in my soul
wide and strong,
searching for
into the world."

This is a page from my upcoming circle journal project with Kelly Snelling. I cannot wait for this exchange to get underway but in the meantime, I am creating a few pages to start my journal off on its journey. I am working on raw canvas, gessoing the pages before painting, and then creating whatever images come to mind. Paradoxically, I am purposely trying to work spontaneously, without my usual amount of pre-project planning and pondering. A large red flower flashed into my head and off I went!

Michelle, your art is blowing me away! Every time I come visit your blog I take a deep breath when I see what you have here! Thank you for sharing. I've been watching you and Kelly and I think this project will be amazing!
I know you are busy, but I just made my first ATC's ...I know they are kinda sad looking, but if you could take a minute to pop by my post and leave a few constuctive comments, I would be more than grateful!! Hugs

BUT, i have a spread started and will work on it this weekend. i have art therapy next thursday and am going to show the journal to my teacher as project for the group. but a much smaller format. then i'm putting it straight into the mail to YOU!
