The Optimist

Here's my art journal page for week 4 of Collage with Crowabout, Nancy B's group on Flickr ( her blog is awesome Something Two Crow About ). The pictures provided to us this week were so fun and colorful, and when I saw this girl's face I just clicked back to that optimism and idealism from the late 60's to early 70's. I also had to do a page on a MUCH lighter note than my last one!!

I'm really enjoying these journal pages and find myself wanting to do more and more of them.

"And I dreamed I saw the bombers

Riding shotgun in the sky

And they were turning into butterflies

Above our nation." ~ Joni Mitchell

Oh my goodness Gaye, I don't know where to begin. You have been cranking out some wonderful artwork while I was away!!! I had to go to the second page to try and catch up :) Love everything about this piece and so many others you've created as well! Super eye candy!
