My A3 mixed media Journal page today for Art Journal Journey, through my window, shows Lady Julian of Norwich. She was an anchoress (someone who has retired from the world) who lived in a tiny house attached to the Church of St Julian in Norwich. She lived from ca. 1342-1416. After a severe illness she had a series of visions which led her to her secluded life. She wrote a book, 'Revelations of Divine Love', which is the first book written by a woman in the English language - and that at a time when the majority of the population could neither read nor write. I do not have the time to write more about her visions and ideas here, but those who are interested can read about her here.
Her little house had 2 windows, a window to the Church, so she could take part in the services, and a window to the outside, where she could talk to people. She called them her 'window to God' and her 'Window to the world'
I have showed her here in a Gothic window, with her 2 windows to her right and left. I stenciled the diamond pattern to give the feeling of diamond-pane windows.
Today started off with a super sunrise again:
I enjoyed blue skies on my walk through town, although it was very cold.
There is a feeling of autumn in the air:
I was pleased to see that this old, rusty gate is still there:
The apples are ripe, but I had no ladder:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
