"Frame of Perspective"
"Frame of Perspective" was done in Orly Avineri's Art Journaling Class this week. We did an interesting crackle finish for the background. I will definatly be doing it again.

January 2010 Calendar
The January 2010 Calendar is for part of a calendar challenge on "the kathryne wheel" blog. I am not sure if I will be continuing the calendar for the rest of the year but it was a lot of fun to do. I used some favorite papers and some hand-made paper we did in a class with Orly Avineri's Art Journal group.

It is currently pouring down rain in Southern California. I born and raised in Montana, and they certainly have some severe weather up there. I have been in southern California since 1984 and am very climatized to the warm weather we enjoy here. I sort of chuckle every time it rains in southern California we have "Storm Watch (fill in year)" on EVERY news channel. We are currently getting a lot of rain here. There is actually flooding in areas of Long Beach, the ground cannot absorb the moisture fast enough. We are actually getting flooding in our area here. I will be home on "Storm Watch" tonight.

Hello Brian,

nice pages : colors draw the attention immediately to the photos. I also like the borders you made on both pages.

If you see all the sorrow in Haïti, we surely can't stand on the side and do nothing. In Belgium too people donate to give a helping hand to Haïti...

greetings from a "luxury" land ( no hunger, a roof above our head, no real big worries... we are very happy people...)

Great explosions of colors and vivid life...No matter what your inspiration of the moment is, your journal pages always look super Brian'ish' to me.

Hey Brian, so good to meet you! I love your pages too. I am clicking and clicking to see them closer but for some reason it's not working.

I am now your follower. :)
