I know it must seem I have abandoned my blog
and my readers
and even my art itself.
I like to keep my blog positive,
but I feel you would want an explanation.
I don't know how to explain my gloominess.
I feel detached and disenchanted.
Usually I blame the long winter,
but this year spring came early and it has done nothing to ease
my dull despair.
But I am trying to pull myself up and get on with it.
Books make me happy-er and I had some fun looking at and reading
Seth's new book...it was really cool to see so many of my
friends' art and thoughts published.
I bought book in the middle for $5.00 and the book on top...
I constructed that one for an Art Journal round-robin
that starts April 1st.
I have been using and re-purposing things I already have this year,
and this book was made from the parts of 2 tablets of water color paper, an old book from a library sale and some scrapbook paper.
Some sawing and some gluing.
Some hammering and some etching.
The sign in page.
I got that Frida card at the Art Museum in Pittsburgh this past summer.
I just finished my tag today.
I think if I continue focusing on all the good,
the yucky-ness will drift away.
