"Wondering"........ (not worrying)

I realize that since I started blogging, I have done less art. [However, I do love posting my art! Seeing it on the screen is very rewarding!]

Now, to get back to to my never fully developed drawing skills (I spent years making quilts and sewing rather than drawing and painting), I am doing some art journal challenges and more practice. We are doing a weekly self-portrait. It is to be included in our journal. This is mine from this morning. I think I have captured my mood, though of course not truly my "realistic" appearance. (we won't go into that...LOL!)

I try to do daily morning pages and the weekly"artist date" from Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way".

Today I am going with a friend, Paula (of the wonderful foxglove garden) to visit fellow quilter/gardeners in our area! Fun!

Below is another page from my art/collage journal. [ Using an add for exclusive drapery fabric...]

This page reminds me of my daughter in her white anklet days! She IS growing her travel website/blog into a wonderful business by reaching for those stars!

Lila I think you have captured an essence of yourself in the self portrait. I have started doing morning pages and artist dates again after a break from them.
They do work!!!(Fill the well) Your art journaling challenges sound fun.
