More Pages From My Art Journal
We had our neighbor over for dinner the other night and I thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent together. I love when you can sit around a table, without any distractions or electronics, and just talk....and have that talk be about things that matter...life, purpose, difference. It was a very meaningful night for me. One thing he shared was a ritual he experienced growing up as a child. When he and his siblings would sit at the dinner table at night, their father would always ask them, "What did you do today to make the world a better place?" Each child would respond and each child also knew that they would be asked the same question the next evening. The story had a big impact on me and I have begun to ask myself the same question at the end of every day. And I know I am going to ask myself that same question the next night and the next - so I go through my day intent on having an answer to that question. So now I ask you, what have you done today to make the world a better place?
Today I wanted to share a few more pictures of pages in my art journal. Color, pattern, different media - all things I am continuing to explore. And today I was also very excited to work with Michael to put together a gift I had purchased for myself for the new year...
Saint Remy multi-angle studio easel. I had been watching it for awhile and finally decided the time was right. Now I need to stop admiring it and break it in! :) I will definitely be sharing my progress!
