Art journal page

Finished a new Art Journal page. I started this one a couple of weeks ago and liked the sketch so much that I first made the painting Dance for yourself using the same sketch. This time I left a message for myself: count your blessings every day. That will be one of my resolutions for 2011!!

Celebrate life!

Another angel with a message: celebrate life. I wish I could celebrate life every single day for the rest of my life! I try but sometimes it's hard when your body is tired and aching and you feel depressed. I thought I felt good enough to not take the Kira forte (natural anti-depressive) but I think I need some more time to get rid of those nasty depressing thoughts!!

A new angel!!

Already finished a new painting!! The idea for this painting came up when I was drawing in my art journal. So now I have an unfinished sketch of the same angel in my art journal and I have to come up with something new!
Well, here she is my angel with a message! (PS Not in the mood to write, feeling very tired today!!)

Yeah I know ....

... haven't been here for a while! I have been busy with the removal of my parents to a home for elderly people! They both moved in on Wednesday November 24. I went to the rehab to travel together with my dad in a wheelchair cab back to his new home and his wife for 57 years. They have been living separated for almost 10 months due to his illness! My dad was very emotional when we arrived at his new home. I tried to take photos of him and my mother when they were reunited but my dad is crying on both photos. Besides that the photos are a bit blurry because I cried too!
Since they have moved to their new home I have been busy with cleaning up their old house. It has to be sold! I would have loved to buy it from my parents but I just don't have the money so I have to let it go!

In between the removal and cleaning up the house I have had some time to draw and practice the 3/4 faces from Suzi Blu's workshop La Sirena. I have to make a large painting on canvas with 3 figures. One of the faces I drew was too large for the painting and I used it to make an Art Journal page.
