Note from the Heart

I just completed these journal pages for the round robin journal group I'm in. The theme of this journal is Notes from the heart of a woman. I had a hard time getting started but once I got into it I enjoyed it. I continually grapple with trying to be less reserved in my art. I like that I played with stronger color and pattern. I can't wait to see what happens when I really let go!

  7. Lisa, I LOVE it!! This is so gorgeous - the art, the colors and the lettering! I have a journal, which I've carried around with me for days now, not knowing how to get started. Your page might just be the inspiration I needed... Hugs, Silke

  8. I find the play between the text, imagery and material very interesting. There appears to be a conflict occurring within the narrative between the left and right page. On the right you have placed a figure with wings, which seems to represent flight or freedom yet the figure seems ungainly, old fashioned and has it’s arms and legs crossed in a defensive stance. In the text you have "held" and "contained" and the page is covered with red netting. However, at the left there is a stylized, lyrical figure, playing with a kite or balloons without encumbrance with the composition partially cutting into the page at the right. The text there that jumps out at me is “authentic self”. Very many things happening on different levels, I would enjoy talking to you about it more sometime. This is very beautiful work.
