Windows and Wishes
This morning I received land mail from my good friend Joan Sandford-Cook. Her words came hand written on one of her own printed cards, of which she sent two! I decided to cut the blank one up and stick it in my journal, the 8x20" original started a series of long rectangles in today's journal page. I filled the second with a quick sketch of my youngest Son, Harry, sorting through his sketching box, making room for new work and possible gifts from Santa. In the third oblong I decide to work from imagination, rendering part of Joan's beautiful stained glass window painting into a scene of my own. Harry is going into hospital for surgery on his teeth tomorrow, so I especially like the fact that he is sandwiched between light and a place of prayer on this page.
The second page in my journal today is a personal wish I make every year, sketched from imagination and hope!
