Summer Solstice TIGER

Finally a blog post and even more importantly I have begun to journal again after months of abandonment. Life has been hectic and I haven't had the energy to create. I stopped by my artist friend Vanessa Johanning house on June 21st for a couple of hours and we spent some time journaling and chatting. Just what I needed, thank you Vanessa!

I took a progress photo, when done for the day, of a collage that was not speaking to me.  The next day I applied a wash of burnt umber mixed with pthalo blue. Seven days later a tiger revealed itself to me and I spent a couple of blissful hours coaxing it from the background. It might not be completely done but I am anxious to share my progress.

I loaded the progress photo on my computer, signed onto this blog and was greeted by the "spinning wheel of death". I restarted my computer and it has refused to load. Ugh! Not to be deterred with my Tiger totem in power, I plugged in my old laptop that hasn't been used in a year and here I am.

I wish you willpower, personal strength and courage!
