I know – this is a 'serious' looking man compared to the sweet girls that I have been painting & drawing! Let me introduce you to 'The Bard of Avon' or, as he is better known…. William Shakespeare. He is the subject & title of my new Journal. I am not sure where I am going to include this drawing, or how I am going to add it in, as I want to create something a bit less ordered than I normally do, along the lines of what Traci Bautista creates – or DJ Pettit…………Traci taught at this year's Artistic Journey Retreat & the girls I had staying did her class & what they created looked great………AND my mind is a bit jumbled, so a 'jumbled' journal with odd shaped pages would probably just be indicitive of the time that I created it – I think I will probably find a happy medium between the 'loud' look of Traci's work and the gentle softness of DJ's in some sort of middle ground.
