Here's wishing you all a good start in the new week!
For Art Journal Journey, masculine-feminine, I made a journal page using an image of Mahatma Gandhi. I used a brush-wipe page onto which I sprinkled some brushos and water for the background. I drew my profile of him with charcoal, gave the head a coat of diluted white paint to make it a shade lighter than the rest, and placed the printed image, (clipartsfree.net) inside my head. I drew the glasses etc with charcoal and used a bit of white paint on them, too.
I recently read in some texts from Qumran a sentence which stuck in my mind, and inspired me to collage the quotes of Gandhi as part of his dress: 'Clothe yourself with wisdom like a robe, put knowledge upon you like a crown, and be seated on the throne of perception'. The quotes were computer generated; I have written them again here to make it easier for you to read them.
Man can never be a woman's equal in the spirit of selfless service with which nature has endowed her.
Where there is love there is life
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony
My life is my message
The weak can never forgive, forgiveness is an attribute of the strong
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others
You must be the change you want to see in the world.
I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, anything goes, Mix-it-monthly, facial profile, Kim Dellow's Blog for Face art, and anything but cute, Masculine.
Today I enjoyed a summery walk with sunshine and a heavenly breeze. I walked through the fields and long the Rhine, and enjoyed it very much.

The horses are in the old moat just now:
The path along the wall is almost grown over:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
