August Already

I am amazed at how quickly time passes.  I can really tell the summer is moving as it gets darker much earlier now.
This is a journal spread I completed a couple of days ago.  There is something about working in my journal that is so comforting.  It's where I can express my feeling and try new things.  The skull in the lower left is an image I was drawn to- and yes while we associate a skull or skeletons with death I feel it does represent other kinds of death- like the end of a bad habit or a way of thinking.  I tried out doing some transfers on this spread- the black & white drawings of face parts were transferred to the blank spread and then I painted over.  Like most of my journal spreads I had no real idea in starting out and that is why I love journaling.  I just jump in and start painting.


  1. It is just so freeing to just start and see what happens. I love the face behind the skull. Well, you know me, I love it all!

  2. Thank you John- I do feel good about this spread
