The fear is from the tone in this country- seeing how many actually are supporting the evil that spews from the devil spawn known as Trump. The anger is: The North Carolina legislature has called a special session for Wednesday to overturn Charlotte's recently passed nondiscrimination ordinance that provides much-needed protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) residents. The hate that is growing in this country is very scary. The sadness is my husband and I just returned from being with his sister to say goodbye. She died on Sunday. It's hard to process and deal with all these strong emotions all at the same time.
I did this journal spread over a year ago but it still expresses my feelings.
The other online class I took ( or I should say am takings as I am not done) was Katie Kendrick's Grit and Grace The Heart of Co-Creative Painting. This class was an amazing class-So much content and was a real stretch for me in a very good way. The class was 4 weeks and each week started with a mark making exercise to warm up- the there were journaling exercises- she called them journal excavations. Good name- as they were sometimes deep with meaning and emotion. Then the painting exercises for the week. I will share some of my work for this class.
This was a mark making pieces for one week
This was a face painting exercises- she had us use different
substrates. This was on a piece of cardboard.
These are painting of faces-a real big stretch for me but fun.
The rest of the photos are of journal spreads I did for the class.
