Hope all of you who are snowed in in the States and Canada are
keeping warm and safe! You have really had more than
your share this time round!
For Art Journal Journey I have another piece for Birds, beasts and humans. I used a background I made recently with water colours, stenciling and distress inks. I drew the heads with my home-made stencils, and filled them using stencils from stencilry org and Dina Wakley. Then I drew lots and lots of circles in white. The quote is part of a quote from Nicholas Black Elk, a holy man of the Sioux:
Everything the Power of the World does is done in a circle. The sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves. Our tepees were round like the nests of birds, and these were always set in a circle, the nation's hoop.
I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, circles.
The photos are from yesterday; today we were blanketed with damp, grey mist all day!
The gulls enjoyed the weather, too,
and I enjoyed watching them, as always.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
