altered book

Today, I used my intuition to experiment 
with collage elements & washes
as backgrounds for an altered book.


‎"Instead of weeping 
when a tragedy occurs in a songbird’s life, 
                   it sings away its grief. 
I believe 
we could well follow 
the pattern of our feathered friends."
- Robert S. Walker

altered life

I gave myself an early Christmas gift:
the "altered life / altered book"
an e-course by Wendy Brightbill.

Wendy has been an unexpected inspiration to me.
I am so glad for her presence in my life now.
I began her course with a writing prompt & learned:
"the cry of my heart is to live again."

who I am now?

(Embryo / my largest abstract painting)

In 2011... 
I graduated college
in ART for education
moved to my own apartment
began an adventure in substitute teaching  
experimented with paper, pencils and paint
studied Neuro Linguistic Programming in Cali
visited friends/family & traveled in South Africa~
I am learning to BE me in the second 1/2 of my life.
