(another journal page from the art/heart journal .....
mini-chunky board book, tissue paper, oil pastels, odorless mineral spirits, black ink, gold star)
In fact I am adopting this quote into my heart.
It is so true.
"Beyond mountains, there are more mountains."
... and being a Haitian proverb it is especially filled with meaning right now.
It always helps me sort through my feelings to apply something troubling to art.
In '03, when the space shuttle Columbia exploded in mid air I got busy making handmade paper which I made into a book and is now a prized possession.
My thoughts go to Haiti with every glass of water I so freely pour for myself.
With every night laying my head upon my soft pillow.
With a multitude of mundane everyday luxuries.
