For this entry I decided to skip around a litte bit. I had some pictures of cats from a day-by-day calendar that I trimmed out and made into a woven piece. It turned out kind of cool, but I still needed to add a poem that had a metaphor in it. Here is the poem:
I like how it all turned out. I didn't use the sealant this time and opted to leave it as is with just a coat of fixatif on it. Here is the page.
Doing the weaving was fun and it was inspired by a dear friend of mine. Thanks Haithe, you are such an inspiration. I hope that your art journal is going well too.
Real life, art, and other fun stuff
Life is a journey, not a destination. Sure, we have all heard it before and it has become a cliche in our society. There is truth in that statement though. When one road is closed (and anyone that drives in and around the Toledo area can verify this), there is always another route waiting to lead you to where you need to be. I've learned a lot over the past few years and I plan to document both the good times and the bad. Hopefully, through it all, I can help some other poor, lost, lonely soul that is wandering on the road called life.
