It's a walk, now it's some art

First it's my feet



one


after


another


then it's a money plant in bloom



when you look closer it's the veins running through



then it's two butterflies making new life in an herb garden



look again and it's the butterfly's eye



then it's something taking over



it's a thorn


and then many thorns


it's an umbrella made of green



it's seed to feed the animals


no, it's sunflowers growing accidental in a bunch



could it be an unfinished project


or a project on it's way



certainly it's a project complete


boo hiss, it's a weed


now it's a sea of dandelions


it's something growing where it's not supposed to



now it's something that's allowed



it's trying to heal


it's healthy


it's baby life uncurling



it's coming to the end of the cycle


but it hasn't even started yet


it's laying around


now it's crawling along



later it's drifting away




Suddenly it's drying out



now hanging out



But so rock-in


and swing-in


After all, it's breaking down



and burning up


but still, it's always ALIVE and AWAKENING and BECOMING


But mostly, it's inviting you



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, it's gonna be some art. Here's some pages from an art journal I recently started. Before I was more into making art that could be displayed. I didn't get the whole keep it hidden away in an art journal thing. But I've become infected, cough, cough.................






























a page in progress


Make your day great!

  3. I enjoyed going for a walk with you - wow - what beautiful butterflies - are they swallowtails? We don't get such huge ones in the UK! And your journal is so, so, lovely - I want so much to try and create an art journal, but I just can't seem to get my head around it! x
