I love exploring possibilities and a combination of words and images can be so powerful. The classic old fashioned style of a beautiful woman and a long flowing dress surrounded by growing plants, words and ideas have so many possibilities. These journal experiments were so much fun and had a lovely simplicity. The potential of exploring so many different materials that allow me to express myself in so many ways bring a real joy to journaling. These women seem to have a gentle strength as they look straight at us and the line patterns in the words add to their power. I do like the way they seem to move towards the viewer and even though they do not feel like finished works they speak of the journey. It is great to have the opportunity to just play with ideas without worrying about the outcome and when it works…we’ll that is a lovely bonus.
