Dancing with Transition

Dancing with Transition
Momentary, Permanent,
Feathered Wings Soar


This is the mostly completed journal page from the 40 word challenge. Die cut book page hearts in an altered book. Spray inks, 3D Paint, gel and Pitt Pens. Not sure I'm totally pleased with the haiku, but hey, this isn't rocket science, it's art so I'll let it go. :)

I really am dancing with transition... becoming a full time artist and owner of two Etsy shops (Vintage and Art) this past two weeks, rather than doing it all while also working for someone else. I'm re-learning the discipline and scheduling time for each thing I'm doing, while still allowing time to relax and enjoy my family and the summer weather.

In other news, I have started a junk mail/recycled paper journal from bits of heavier papers from the recycle bin, and masking tape. So far I have the papers taped together, and have applied a layer of gesso on the "cover". Much more coming on this project.



I'm interested to see what other artists at Paint Party Friday have worked on this week. 


Also sharing with Artists in Blogland.

I pretty much just finished up Nefertiti. It's been a little hot out this way. I like how you are learning all different types of art. Glad you are enjoying yourself and have your own business at Etsy. Good luck with that. Have a great weekend Helen.:) Take care.

I like your book of he(arts) and your
haiku. I also enjoy reading about your lifestyle. Congrats on your two new Etsy shops. Where do you find your vintage? I love that area of the country. A good friend lives in Anacortes and on occasion I visit. Thank you for your comment on my blog, have a wonderful week.
