NEED TO KNOW . . .

I had to draw a flamingo.

Dreaming Opens a window to a broader universe. ~ Maryam Ashkanian

Luckily this journal is not for publication or for sale. 
It is just to share with a friend. 
So the evidence of the joys of a glue stick can be laughed about and forgiven!

the mini Art Journal and the picnic

pages 10 & 11

RED GINGHAM

Enjoy the little things in life 
for one day you'll look back 
and realize they were the BIG things.

There are certain fabrics - like gingham - that make me nostalgic. 
The particular color of the gingham helps me to recall specific activities. 
With RED GINGHAM I can remember picnics. Looking back . . .
