Today I had a day off from work. It felt great to spend part of it in the studio, working on a few pages in my journals. This is one of them, and it’s called “Fly Away.”
For the past two days, all of Wisconsin has been stuck in a deep freeze, with temperatures hovering at or below zero and wind chills down to -20. I’ve been staying indoors and feeling trapped, and have been fantasizing about escaping to somewhere warm. I think that’s what led me to explore this subject matter and to reach for such warm, bright, vibrant colors.
This page was created with vintage papers, old book pages, fluid acrylics, gesso, spray ink, pigment ink, stencils, Washi tape, markers and pens, rub-ons, stickers, and a magazine image.
Thanks for stopping by–and be sure to stay warm!
Beautiful work! I love your sense of whimsy. Makes me feel like I’m in someplace warm, if just for a minute 🙂

Thanks Erica! 🙂 We sure could have used some sunshine and warmth on that day. If I can’t travel to it, I might as well create it at my studio table! 😉
