My trees...

As the old saying goes "money grows on trees", we explored in Orly's art journaling lab what if anything we wanted grew on trees? What would your tree look like? What if anything you desired could be plucked off a tree, what would you put on your tree? Love, youth, creativity? What would you put on your tree? What would it look like?

Hey, also check out "Work of Art The Next Great Artist" on Bravo. I gave it a shot last week it was fun, I think I will give it a try for a few weeks. Sarah Jessica Parker is executive producer. It follows fourteen artists competing for an art show. What brings this to my post is that there was an interesting quote from one of the judges, "an artists work is an outward expression of the artist's inner world" Welcome to my inner world.

I love your journal pages Brian. Though I haven't attended Orly's workshops I'm studying the pages you and she have posted to see what I can figure out myself about journaling about my response to nature. I love your trees. Great job!
