New Journal

 When the local Borders store went out of business, I bought several books for half price including Journal Spilling by Diana Trout. I also found a journal for 60% off. I glued two pages together to make the paper thicker and then added a coat of gesso. I think I'll do a bunch of pages so that they are all ready to go.
 This is a page that I cut out of the journal to give a bit more room. I colored it with watercolor pencils and then wet it down just to get some color on the page. I will tear this up to use as collage bits to paste into the journal.
This was the sunrise by my house a couple of weeks ago. The air was smokey because of forest fires so it makes the sun really red when it rises. There isn't much good about forest fires and smokiness in the air but it does make for spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
