They say there are no mistakes in art, well I found that out the hard way when I started this page. Originally it was horizontal and I had drawn a tree branch and written some words, then to my dismay, realized that the journal was upside down! Ugh~ Because this was on the backside of a completed page, I tried to figure out what to do. Sometimes these things force us to be even more creative and this page grew out of my mistake. I tried looking at the tree branch from different angels and not seeing it as a branch, but instead just studying the lines of it. It looked sort of like a womans dress, so I started with that. There would be no room for her head, so I added it in seperately. Then I found what the page was trying to tell me, ‘Sometimes all you need is a different perspective’. How true in life and in art. So I will try to look at things differently, to see the possibilities, to find the hidden meaning.
I am going to call this little journal, ‘Shades of Grey, January Journaling’ in honor of my Pitt Pen fascination and paying homage to this month of winter ahead.
