Dreaming in pastel colors, capturing chandeliers

"Poetry often enters through
the window of irrelevance."
M. C. Richards

I've been journaling up a storm. Ideas feed ideas ~ art feeds more art. There is always something else, something else, something else to try. It doesn't matter where you start but you do have to start. Anywhere. And don't stop.

Dreaming in pastel colors,
capturing chandeliers.

I discovered pastel clouds while working in this picture book.

I found this extra wide book, in landscape format, at the discount book store for a few dollars. The pages are glossy but I haven't retained much of the original abstract imagery. The book is 12"x8.5" closed, a lush 24" open. And where an index card is a jigsaw puzzle - challenging me to make the most of a tiny canvas, a picture book provides so much space, vast space, so that I can start anywhere and end up anywhere.
