Google+ What I Made Today: A Welcoming to Spring

A Welcoming to Spring


Today I worked in several art journals, including a new one … a journal which (I'm sensing) will be a visual meditation of my relationship with "The Elements" … a journal tied to a premium Book of Days workshop taught by the sparkling Effy Wild, an inspired guide and teacher with a radiant sense of humor. Anyway …

Since spring returned to my little acre, I've started more seedlings, prepped a garden bed or two, and created my journal cover for "The Elements." My inner cover is in the works and represents a farewell to winter, an expression of gratitude that I feel is essential before rooting too deeply in the airy verve of spring. Even so, with spring thick in the air, I was compelled to finish this page, a simple expression of moving from the earthy to airy energies of the season.

That's what I made today.

Peace.

Your art journals are so lovely! My Mom recently gave me a journal with blank pages and a handmade bound cover. Your paintings are inspiring me!

This is lovely, Rose. Soft, ephemeral, and nurturing - just like spring! :o)

The title for your upcoming journal/book "The Elements" sounds so interesting and inviting. Can't wait for you to show it.

Yes, spring is in the air and no better place to start it than by viewing your blog and welcome of it!
