more than enough art supplies, and a great big book I journal/art in. These pages are in my 15"x30" book. Thanks for being part of my journey.

Laura, I love the way you use color and I'm just blown away by Banty Baby! Great work! You go to AU? So do I! Maybe we'll all be able to meet up for a coffee or a drink or something while there this year. Marilyn
