The true harvest of life is intangible...it is in the tints of the morning and evening...it is in the stardust caught...a segment of the rainbow. Henry David Thoreau

ART JOURNAL ROUND ROBIN
I am taking part in an Art Journal Round Robin and this is the double page spread I've done in Niki's "Birdsong" book. I have used the theme of Bellbirds and used the first verse of the poem of the same name written by Henry Lawson around the outside edges of the spread starting at the bottom left hand corner clockwise. It is a much loved poem that I'm sure every Australian child has learned in primary school.
Being creative has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember, it is food for my spirit. I am never happier than when I am thinking about my next creation, working on it and getting lost in the creative process, through to the joy of being happy with the completed piece of art. I have been engrossed with so many different media, each one adding another dimension to my life and my art. I really love to try anything new that sparks my interest. When I can't make art, I am constantly thinking about it, I just need to be better at tearing myself away from the everyday, to lose myself in my studio, BUT I'M WORKING ON IT!! I feel so blessed by the wonderful friends that I have made through my art, they do so much to sustain me every day. I live on a beautiful 5 acre property in the mountains on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, Australia.
