Time on My Hands

A wealth of journal pages!  This is what happens when you have a lot of time on your hands.  My leg is up on a pillow.  Crutches by my side.  Though my life is a little microcosmish (new word!)  it's amazing what is possible when life seems to contract.  I often think of Frida Kahlo who was a creative amazon despite her physical difficulties! And I only need to worry about an ankle.  Puts it all into perspective really!  Two weeks till I may be able to place weight on ankle, I'm counting down the days!

I felt the need to practice faces.  Originally, underneath this face was a blue cat that didn't work out.  So I collaged some torn newspaper and gessoed over the top. Then this woman just appeared!  She looks a little sad and worried!  Happy faces next time, I promise!

Who doesn't love hearts! I love the creative life! I hope you are inspired to journal too!
