Above is my first page of the new year. And below is a page by Zorana in my book. We swapped books while I was there and painted in each others.
I was armed with my copy of the latest Somerset Studio (Jan/Feb 2009) when I arrived in California. You know, it is the one where I have two little corners published. There is a wonderful article by Angela Cartwright titled "The Shadow Dance". I knew without a doubt that I would find my shadow in San Francisco.
Sure enough right there at the tourist look outs above the Golden Gate Bridge and the bay bridge we began to dance.
Sasha went first. And then Zorana and I. We discovered the fun of making a journal page with shadows. You should try it. Zorana will probably show the page I did in her book later but she too has joined the January journal challenge and has posted a beautiful page for today.
When you come home from an adventure, do you share what you have done with your dear partner? Well, even though mine mostly seems disinterested, he has to look, because I show him. I showed him the shadow page and while he had that whatintheworldwillyoudonext look on his face, I ask him, "do you know which shadow is me?" He knows my shadow! We had such a good laugh about it. No words. Just laughs. I don't know what he was thinking but I had the warmest fuzziest feeling. He knows my shadow.
