Divine Journey

there is joy
in artful creative expression
a bit like the seasons of Spring
and now Summer
breathing life into a drawing
an idea
a movement
is to join forces with something alive
with the current of breath

this is my first multi-media piece, stamps- both rubber and postal,
adhering bits of napkins,
(thanks to Sharon Tomlinson's napkin tutorial)
also paint and colored pencils
all this in my moleskin journal

it was a bit scary to take the face in the top drawing and start doing things that are new to me
all that tender attention to shading with colored pencils could disappear with the stroke of a brush
instead it was fun
and inspired me to explore this ladies spirit
to feel into her divine journey

today is the first day of Summer

Happy Solstice to each and everyone of you!

Also to all you lovely fathers
who care for your families with wisdom
generosity and joy
I thank you with all my heart, for you make our world a better place!
Happy Father's Day~
