It's Done!

Finally!  I finished the other side of the journal page for Ocala's Collaborative Art Journal!  Now, I can send it off and be done with it!!  I tell you, I'm not very good at doing art on a deadline.  I kept changing my mind about what to do, so I kept on doing nothing!!  This morning, I went into the studio, turned up the music, and just let it happen!

I also just returned from my annual Kansas City visit with my kids and grandkids.  This trip was very special - my daughter and I went to my Aunt Arline's 100th Birthday party in St. Louis!  What an experience!  My sister and brother were there, my only uncle (my father's brother), as well as all my 1st cousins, and all of their kids and grandkids!  We hadn't all been together for such a long time, I didn't even know half of the people there.  Now, if I just managed to get some of my Aunt Arline's genes -- such a gorgeous and gracious lady!

what a great photo of your 100 years young Aunt... what a blessing she must be to her family... love that smile. Your page is gorgeous, but I know what you mean about deadlines... I did the sketchbook project one year and vowed not to do that again... I take weeks sometimes on a painting... I get part way done and then let it sit while I think about where/what to do next with it.. sometimes I just throw them away and start over.

She doesn't look her age, she must have access to that famous Florida foundtain of youth!
I love your journal pages, they have inspired me to start some sketch book pages of my own.

I meant "fountain of youth"

Thanks for your comments! My Aunt Arline lived her whole life in Iowa, until moving to St. Louis several years ago. She was the oldest of five children - my father was #4. Now, only the oldest and the youngest are still alive. Hope I got her genes!
