"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

working on a few things for this springs red barn sale (see button on sidebar)



below is a journal spread i did several months ago...yes, i seem to be drawn to this color wheel thingy.
i removed it from the journal and framed it. i think i will do some journal spreads on loose paper and
frame them for the sale as well. i am thinking if priced reasonably one would rather have an original
piece over a print.


i was not happy with this spread, so it became

















this...now why will this one not load horizontal like the rest i do not know...drives me nuts!


and, added a little more to this one

You would never know that was the same journal spread...I love how you are willing to make changes when you are not satisfied with something...You are a gusty lady and I like that a lot...

I too wish I could go to the Red Barn sale...I know it's a neat show.....

Love you,
Nanie

If I saw these color wheel paintings at the red barn sale I'd snap them up so fast your head would spin. I think you are onto something BIG, Mary.
Once in Carmel, CA I saw some framed journal pages in a gallery for big bucks. they were awesome. People like personal art. Go for it.

love all the pages, in this post and the previous. Oh do plan to paint and frame pieces done on the watercolour paper, people would far rather invest in something original and these are wonderful. Great stuff, great ideas, the 'wheels' are churning!
