I have followed the instructions to replicate some one else's birds. I am learning what I do not like and what I think is working. I hope to do some birds "on my own" I cannot see a bird as it flies away and then draw it. but I am hoping to sit down with a book and make a robin today.

I am enjoying doing the collage thing. Terry is right people add life to the collage. I have trouble with cutting people up but am getting better at using them.

material for nature journal

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.

Creation comforts

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Audrey Hepburn
A friend sent this quote to me today. When I did this collage ironically I was thinking about being broken and weary...tired and abused and finding rest and acceptance....
I was sorting through some junk in the basement and found this. I don't remember what year I made it but I remember the kids loved the day and papers were flying....
"From the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper,from a passing shape, from a spider's web. . . we must pick out what is good for us where we can find it."~Pablo Picasso
I read this quote in Alisa's blog which is a great inspiration to me. I want that kind of excellence in my art journals....... we will see (:
