FEAR AND LOVE: "there are two basic motivating forces: fear and love.
When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love,
we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.
We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections.
If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to
love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes
for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision
of people who embrace life."
It's been several months since I worked in my "Teesha Moore" style journal and I hadn't realized how much I missed it until I picked it up again. I have been working on other art pieces; pen and ink sketches, watercolor, fabric journal covers but nothing gives me the joy and satisfaction that creating funky…even strange like collage pages in my "Teesha" style journal.
Here is my latest creation using a few sketches (the flagmen) from my grandfather's journal when he was a Merchant Marine. Way back when! (Im not exactly sure of the date but at least 70 years ago.) I never knew my grandfather, as he died before I was born... but it makes my heart swell to see our art share the same page.
Until next time…..
