journal spread, thinking of ancestors
i wanted to be sure to comment back to all of you
who have left me sweet messages before i posted
here on my blog. i really appreciate that you have
taken the time to say hello. i think i am caught up.
this journal spread is in memory of my ancestors.
i recently read a book called heart mountain
by gretel ehrlich which took place in
wyoming at one of the sites of an internment camp.
all of my family members were interned during world war II
so it was a very moving book to me. i didn't intend this page to
go in this direction but the topic must have been on my mind.
in the lower right corner is a photo of the japanese american
troop who fought in the american army. i have mentioned
before that this troop was the most decorated troop in the army.
practicing with a limited palate
collage and acrylic, we have it all
small color studies
these pieces are more from my assignments
in art entwined with misty mawn. she is quite
extraordinary if you do not know of her.
posting with paint party friday. thank you
eva and kristin for hosting for 4 years and 1 week!
